The Aging Process

The youthful face is characterized by the Ogee Curve, a double S-curve that hugs the lateral brow fullness and tapers into the lateral canthi, followed by an outward projection at the cheekbones and again narrowing into the chin and lower face.

As we age, we experience a gradual descent and loss of elasticity of the skin and soft tissues. The inverted triangle flips its base, as our faces become more square and less triangular. Skin and soft tissues gather in the lower face, and we simultaneously lose volume in our upper and mid-face regions. These changes collectively lead to a sunken, aged look. Although we cannot stop the process of aging, we can set the clock back several years and restore youthful features through both traditional surgical approaches and non-invasive cosmetic augmentation.
