Abstract

The aged appearance of the face is not exclusively ascertained through intrinsic biological and visual cutaneous changes. In analyzing a face, we should first consider the characteristic cutaneous signs of aging such as wrinkles, tissue laxity, pigmentation abnormalities and solar elastosis. However, evidence suggests that the structural features of the facial skeleton should bear more weigh in the overall assessment of the face. In addition to cutaneous signs of aging, there are some important factors determining the aged appearance of the face. These include sunken orbits, depression of the para-nasal region, a reduced naso-labial angle, thinning and retropositioning of the lips, accentuation of the labio-mental angle and a reduction of the facial verticality and of the gonial angle. We described the case of a 29 year-old woman who, due to her skeletal-facial morphology exhibited an excessively old facial appearance.
