Ageing Face Surgery

Well-balanced facial features are promoted by facial structures with defined contours that balance from the forehead through the chin and into the neck. If any of these are deficient or misaligned, it can lead to the appearance of premature ageing with skin collecting or sagging in certain areas.

For instance, up to 15% of people have a mismatch between their upper and lower jaws which can promote facial creasing, a double or receding chin and bite problems.

Research has shown that the jaw bone can change significantly, in both angle and length during the ageing process, causing the skin to have less support across the lower part of the face as we get older. This has a major impact on appearance and can be the cause of premature ageing as much as skin that has lost its elasticity.

Our faces are asymmetrical so differences between both sides are common but sometimes these are exaggerated by genetics or growth abnormalities that can heighten the appearance of ageing. This can lead to a lack of self-esteem but corrective structural surgery is a trusted discipline to rejuvenate the face.

Enhancing the jaw line can provide improved ‘scaffolding’ for the skin to be toned and reduce the appearance of a double chin.

The procedure is conducted inside the mouth – or with a small incision under the chin – with customized implants used to augment the contours of the jawline.

Other bones and structures can be reshaped to give the skin improved contours to cling to and reduce the risk of it creasing in areas with little support.
