Would I be a good candidate for fillers? What would you recommend?

Would I be a good candidate for fillers? What would you recommend? What are some things I can do at home to reduce them? I have these fine lines around my mouth, I think it's from both of my pregnancies and losing the weight from my face way too fast. (My face swells very bad when I'm pregnant) I'm only 25 so this is something that is very bothersome to me.

The lines that are prominent on your photos are from the attachment of muscles. they cannot be eliminated, but can be improved with a filler. If you have truly lost volume, then a filler like Juvederm Voluma may restore what you have lost. From your pictures, however, it appears that what would benefit you the most is good skin care to eliminate the pigmentary abnormalities. This should also include good UVA sun protection. If you add Retin-A, you will be constantly building collagen to keep this line from getting any worse and, hopefully, also improving it. The best skin care system to do all this, bar none, lis the Obagi Nu-Derm System. See a plastic surgeon or dermatologist with significant experience in skin care and fillers.

 From the attached photos, the cheeks are flat anteriorly (in the front) creating an oval shaped face. 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.

Hope this helps.
