Age is the most significant factor contributing to the overall change in the appearance of an individual's facial features over time. This gradual process of structural weakening of the face begins during the third decade and continues to worsen during the remainder of an individual's lifetime. In this article we discuss how the approach to midface rejuvenation has evolved over time owing to our increased understanding of the aging process. In addition, we discuss specific techniques that we employ that have helped us achieve more natural and lasting results.
