Waste of Time: A Survey to Pinpoint the Age When Beauty Fades

When Beauty Fades: Apparently There's a Cut-Off Age for Attractiveness

What the world doesn’t need now is this study by a British plastic surgery practice about the Age of Invisibility. Translation: The age when beauty fades. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva, of the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery in London sponsored a survey of 2,000 people.

Apparently, two-thirds of women say that they stopped getting appreciative glances for their physical appearance around the age of 45. (For men, the magic number seems to be 47). Additionally, almost half of the females said their sexual confidence took a hit as they got older.

So on which level are you most annoyed by this?

  1. On the basis that a surgeon (who says he’s just the messenger) is possibly using these findings to publicize his own youth-boosting procedures?
  2. On the basis that society makes women feel sexless and unattractive when they are younger than Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Lucy Liu, and Naomi Watts?
  3. On the basis that our self-worth is still so tied up in getting a “second glance” in a sexual way?

Sigh. Tell us what you think in the comments. Do you get less attention than you used to? Do you care?
