I have previously had fat injections in my cheeks and now that I am in my early 50s my jowls and cheeks look puffy and bulbous.

SmartLipo laser liposuction versus lower facelift are possible options for jowling.
Treatment of cheeks after fat injections
While plastic surgeons can turn back the hand of time, they can't stop the clock for moving forward. After fat injections, non-surgical options are available for patients who aren't ready for a face lift. Some plastic surgeons utilize devices such as Thermage or Ulthera to tighten skin without surgery. Results develop gradually and usually require multiple treatments for desired effect. Other options to consider are office injections with fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra, etc. However, keep in mind that cosmetic surgery with a cheek lift or face lift may still be the best option for you. Only after a comprehensive evaluation can a plastic surgeon help determine appropriate options for you.
