Theory of facial aging gets a facelift from UT Southwestern researchers

viewing facial anatomy. It not only tells us how we age, it shows us why we age the way we do, and why every part of the face, from the eyelids to the cheeks, ages differently, said Dr. Rod Rohrich, chairman of plastic surgery and senior author of the study. This will help plastic surgeons around the world not only understand how we can better rejuvenate the face, but how people age as a physiological process.

This breakthrough could have tremendous implications in helping plastic surgeons target facial trouble areas and use injectible fillers to add volume to individual sections of the face. It could also aid in developing new and improved cosmetic and reconstructive surgery techniques, Dr. Rohrich said.

Understanding how fat is compartmentalized will allow us to be very accurate and precise in how we approach facial rejuvenation, Dr. Pessa said. This gives us an algorithm, or scientific approach, to help ascertain what areas of the face may need extra fat to combat the aging process. It also is a major breakthrough in facial anatomy that will have major implications for future studies on aging and possibly hold clues to the study of other diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cancer.
