Sunken Cheeks

Cheeks are an important part of a person’s face, and play a key role in providing support to upper, mid and lower facial tissue, and also in balancing other facial features. With this in mind it is understandable that loss of volume in the cheeks can have a huge impact on the rest of the face.

When cheeks lose volume, it is usually due to a depletion in the subcutaneous fatty tissue, which provides underlying support to the mid face, along with a deterioration in skin integrity as collagen levels gradually deplete.

Collagen is the protein responsible for keeping our skin firm and plump, so as this naturally decreases, skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag, shifting everything downwards.This in turn contributes to a flat sunken appearance to the mid face and heaviness in the jowl area, often noted with clients feeling that they look unhappy or tired.
