The mouth is naturally an area for which treatment is often requested, whether it is a lack of volume, lips that are too thin, or perioral wrinkles (also called « barcode »). Requests for treating the nasolabial folds in men and women are common due to the grumpy appearance they can yield.
People complain less about their ears, but protruding ears are embarrassing for both adults and children.
The chin is a recurring theme in aesthetic medicine or surgery. The chin may be too far forward or too far back and its position directly affects the quality of the oval of the face. In this regard, requests are generally linked to a loss of the oval of the face, the appearance of jowls and bitterness folds, as well as a loss of the angle with the neck, known as the cervicomental angle.
Around the neck, requests can include sagging skin, the platysmal bands, excess skin, or excess fat making the neck look bloated.
Too saggy, too small, too big, asymmetric, or tuberous, the breasts are a very common complaint, even in men for whom the chest can be a major cause of insecurity. In women, a neckline that is wrinkled or too thin is a recurrent request in aesthetics.
Concerning the silhouette, the area around the waist is a target in both men and women, and requests to improve the abdominal wall (belly) and the love handles are numerous whatever the gender.
Regarding the limbs, requests for improvement can involve the arms that are sagging or too fat but more generally the lower limbs: the thighs, saddlebags, knees, calves, and ankles.
The neck and oval of the face
A clearly defined oval of the face and a toned neck give an immediate impression of vitality and youthfulness.
The appearance of jowls is the first sign of age-related sagging. The face becomes squarer losing its oval shape.
The mouth and smile
Major assets for communication and seduction, numerous aesthetic treatments are available for the mouth and perioral region.
The mouth can sometimes be too small, too thin, lopsided, or with poorly defined contours.
The eyes tell us so much more than we would like, whether it is signs of tiredness or aging. Bags, dark circles, or wrinkled skin make you look tired, whereas sagging eyelids, loss of eyebrows, and sunken eyes are signs of aging.
