Scientists from the University of Pennsylvania found that having a well-healed scar on the face makes a person more friendly. However, some scars, such as the vertical one in the middle of the lower eyelid, can cause a decrease in perceived attractiveness. there was work published In Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

The study’s authors selected images of 50 faces with a neutral expression. The researchers then added scars on the forehead, lower eyelid, cheek, and upper lip to the faces in the photographs. Approximately 1.8 thousand volunteers also participated in the study, rating the attractiveness, trustworthiness and sincerity of the scarred and scarred faces in the photo.

Apparently, there was no difference in assessments of attractiveness and trust. However, injured faces were rated as friendlier, on average, than those without scars. The results also showed that faces with cut marks on their foreheads were rated as safer and friendlier. If the scar was perpendicular to the lower eyelid, the person was considered less attractive.
