Facelifts, facial creams, botox, fillers — we’re sure you’ve heard of all these ways to turn back the clock and look younger. But those aren’t all the options you have to look younger. One of America’s most popular and acclaimed cosmetic procedures is not only desirable for its aesthetic achievements, but also for its anti-aging effects: The Nose Job.

That’s right, the rhinoplasty (more commonly known as the nose job) is a safe, effective, and time-tested cosmetic procedure that has anti-aging properties that can make you look three years (or more!) younger. In the past year, UCLA conducted a study with 100 women (ages 16-72) who underwent a cosmetic rhinoplasty procedure. Using an artificial intelligence program, the researchers analyzed the before and after photos of the women by running cropped photos through an algorithm. 

In an article by StudyFinds, Dr. Jason Roostaeian, a senior author on the study, says, “The nose loses support as it ages and can take on a more prominent or droopy appearance. When we lose facial fat and volume in our cheeks, which are the canvas that our nose sits on, the nose becomes more prominent.” Thus, a rhinoplasty fixes that, adding a proportional and youthful look.

Nose Reshaping

How Does Rhinoplasty Work?

A nose job procedure can be done to correct breathing issues, nasal complications, nose disfigurement, overall facial aesthetic, and increase youthfulness. The procedure is an outpatient procedure, so there is no need for overnight stay. Depending on the needed/desired nose job, the surgeon will make cuts inside the nostril and/or the base of the nose. Then, the surgeon reshapes the cartilage and inner bone.  

But not all rhinoplasty procedures require surgery! Depending on the procedure, some nose job treatments can be non-surgical, correcting and re-shaping the nose with injection fillers. The process takes only 15 minutes and lasts for 1-2 years.

Does Rhinoplasty Make Me Look Younger

In the UCLA study, the artificial intelligence program scanned the photos of pre-rhinoplasty and post-rhinoplasty female patients, estimating their age with before-after photos and an algorithm. The technology recognizes facial patterns and features, including ones that are unnoticed by the human eye, but still alter visible appearance. The study found that the most significant results came from women over the age of 40 who underwent nose jobs — some looked up to 7 years younger post-rhinoplasty!  Since the median age of the participating women was 32, more studies will be done to further back up the 40+ age discovery.

One thing is for sure: the study found that a nose job will generally make patients look 3 years younger, sometimes even more, depending on the patient and the surgeon. Who would’ve guessed that a great way to look younger was right under our noses!

"[Rhinoplasty's anti-aging results] is something we have subjectively thought for many decades but now we have objective evidence through artificial intelligence to support this." ~Dr. Jason Roostaeian, UCLA
