Lost volume on the face
It is not uncommon that when we loose weight we lose volume in our face, making it appear to look “saggy.” The reason for that is due to the loss of fat within the facial fat pads, which hold up our skin, making the face appear more voluptuous and youthful. It is also common to have natural asymmetry in every individual face. One side of the face may appear more/less full due to variables such as which side you sleep on. Regardless, volume can be restored with the use of dermal fillers such as Juvederm Voluma. I would suggest using this product in both of your cheeks to restore volume, decrease those “laugh lines” (aka nasolabial folds), and decrease the appearance of sagging skin.
The two sides of the face are commonly asymmetric. When there is a mid-face asymmetry, it can be improved using a filler such as Voluma, Restylane Lyft, Radiesse, or Sculptra. I recommend you see an experienced injector for an in-person evaluation.

People begin to lose volume on their face as they age due to changes in elasticity, collagen and fat pads. You are at an age where this should not be happening in most people. If you have lost a significant amount of weight you will see it in your face. Also, sun damage will start to change your skin texture. Further, medical conditions can also be a cause of changes in the skin. I would suggest that you discuss this with your primary care physician first and begin a good skin care regimen of cleansing, moisturizing followed by regular sunscreen use. The sunscreen should have zinc and titanium. If you do not have any other reasons for this loss of volume then I would consider a product like Juvederm.
