Cosmetic Surgeon Darrick Antell's Plastic Surgery Study

Dr. Antell visits his groundbreaking research at the Smithsonian.

Dr. Antell’s landmark study of identical twins and the aging process is displayed at the Smithsonian’s Museum of Natural History as part of the Human Genome exhibit. His work is shown alongside that of Dr. James Watson and Dr. Francis Crick who discovered the structure of the DNA double helix.

Dr. Antell’s research on twins has shown that “nature is highly overrated.” Environmental factors and lifestyle choices have a significant effect on how we age. Through his research, Dr. Antell has identified three factors - smoking, sun, and stress – that may even have a larger impact on aging than genetics.

Dr. Antell’s entire staff is exceedingly proud of this accomplishment. Dr. Antell is one of the only Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons to have his work displayed in the prestigious Smithsonian Museum.

Darrick E. Antell, MD is world renowned for his research of identical twins.

The inspiration for Dr. Antell's 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.

With this analogy in mind, Dr. Antell started to study the effects of sun, smoking and stress on identical twins.  If one twin maintained a healthier lifestyle, would that alone keep them more youthful in appearance than the other?  The results became world famous.  Dr. Antell’s photos of identical twins have further proven how important it is to protect your skin from the sun and not smoke cigarettes.
