“The face is like a fine couch: The muscles of the face are the equivalent of the frame. Without a strong frame, the face has no support. The filler is the equivalent of the pillow’s stuffing. And even if the frame is strong, and the face is recontoured, if the skin is dull and sun damaged, you still have an old couch. Rejuvenation is three-dimensional.”
