Hollowed cheeks are a popular look among celebrities and models. It is believed that this chiseled look reflects the health and beauty of a person as well as their lifestyle choices. People who have prominent cheekbones and hollow cheeks also often have a lower body fat percentage. However, it is important to note that this can also be genetically determined, so not everyone will achieve this look, even if they are at a healthy weight. This is because the shape of your cheekbones and facial bones are largely determined by bone structure, while the amount of fat in the face is primarily determined by body fat percentage.
To achieve a more hollow appearance, you can try losing body fat or exercising your jaw muscles to strengthen them. It is also possible to remove the buccal fat pads through surgery, which may give you a more hollow look. This procedure is called buccal fat removal and is performed in a hospital setting under local anesthesia. However, the fat pads decrease with age, so it is important to speak to a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist about this option before proceeding.
Another option is to use dermal fillers, such as Juvederm or Sculptra. It is essential to choose a quality product that contains hyaluronic acid, as this material is more natural and will last longer than other types of fillers. Some patients prefer the more permanent option of face fat grafting or cheek implants, but this will require a visit to a plastic surgeon.
