Ageing of the face is one of the most apparent. Face varies in shape and aspect. The reasons of these modifications are various: skin ageing, lost of teeth, changes in facial skeleton and modifications of the whole facial soft tissues.

Soft tissues evolution in mentalis and anterior nasal spin regions was studied on a 206, 21 to 101 years old subjects population.
