EXPERT Q&A

Q: How do I fix hollow cheeks?

What our experts say:

Honestly, this is not a common problem, but can occur when someone is underweight or is quite fastidious with their exercise regime and they burn fat off in their face. If that is what they are complaining about, then we usually restore volume that has been lost in that area using a non-surgical procedure. I would turn more toward addressing the issue with fillers. They can do a great job but with hollow cheeks, it can be tough because we have to use a lot more which can cause lumps, bumps, and lines. One type of filler, Sculptra, works better for this area because we can restore more of the whole area and not just a line, and it tends to last longer, up to two years. Another way to fill this area is to use a micro-fat transfer procedure where we are using the patient's own fat.
