Everybody wants to be attractive. It is an important characteristic that defines who we are, how we see ourselves, and impacts on all our interpersonal personal relationships. Logic tells us that the 'attractive' individuals will generally be physically and mentally healthier, be more financially successful, have a greater number of relationships - platonic and intimate, and overall be better received by others. No bodily feature is as telling about our attractiveness than our face. This claim has been repeatedly verified and confirmed with numerous scientific and social studies.
In the battle between face and body, the face definitely has more of an edge because that is what usually gets noticed first and can make or break a first impression. In whatever situation, whether work, restaurant or in a bar, the first thing that grabs your attention is usually the facial features - hair, eyes and lips. Even if the body may be spectacular, without a pleasing face, most people will still deem that to be unattractive to mediocre at best.
Does that rule out the importance of body shape? No, but over time, we accept the diminishment of the body as part of aging. Even the most fit and trim 60-year-old will readily admit that, advertising campaigns to the contrary, 60 is not the “new” 20.
Facial features, however, can remain beautiful even into later life, especially with the modern techniques perfected by medical science to counteract the most obvious signs of aging or to change those things about ourselves we simply do not like.
A wide variety of procedures are available to correct virtually every feature, from total face lifts and lateral brow lifts, to ear surgery, rhinoplasty, chin and cheek implants. That list doesn’t include non-surgical options like Botox injections, microdermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels.
