Dr Joshua Zimm Said, they have studied nearly 50 patients who underwent cosmetic surgeries to look younger and took photographs of the patients for before and after comparison. Later on the photos which were taken later were presented in front of experts and researchers who were not familiar with the patient’s medical history.
The raters or subjects were asked to rate the photographs on a scale of 1 to 10 based on the attractiveness. However the photographs of the patients were blind folded to protect the privacy of the patient.
Surprisingly, the average age of the patients who were in the photographs predicted by raters was just 3 years younger to the patient’s original age.
