As individuals age, their bodies gradually stop producing the proteins collagen and elastin. These proteins are essential for healthy, elastic skin. Without a sufficient amount of collagen and elastin, the skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag. In addition, over time, fat becomes displaced and muscle tone is lost. These factors can lead to visible signs of aging on the face, including wrinkles, creases, folds, drooping eyelids, a hanging brow line, skin that hangs off the jaw or neckline and hollow-looking areas.Although this may sound bleak, the good news is that the board-certified New Jersey plastic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Group can help.
