Restoring the volume of youth

Plastic Surgeon Serving Orlando, Winter Park and Nearby Areas of Central Florida

The traditional approach to facial aging was to simply tighten facial skin with procedures such as faclifts and browlifts. However over the last 10-15 years, it has become increasingly accepted that the main component of facial aging is the loss of facial volume, particularly in the emples and around the eyes, and also in the cheeks, jaws and around the mouth. In fact, it can be shown that as we age, all areas of the face lose volume. At the Bougainvillea Clinique we have been educating our patients about this, and rejuvenating their facial appearance by restoring this volume of youth, for 20 years. Dr. Hartog is an early pioneer in the use of fat grafting to restore facial volume, and his background in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, as well as plastic surgery, makes him ideally suited to evaluate and treate facial aging. At the Bougainvillea Clinique we offer numerous approaches to treat facial aging including fat transfer, and injectibles such as Allofil, Voluma, Juvederm, Sculptra and Radiesse. There is an excellent short article from a photography website that clearly demonstrates this volume loss in models photographed 14 years apart.
