The face is probably the most visible feature and the part of the body through which expression of feelings are conveyed to the outside world. The aging process, however, may impact those expressions significantly: sagging of facial tissues, skin wrinkles, droopy eyelids, loss of facial volume all can have an impact of how the outside world see us and how we look at ourselves. Sagging of facial tissues and wrinkling of the skin which may be due to a variety of causes such as heredity, sun damage, weight loss and gravity through the years, can have a negative impact on someone’s outlook towards life and his or her ability to interact positively with other people. Many people nowadays are physiologically a lot younger than their chronological age due to better health awareness, cessation of smoking, exercise and healthier nutrition. Life expectancy is also longer and many of these individuals have to live a long time under the gravitational forces of aging, the exposure to unfiltered ultraviolet sun rays and the stresses of everyday life.

Facial rejuvenation provides a reversal of this process by several years or sets the clock back and gives them a fresh and positive outlook on the future. Facial rejuvenation addresses the issues of wrinkles and sagging by a variety of face lifting techniques in conjunction with the addition of fillers to restore loss of volume and the relaxation of hyperactive muscles that cause wrinkling. Removal of excess fat in some areas i.e. the neck or eyelids and alteration of the facial skeleton can restore firmness and more youthful appearance. This indirectly has a very positive impact on how people feel about themselves and complements their energetic physiological well being. It can have an enormous impact on their social and professional lives.
