Part of the process of aging is loss of volume in our faces. Volume is lost in the skin, muscles, connective tissue, and fat in our faces. Even the bones of the face change as we approach the later decades of life. A good analogy is the helium balloons we use for celebrations. They are full and round and float to the ceiling at day’s end, but the next day, they hover above the floor and have partially collapsed, looking like a large raisin. If we re-inflate them, they look brand-new. That is what restoring volume to the face is about. A full face, not overdone, is youthful. A sunken face reveals age.
