The midface is always one of my initial targets for volumization, whether it be with filler or fat.
As we age, the cheek fat starts to shrink and descend. Using a small amount of filler in the right place can re-inflate this area and in doing so, support and improve some of the adjacent structures like the nasolabial folds (smile lines) and the lower eyelids.
Subtle is always key, as too much filler in this area can lead to the unnatural "maleficent" look.
It's important to find a provider who has a background in aesthetic/cosmetic medicine and understands how to provide balance and proportion. This is the only way to achieve a natural result.
