The theory that aging is sagging skin is naïve. The fact is, the facial skin not only sags with time, but facial fat deflates, much like a balloon with a pinhole deflates. This deflation causes the skin to sag because as we get older, the elasticity of the skin, which was excellent when we were younger, is less as we get older. So, traditionally, having not recognized the role of deflation, we’ve done facelifts that pull the loose skin. Sometimes this looks good, sometimes it looks stretched and unnatural. Two solutions to this problem are Sculptra and Fat injections.
