The aged face: the facial manifestations of aging


Traditionally, cosmetic maxillofacial surgery designed to rejuvenate the aged face has been reserved for the elderly. However, any patient with facial manifestations that reflect, but are not limited to, an increased chronologic age is a candidate for esthetic maxillofacial surgery. In this text, the aged face refers to any facial manifestations that are perceived as indices of advanced age beyond an individual's chronologic or desired age. This paper presents a brief outline of the specific facial features that account for the aged face and describes surgical correction.
