This article really was confusing me until I saw the pictures... silly me

Well, obviously every person is different, but many individuals do have jaw angles that change dramatically with age.

That's interesting to know. It's amazing to think about how much our body's shapes change over the years. So I guess jaw rejuvenation may be one of the next big anti aging trends!
