The Lower One Third of the Face: The Non-surgical Facelift

Many people have plastic surgery to help keep their youthful appearance and there are many wonderful plastic surgeons and plastic surgery procedures.  However, when it comes to correcting the lower one of the face, plastic surgeons are not able to do this.

The study of facial beauty has shown that the face should be divided into equal thirds. Surgery can reduce wrinkles, fill in voids, plump the lips and other things.  It cannot correct the lower one third of the face.  Correcting the lower one third of the face adds beauty and youthfulness and it can be done non-surgically which is why it is coined the non-surgical facelift.

This is something can be done by neuromuscular dentists in many cases.  The photos below show a few of our cases that corrected these facial issues.  It is important to note that many of these cases were this way due to functional problems that include TMJ or TMD and some developed due to inadequate airway as a child.

Using advanced computerized technology that includes muscle readings (EMGs) and jaw tracking, and 3D imaging to help determine the ideal restorative place to build the teeth up too.  This supports the facial structures in a better or more haromonized position.  In fact, the  final position for restorative care was not based by simply looking at the face, but rather by evaluation and using the evaluation as a guide these cases turned out close to the proportions that beauty defines.
