How the Evolution of Your Bone Structure Affects Your Facelift
The latest research has shown that our faces age on multiple levels, extending all the way down to our bone structure. As we go through life, this underlying framework progressively remodels, though changes may seem only skin-deep to us. The truth is that with age, the skeletal eye area enlarges and begins to elongate, while the cheekbones become less defined and the jaw line recedes.
Have you ever seen someone who looked simply amazing for their age. If you examine more closely, the likely reason is that they have amazing facial bone structure. Think Sophia Lauren, Helen Mirren, Raquel Welch. They have maintained excellent bone structure, amazing cheek bones and beautiful jawlines. Clearly, the facial bone structure is crucial to support your underlying soft tissue in order to maintain a vibrant appearance.
In order to effectively address your age-related facial concerns, and help you achieve beautiful, natural-looking results, Dr. W. Matthew White utilizes a foundational approach to facelift surgery. During your facelift consultation, Dr. White will thoroughly examine your face, studying how your bone structure has evolved over time. With this information, he can better understand how your bone structure will support the redraping of your soft tissue that will occur during surgery. If he were to simply stretch the skin across this framework without prior knowledge of your underlying structure, you may wind up with an unnatural appearance.
By understanding how your face has matured over your lifetime, Dr. White can use your current evolved bone structure as the underlying platform for extraordinarily natural-looking beauty.
