Loss of Facial Volume

Loss of Facial Volume

Loss of volume in the face is a common factor of ageing. Common causes for facial volume loss are hormonal changes, environmental factors, and extreme fluctuations in diet and exercise.

There are also structural rearrangements going on behind the scenes. When we're young, volume in the face is evenly distributed which plump up the forehead, temples, cheeks, along with areas around the eyes and mouth. With age, we start to lose volume, and the fat pads in our face start to shift downward, so features that were formerly round may sink, and skin that was smooth and tight starts to loosen and sag. Meanwhile, other parts of the face gain fat, particularly the lower half of the face. A loss of facial volume tends to result in sagging skin, a flattening of the cheeks and the appearance of a “turkey neck”. The folds that develop between the nose and the mouth, known as the nasolabial fold, is also linked to sagging skin and a loss of volume.
