Well it’s true, a lot can be revealed about how you’ll age by looking at your mother. A new study presented at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Plastic Surgery 2009 conference, examined 10 sets of similar looking mother-daughter pairs to measure changes in the aging female face. Using facial imaging and 3D computer modeling, the authors found a consistent pattern of sagging and volume loss specifically around the inner corners of the eye and lower eyelids in the mothers. Interestingly, volume loss in the lower eyelid ranged from 0.3 to 1cc, beginning in the mid 30s and continuing to progress steadily through life. The amount of volume loss was greater than previously estimated. To measure the full spectrum of aging, ages of the mother-daughter pairs ranged from 15 to 90 years old. These findings may act as a further guideline for cosmetic rejuvenation of the entire eye region.
By the Numbers:
Eyelid surgery was the fourth most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in 2008, with more than 221,000 procedures performed, according to the ASPS.
More than 190,000 women had eyelid surgery, making it the fourth most commonly requested procedure by women last year.
