Abstract

Although faces age in different ways and at different rates, certain characteristics of facial aging are always present. Certain specific anatomic features of the Asian face often dictate the rate and manner of facial aging. This article focuses on surgical techniques designed to rejuvenate the lower face. Increased fibroplasia often associated with wound healing requires meticulous surgical execution and minimal wound tension to create optimal cutaneous scars. Anatomic variants must be recognized to customize surgical procedures. Often complete tissue release of surgical planes is required before fixation and closure. Performed properly, rejuvenation procedures can create a long-lasting, natural appearance.
