What is facial volume loss and sagging skin?
Facial volume loss and sagging skin are common signs of aging that affect the face. Over time, the skin loses elasticity and firmness, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Facial volume loss occurs when the fat and other tissues that give the face its youthful fullness begin to diminish, resulting in a sunken and hollow appearance. The natural production of collagen and elastin in the skin slows down as we age, leading to a loss of skin firmness and elasticity. The underlying support structures that hold the skin in place, such as muscle and fat, also begin to weaken, causing the skin to sag and droop.
What causes it?
Facial volume loss and sagging skin are primarily caused by the natural aging process, which leads to a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Other factors that contribute to facial volume loss and sagging skin include sun damage, genetics, lifestyle factors such as smoking, and weight loss. Over time, the underlying support structures that hold the skin in place, such as muscle and fat, also begin to weaken, causing the skin to sag and droop. These factors can lead to a loss of facial fullness and a tired, aged appearance.
How can it be treated?
At Deemesh Oudit Plastic Surgery, we offer a range of surgeries to address facial aging, including facelifts, which involve lifting and tightening the skin to restore a more youthful appearance. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can be used to remove excess skin and fat from the eyelids, while a brow lift can raise sagging eyebrows and smooth out forehead wrinkles. In some cases, a neck lift may be recommended to tighten loose skin and remove excess fat from the neck and jawline. These procedures can provide long-lasting results and can help to restore a more youthful, refreshed appearance to the face. Our experienced plastic surgeons specialize in facial plastic surgery and use the latest techniques and technologies to achieve natural-looking and long-lasting results. We will evaluate your needs and goals, discuss treatment options, customize the treatment plan to ensure the best possible outcome for your surgery.
