Facial Lipoatrophy

In La Jolla

By Nasrin Mani, M.D.

The definition for lipoatrophy is simply localized loss of fat tissue. We all depend on the natural fat beneath the skin to keep our features from appearing too gaunt or angular. Facial lipoatrophy in the cosmetic sense means you’ve lost facial volume that you used to have (loss resulting from any number of everyday reasons), or you experience inadequate volume due to genetic makeup.

The volume loss or absence is seen in the temples, cheeks and lower face. No matter what the underlying cause, this absence of fat undesirably sharpens contours, creates hollows and can cause a generalized appearance of fatigue or poor health. If you feel good, you certainly don’t want to look like you don’t. This is where the power of the newer dermal fillers really shines.
