Case Details

Surgeon: Achih H. Chen, MD, FACS

Bothered by her nasolabial folds or the "parentheses" around her mouth (the folds running from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth), this 64 year old woman consulted with Augusta and Evans, GA area Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Achih H. Chen. She was counseled by Dr. Chen that the nasolabial fold is a normal structure present in even very young faces. With age, the nasolabial fold seems to deepen, but this is really caused by loss of volume of the mid-face or cheek region and subsequent sagging, much like what happens when a balloon loses air. The most natural appearing rejuvenation of the mid-face region is by restoring the loss volume. This is different from conventional thought where a lifting and tightening procedure such as the mid-facelift is used to attempt to restore a youthful mid-face as this results in widening and flattening of the mid-face, an unnatural appearance. To rejuvenate her mid-face region, this patient underwent volume restoration with a technique, the Total VolumeLift by Dr. Chen. In addition, she also underwent an updated deep plane facelift technique, the Total Lift. Her procedures were performed by Dr. Chen at the Georgia Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, also serving Aiken, SC.
