For many years, facial rejuvenation was limited to skin resurfacing with lasers and peels,
and various surgical soft tissue repositioning procedures. However, our options have

and the evolution of our knowledge of how fat atrophy in the face leads to stereotypical
architectural changes with aging. Plastic surgeons can now add volume to refresh the face.

of muscle balancing, skin resurfacing and tightening, as well as volume restoration.
Ultimately, when the battle of gravity versus skin plays out over time,
surgical repositioning is required.
