Study shows cosmetic surgery takes off 6-8 years

Most middle-aged people who get face-lifts and other cosmetic surgery do so because they want to look younger. But since youth is partly in the eye of the beholder, it’s difficult to measure whether a procedure successfully turns back the clock, and by how much.

In a new study, a team of plastic surgeons set out to pin down exactly how many years a person can expect to shed under the scalpel. The surgeons asked medical students to estimate the ages of patients in before-and-after pictures, and the results suggest that facial surgery reduces a person’s outward age by about six to eight years, depending on the extent of the procedure.

Tanning salons - they're lying about health risks

ABC World News with Diane Sawyer featured a story about an investigative report by the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee. Investigators found that 90% of the salons contacted said that indoor tanning did not pose health risks, and more than half the salons denied that the fake sun increased risk of cancer. To see the ABC TV story, click here.

Medical research has found that indoor tanning is a cause of skin cancer, including melanoma, the deadliest form of the disease. The World Health Organization grades indoor tanning beds as a Group 1 carcinogen. Other Group 1 substances include tobacco smoke and arsenic.
