There’s no doubt, Esquire magazine’s new Sexiest Woman Alive, Scarlett Johansson, has the facial features society considers beautiful and youthful. But naturally maintaining those features as the face ages and loses volume is rare—maybe nonexistent.
Why? Because as we age, we lose the volume that gives us those cheekbones, plump lips and vibrant eyes.
The good news is we can three-dimensionally re-volumize the face nonsurgically, using natural living fat cells taken from elsewhere on the body, as well as popular hyaluronic fillers. You read that right: fillers do more than smooth lines and plump lips. When used artfully, they can re-volumize the face.
Caution: this rebuilding or re-volumizing of the face requires skill and artistic ability, as well as a thorough understanding of the underlying bone, muscle, fat and skin structures. Doctors and others who inject the fillers and fat without paying enough attention to these details can create misshapen, swollen, unnatural faces.
After all, the goal is to look natural; not ‘done.’
