The demand for facial plastic surgery has increased dramatically in recent years as persons from all socioeconomic levels and age groups have become interested in facial rejuvenation. As the population ages, the demand for esthetic surgery in the elderly will increase at an even greater rate. Before the surgeon begins to learn specific techniques in facial plastic surgery, he or she should have a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the aging face. Safe and effective esthetic surgery is possible only when the anatomic changes associated with the aging face are appreciated by the surgeon and patient.
