A new TV series is offering an insight into how today's celebrities are likely to look in 50 years' time if they were to age naturally, without the help of cosmetic surgery. Living's Changing Faces uses brand new morphing technology and computerised photo imaging to reveal how famous faces are likely to change over time.Celebrities such as Cheryl Cole, David and Victoria Beckham, Katie Price, Madonna, Kylie Minogue and Sharon Osbourne are being given the digital treatment by renowned age-progression expert Teri Blythe to predict how their faces will change by the time they reach 75, and how they would look without their trademark plastic surgery - with often surprising results. Teri told Unreality TV: "Im a celebritys worst nightmare; I look for the bad features, bags, wrinkles, I highlight them then predict how somebody might look in the future." The show also explores the many changes celebrities have already undergone, from swapping hair colours to having boob jobs. As computer imaging becomes more advanced, cosmetic surgery patients will find the technology increasingly useful to help plan their treatments and enjoy the most effective results. A recent study in the United States also found that women who share facial similarities with their mothers tend to age in similar ways, which can help women further in effectively planning their surgery in areas most likely to be affected by the advancing years.
