University of Rochester researchers have found that facial bones erode as people age. CT scans showed older people had receding chins, shorter jaws, and sunken cheekbones and eye sockets compared to younger people.

"But in order for us to give a patient the best bang for the buck, we should also think about augmenting bones."
