Ageing in humans refers to a multidimensional process of physical, psychological, and social change. These changes are interpreted and accepted in different ways for every different human. The face is the most distinguished part of the human body and is the conveyor of the effects of ageing to the observer. Accepting the new look of ageing differs from individual to individual and the longing of the ageing person to return to a younger place is what propels facial rejuvenation surgery. As the baby boomers age the demand for the naturally young face continues to increase and surgeons continue to strive to produce this look and previously accepted surgeries are changing everyday.
To be able to produce the natural facial ideal of youth the facial plastic surgeon must have op-timal knowledge of facial anatomy and the effects of ageing on the face.
