As people grow older, the natural aging process, genetic influences, exposure to the sun and weakening of facial ligaments cause the face to wrinkle and sag. In the younger individual, the face is firm and smooth due to more robust bone structure, more fatty tissue directly beneath the skin and better, more youthful skin elasticity. As an individual ages, the skin and underlying tissues lose elasticity and fatty tissue deposits slip downward due to gravity and weakening of facial ligaments, and the facial bones actually shrink. Skin folds become more prominent, particularly around the chin, on the jaw line and on the neck. Our Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas may be the best option.
