Hello. I would have recommended Radiesse or Sculptra in this lower face area. The hyaluronic acid fillers like Belotero and Restylane do not have the longevity in this area or the volumizing effect. I cannot tell well from your photo, but the lower lateral face (and jaw line) can also be injected with Sculptra or Radiesse to help soften the marionette lines and soften jowls. I would have used the Belotero in the lips and fine lines around the mouth only. Thank you for your question. Best, Andrea Dempsey MD
I went to a doctor for my lower face and had 5 injections of restylane lyft, 1 of silk and 1 bolotero. What happened? (photo)

Lower face filler
Hi Ann, could you please post a couple more pictures, including your before pictures? Usually adding filler to the lower face for people who are very thin and have a lot of skin laxity is not great. If you want a non-surgical option I would recommend Sculptra.
Facelift Better for Sagging Skin ; Alternatives are Thermage/Ultherapy, ThermiRF, CO2 Laser Resurfacing, Intensif RF
like your skin is very lax and therefore will not do well with a
liquid facelift. you may need skin tightening procedures, lasers, or a neck/face lift. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.

Based upon the one posted photo, you were not a candidate for a Liquid FaceLift! Appears you need Full open surgical face/neck lift in my over the internet opinion..
