Liquid Facelift

Hi and thank you for sharing your question here! You seem to be a very good candidate for liquid facelift, which involves lifting saggy skin and facial features using volume restoration with fillers and other non-surgical treatments. As we age and from the early adulthood, we lose volume slowly and gradually throughout the face and this generalized volume loss causes our skin to lose the underlying support, getting deflated and sagging down. As a result we see mid face emptiness and deflation alongside with lower face heaviness (or as commonly said, the “triangle of youth” turns upside-down and changes to the “pyramid of aging”). We can restore the volume back and lift up the skin in various key areas of the face. Fortunately there are several FDA-approved fillers available and each have their unique characteristics that make them more suitable for specific parts of the face to achieve natural-looking results in experienced hands. Simply put, there is no substitute for dermal fillers and their effect in volume restoration. This is really an art as much as it is practicing medicine, so please make sure to see a well experienced physician with an artistic eye in the field. I hope it helps and good luck!
