Plastic Surgery Aging Studies


Darrick E. Antell, MD is world renowned for his research of identical twins. The inspiration for his study came when a patient asked: “how long will my facelift last?”. Dr. Antell replied that the proper answer to her question would be forever, but prefaced that if she had an identical twin who did not have a facelift, she’d always look younger than her twin. Although both of them would continue to age, the twin without the facelift will be visibly older.*  For more information & to watch videos click here.

Dr. Antell began to ponder what different lifestyle choices would do to each twin’s skin. If neither twin had a facelift, but one lived a healthier lifestyle, would they age differently? Sun exposure, smoking, alcohol consumption and deep emotional stress were factors in the Dr. Antell’s world renowned twin study. How did these factors affect aging skin? Dr. Antell’s results from this study became world famous.
