Abstract

Greater life expectancy with advancements in technology and medicine has led to an increasing interest in facial rejuvenation. Facial aging is an inevitable process that largely results from soft tissue descent and volumetric deflation. However, a comprehensive knowledge of the aging process and precise assessment of the exact pathologies yielding the patient's senescent appearance is essential to produce the best cosmetic outcome. The surgeon must evaluate each region independently and the aging face as a whole to ensure a pleasing, natural appearance.
