After the age of 30, the skin begins to get thinner and losses of fat tissue occur in the cheeks. Such losses lead to sags and collapses in the face. Cheek filling is used to eliminate the collapses in the cheekbones, caused by advancing age and weight loss, and to proportionally accentuate the cheeks. This procedure adds clarity and beauty to the facial expression. Natural and clear beauty is an important element of the aesthetic appearance of the cheeks.
