研究:女儿和妈妈衰老过程相似
Janet, a 50-year-old British mother, paid £10000 for plastic surgery abroad in an attempt to imitate her beautiful daughter and change her disordered life after a divorce. It's like mother, like daughter when it comes to ageing.

 

There may be some truth to the saying that all women will eventually turn into their mothers, with a U.S. study finding daughters age and wrinkle like their mothers.

Plastic surgeons used facial imaging and 3D computer modeling to study the aging process and found that daughters' faces tend to follow their mothers in terms of sagging and volume loss, particularly around the corners of their eyes and lower eyelids.

"Studies of facial aging up to the present have largely been observational and subjective," the team from Loma Linda University Medical Center in California said in a report published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

"This study applies state-of-the-art facial imaging and three-dimensional computer modeling to measure changes in the aging female face."

The study, presented at an ASPS conference in Seattle on the weekend, was based on examining 10 sets of similar looking mother-daughter pairs aged from 15 to 90 to measure changes in the aging female face.

Mothers and daughters have the same skeletal and cellular make up.

Researchers Matthew Camp, Zachary Filip, Wendy Wong and Subhas Gupta, all plastic surgeons in California, found that volume loss in the lower eyelid began when women were aged in their mid-30s and continued to progress steadily through life.

They said these findings may act as a further guideline for cosmetic rejuvenation of the eye region.

Eyelid surgery is one of the most common cosmetic procedures, used to get rid of crows' feet around the eyes and sagging to make the face appear younger.

ASPS figures show that it was the fourth most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States in 2008. 

 


 


 

女人最终都像自己的妈妈,这一说法也许有些道理。美国一项研究表明,女人衰老和长皱纹的过程和自己的母亲差不多。

开展该研究的整形外科医生使用面部成像技术和三维电脑模型研究衰老进程,结果发现,女性面部的皮肤松弛和容积萎缩和她们的母亲相类似,尤其是眼角周围和眼袋部位。

加州洛玛连达大学医学中心的研究小组在由美国整形外科学会发表的研究报告中称:“迄今有关面部衰老的研究大多是观察性的和主观的。”

报告称:“研究应用了最先进的面部成像技术和三维电脑模型,来测算女性面部的衰老过程。”

该研究成果于上周末在西雅图召开的美国整形外科学会研讨会上公布。研究对十对容貌相似,年龄在15岁至90岁之间的母女进行了调查,以测算女性面部的衰老过程。

母亲和女儿拥有相同的骨骼和细胞结构。

研究人员发现,女性自三十五六岁开始,下眼睑开始出现萎缩,并将一直持续下去。参与该研究的马修•坎普、扎克瑞•菲利普、Wendy Wong和苏巴斯•古普塔都是加州的整形外科医生。

他们称,这些研究发现或许可以为眼部的整容修复提供进一步指导。

眼睑整容术是最为常见的整形手术之一,用于消除眼部的鱼尾纹和皮肤松弛,使脸部看上去更加年轻。

美国整形外科学会公布的数据显示,眼部整容是2008年美国第四大最流行的整形外科手术。
