As our face ages, a lot of the wrinkling and sagging of the skin can be due to a combination of skin laxity as well as loss of facial volumes. Facial volumes are inevitably lost as we age, and those can be losses in terms of fat content as well as bone density (zygomatic bones).

In some cases, this can be responsible for a hollow appearance of the face as well as sagging of skin and soft tissue at the level of the mandible (jowls).

Restoring those lost volumes will give a more plump and youthful appearance of the face and will also lift and restore the position of any sagging skin.
