according to the american society of plastic surgeons 15.11 million cosmetic surgery procedures are performed each year. >> we know that that can result in a more youthful appearance but now there is some proof it can also maybe, make you perceived as more likable. >> here to explain the results -- fascinating -- of that study, dr. michael riley, assistant professor of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at georgetown university
10:40 am
medical center. welcome to you. >> thank you very much. >> you've had some nice work done. you look darn good. >> not giving away any of my secrets. >> first you did this study yourself. right? what prompted you to do this first of all? >> well the main reason i did this was because i wanted to find out why people were having the results they were having after plastic surgery. a lot of it is good but as we all know we've seen people out on the street who just don't look that great. >> they've ruined their looks actually. >> we as plastic surgeons don't even have ways to measure those bad results or ways to discuss it. i wanted to devise a study that would allow us to assess greater changes that happen to people after plastic surgery. >> these results surprised us. >> you used just white women to control the study. >> i did. it was 30 white women operated by myself and steven davidson one of my colleagues. we had the patients assessed for a bunch of character traits. not just femininity but
10:41 am
attractiveness. likability femininity social schools, are they trust worthily. this was based on studies done in behavioral science literature that prove we judge these traits about patients all the time. >> look at before and after photos. two women who had facial plastic surgery. donna in her 50s. so after her surgery she was viewed as more likable. >> this particular patient -- yes. this is donna. she had an upper and lower eyelid surgery. she was perceived as more likable and more extroverted after surgery. in addition to being more feminine pandand attractive. this is not a radical change. she had the bags taken from under her eyes. >> she still has -- she changed her hair. i think that's the biggest thing. >> the hair is better. she had some skin removed from her upper eyelids basically making her eyes appear a lit more wider, a little more youthful. more likable. >> is she happy with the results?
10:42 am
>> she is fabulous. she actually talked about how much of a change this has made just for her daily life. >> next in her 60s barbara. >> barb had a lower eyelid lift and a facelift. in this particular example she -- as you can see, her eyes look a little bit wider but i think the biggest thing that happened to barb her cheek looks smoother. the area around the mouth and eye is where you can tell if someone looks more likable because they don't have the sired tired, sagginess. the jowls, as we age we look like angry face. >> yeah! because by then you are angry! a lot of stuff's happened. >> don't tell me. >> now when someone walks in oto your office and say they think they need plastic surgery, do you ever say, you don't need it? >> absolutely. i do reconstruct you have
10:43 am
surgery for cancer patients but i want to make sure what i do cosmetic surgery i do something good for the patient. that's what the study was about, what are we doing beyond just pulling the skin tighter? are we really helping someone out by making their jowls go away and what impact does that have on them down the road for the rest of their lives? >> do you see patients who come to you for reconstructive from bad surgeries from before? >> yes. we do. >> that's the biggest risk. people may hate what they've done to themselves. >> you are a delight. >> thanks so much. still to come, five lucky fans will win an amazing prize when we give it away. and what's it like to live in the arctic? listen to this -- in below zero temperatures. and alone. >> we're going to gipdfind out right after this. you've got some work to do! if you need me, i'll be cleaning the gutters. today, the house won't know what hit it. show the garage who's boss. check. put a new shine on the family wheels. check. tame the jungle you call a yard. check.
