Our cheeks consist of the overlying skin, a superficial and deep fat pads, followed by the muscles and bone. As we age, a phenomenon referred to as ‘midface deflation’ occurs, in which the cumulative aging of all the above layers result in sunken or hollow cheeks.
Extreme Weight Loss / Dieting / Exercising
You may be focusing on other parts e.g. tummy or thigh, but chances are you’d be losing weight from all areas. For some women, stored fat in the hips and thighs may be harder to lose, as the body tends to hold onto that fat and prioritize fat loss from other areas (abdomen, chest, arms or face).
With age, there is increasing deficiency of hyaluronic acid in the skin and it starts to lose its plumpness, firmness and glow. This, together with declining volume in the underlying layers, causes the cheeks to appear sunken.
There are various methods of augmenting the sunken or hollow cheek appearance.
However, the most recognized solution for volume loss is volume restoration with Dermal Fillers.

Dermal fillers are used to plump up sunken skin, reduce wrinkles and lines, minimize scars and to rejuvenate the overall face. They are the treatment of choice for volume restoration and augmentation.
