One of the many uses of dermal fillers is to sculpt the face, adding structure and replacing volume to provide added definition and fullness. This is particularly useful as we grow older and the framework of the face—i.e. the bones of the skull and the fat pads that sit on top of and around them—begins to shrink with age. This is an area where fillers can make a remarkable difference, to restructure the face from the inside out, by gently redefining the contours of the jaw and the cheeks.
This week, I went to the Define Clinic to talk with Dr Benji Dhillon about sculpting the face using a particular brand of filler called Teoxane. He knows this area inside-out and we had a fascinating conversation about fillers and the “ideal” face shape. Then I got to watch him work on a male patient who was looking to recover some of the facial structure he had noticed fall away over the years.
