What can I do about the protrusions around my mouth? = treating the cause = saggy facial skin #aging #cheekaugmentation
One of the early signs of facial aging is sagging of the facial skin in the lower face. This is usually seen as "protrusions" around the mouth. This physical finding is commonly cause by decrease in cheek bone projection rather than buccal fat pad. Therefore, cheek augmentation with soft tissue fillers like voluma could "lift" the face, thus addressing that lower face skin sagging ("protrusions"). Buccal fat pad, by not addressing the cause, could make the problem worst.
Patients interested in determining if candidates in addressing lower face sagging with cheek filler augmentation should make a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon specialized in procedures of the face
