My Thoughts on Facial Rejuvenation Surgery
This week I have been doing a bit of reading and thinking about aesthetic surgery of the face. By ‘face’ I mean the skin and underlying fat and muscles of the face and neck, but I am not really talking about the eyelids, the nose or the mouth as such because these areas have very particular anatomical features and require a discussion of their own. The tissues of the face consist of skin, fat, muscle and the underlying bone, and all four of these structures give the face its overall shape. Furthermore, all four of these tissues change with age and contribute to the changing facial appearance.
