Relative “excess of skin” around the mount (perioral “bags”
or “mounds”) could be secondary to significant decrease cheek volume (midface).
When the cheeks are “deflated” due to aging or very low body fat” the facial
skin could “sag” around the corners of
the mouth. Restoring the volume of the cheeks may improve significantly this
physical finding. Midface volume can be improved with injectable fillers (e.g.
juvederm, restylane, volume) or autologous fat transfer (e.g. stemcellfacelift).
Patients seeking improvement of “perioral bags” should be evaluated by a board
certified plastic surgeon specialized in facial aesthetic surgery to determine
what procedure could best feed the patient’s specific needs
