Nasal labial folds
Thank you for your question and photo. Based on the photo you would be a good candidate for fillers in the nasal labial folds and possibly Voluma in your cheeks. Voluma in your cheeks will you give your more volume in your upper face and will help with your nasal labial folds. I personally like HA (hyaluronic acid) fillers. Juvederm would work great and is a wonderful product to start off with. The good thing about HA fillers is results are instant and reversible if you do not like them. Its best that you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon or expert injector to find you treatment plan. Best of luck

Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, women look the most feminine, youthful and attractive with heart shaped faces. Heart shaped faces have cheeks that are full and round in the front. Cheek augmentation using a dermal filler (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or with cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks anteriorly that will feminize the entire face. I would combine facil liposuction for further definition and shaping of the cheeks.
When the chin is weak, this creates an imbalance that makes the nose appear larger, the lower face short and the mid face appear top heavy. Chin augmentation, using a chin implant, will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. I have found placing a silastic chin implant through a small, curved, incisions under the chin to be very safe, quick, highly effective and far less invasive than a sliding genioplasty that requires bone cuts with placement of screws and metal plates.
Jowls are sagging facial tissues and an indication for some form of a facelift. The underlying SMAS layer, of the face, must be dissected, lifted, trimmed and re-sutured. The excess skin is then removed and the facelift incisions closed.
My most popular facelift is the minimally invasive, short incision facelift that has all the benefits of more invasive facelifts (traditional, mid-face, deep plane and subperiosteal facelifts) but with these added benefits:
•very small incisions
•minimal tissue dissection = less bruising and swelling = rapid recovery
•can be performed in 90 minutes or less, with or without anesthesia
•no incisions within the hair = no hair loss
•excess fat can be removed
•excess skin removed
•cheeks, chin and jaw line can be augmented with dermal fillers (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or facial implants
•most patients fly back home to parts all over the world in as little as 3 days post-op
Hope this helps.
Juvederm for Laugh Lines
Juvederm would be the perfect product item to inject into the nasolabial lines. You could also benefit from Juvederm Voluma to give added volume to the mid-face and decrease the nasolabial folds more. Best, Dr. Green
Juvederm is a good place to start
Filler choice for laugh lines
Freestyle filling is important - this is the term I use to fill areas that give you the best outcome. Sometimes filling in laugh lines is not the optimal look, always address WHERE the problem originates from, threat that area, and the look with be natural. Looking natural never goes out of fashion.
All the best,
