Aging is a gradual process in which vertical prolapse, bone and fat loss, and surface changes of the skin play a major role. It results, to a greater or lesser extent, in wrinkles, deep folds, and shadows. Additionally, the jawline often becomes less defined, loose skin develops under the chin and in the neck, and cheeks and lips lose their fullness. There are several treatments that can have an impact on this process.

Sometimes young patients (< 40) also complain about the lack of contour of their chin and jawline. In some cases, this is caused by being overweight and the best advice is to lose a few pounds. More often, however, there is a predisposition and specific anatomical structure that gives rise to the problem.
Forehead wrinkles, the position of the eyebrows, and excess skin of the upper eyelids are all signs of the same aging process. Vertical prolapse of the eyebrows, loss of fat around the eye socket, overactivity of the forehead muscles, and thinning of the skin are partly responsible for drooping eyelids.
