Contour deformities can be improved with fillers

Dermal fillers are a reliable way to improve contour deformities.  If an area is flat or irregular fillers can improve this.  The hyaluronic acid fillers are very popular choice with patients. The results are good and with the non permanent fillers, if you are not happy the filler will resorb.

flatness from any site of your face  may be easeallly corrected with your own fat and plastma transplantation with better results and lasting in an healthier and organic way than utilizing another fillers  like  hialuronic or collagen because these products are from animal origin or synthetic and do not last

Flat upper lip and cheeks

The most common procedure to improve facial contour for a flat lip and cheeks is injection of filler materials. Fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm can be injected in these areas with or without local anesthesia in the office in minutes, and last for 6-12 months. Other options include fat grafts and cheek implants. Cheek implants can provide long term improvement of the cheek contour. I recommend that you visit your local plastic surgeon for a consultation to discuss your options. Good luck!
