The loss of youthful contours in the face can be due to variety of factors, including thinning of the skin, loss of facial fat, gravity, sun damage, smoking, as well as heredity and stress. These factors cause aging changes in face like wrinkles, tear troughs, jawls, neck folds, deep nasolabial folds etc. These aging changes can be corrected by face and necklift.
