Why Does the Face Look Sunken Over Time?

Home/Blog / Why Does the Face Look Sunken Over Time?

Youthful facial characteristics are often indicated by a well-defined facial structure and voluminous features. When patients are young, their facial shape typically resembles an inverted triangle with fat and volume primarily residing in the cheeks. Unfortunately, there are several reasons why the face may begin to look flat or aged, including:

If you’re seeking more long-term results in facial rejuvenation, fat transfer to the face can be extremely effective in repurposing fat from another part of the body to restore lost volume in the face. This provides a more natural facial filler than cosmetic injectables and results typically last longer than dermal fillers. That said, individuals who prefer a non-surgical, less invasive solution than fat transfer can still achieve excellent rejuvenation with JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Sculptra® Aesthetic. While temporary, dermal fillers can enhance the cheeks, temples, forehead, and other sunken areas with no recovery period or downtime.
