There’s no denying that full cheeks are a symbol of youth. As you get older, however, you may notice that your cheeks give off a deflated look and appear flatter than they did in your younger years. Rest assured this is completely normal. The natural process of aging almost always leads to facial volume loss that can give you an aged, tired appearance.
When you’re young, the fat on your face is evenly distributed with a few pockets that plump up your forehead, cheeks, and areas around your eyes and mouth. Age causes the fat to lose volume, clump up, and shift downward. So features like your cheeks that used to be full may sink and the skin that was smooth may begin to loosen and sag.
Even if you have great genes, stay out of the sun, and take care of your skin, you may still experience this volume loss.
