How Do I Add Volume To My Face Naturally?

Looking your best doesn’t always mean losing volume from your face. In fact, some of the more popular treatments from cosmetic treatment centers are dermal fillers and other facial rejuvenation procedures. As people age, we produce less collagen, losing youthful volume in the process. This leads many to ask “how can I restore volume to my face naturally?”

In the past decade, cosmetic specialists have continued to discover surgical and nonsurgical ways to enhance the loss of volume, especially in the face and neck areas.

Why Your Cheeks Look Sunken In

The cheeks tend to look sunken in as we age for various reasons. First, the skin loses elasticity and begins to sag. Second, fatty tissues below the skin diminish, causing a loss of volume. Third, the bones of the face change shape as they lose density, resulting in a hollowed-out appearance. All of these factors combine to give an aging face a sunken-in look.

However, there are ways to combat this problem.

Facial exercises can help to tone the muscles and improve skin elasticity, while fillers can plump up the skin and restore lost volume. In addition, treatments such as laser resurfacing can help to smooth out wrinkles and give the face a more youthful appearance. By taking action early on, it is possible to keep your cheeks looking full and healthy for years to come.

Fat Grafting To The Face

Fat grafting or volumetric restoration to the face is a popular facial volume restoration treatment. Volumetric restoration enables the reorganization of elastic fibers underneath the facial skin, creating a more rejuvenated appearance. This procedure can also be combined with a facelift for an overall refreshed appearance and add volume to the skin.

Dermal Fillers For Facial Volume

What Is Facial Filler Treatment?

Facial fillers are a series of injectable dermal fillers that serve to fill out areas of lost volume in your face. Dermal fillers can be combined with sterile gels, hyaluronic acid, and other helpful chemicals to round out areas where you’ve lost skin volume.

One type of dermal filler that can improve facial volume is Restylane. Available at The Lett Center, Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that replenishes volume loss. This volume loss can leave the face appearing skinnier and older, as well as causing wrinkles to form.

For this type of treatment, repeat treatments are necessary to maintain results. These are usually conducted in six to 12-month intervals.

Dermal fillers provide a more natural appearance as opposed to a facelift. Fillers are also less invasive and create results that can be noticed right after your appointment. Dermal fillers can be used to correct a number of face issues, including eliminating visible wrinkles, raising scar depressions, and enhancing other body areas such as the lips.

PDO Threading

PDO threading has become one of the most popular treatments for adding volume and lifting areas of the face and neck. This non-surgical treatment gives instant results with continued progress over time. With PDO threads, patients are seeing significant results for plumping areas like the cheekbones – similar to 1-2 syringes of dermal filler. Many patients looking to lift and tighten certain areas like the cheeks, jowls or neckline opt for this aesthetic option, often in combination with other aesthetic treatments.

How Do I Know If Fillers Are Right For Me?

There are many factors a patient should consider before undergoing any type of cosmetic facial change. Some of these include:

  • Age, overall health, and desired outcome
  • The pre-care and recovery process
  • The type of filler you would like to try
  • Determine what exactly you would like to change about your face

The Lett Center has a range of procedures available for you to choose from based on your desires.

What Other Options Are There For Facial Rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation can also be achieved through many different procedures and forms of treatment. In the past, this type of change was only possible through a select few procedures, such as skin resurfacing with lasers and peels, as well as soft tissue repositioning. But now, treatment options have expanded tremendously. At The Lett Center, we provide many options for facial rejuvenation, including cosmetic surgery.

We’ve already spoken about the benefits of dermal fillers for enhancing appearance, but there are more options.

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is another type of filler material used to restore volume. By harvesting fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, fat can then be administered to the face, filling in hollow areas or plumping cheekbones and lips. Unlike fillers, fat from the patient’s body is used during this procedure, creating an effective, endless supply. It has also been found that peripheral stem cells can have a great effect on cellular differentiation, leading to improved tissue quality.

Fractora Microneedling

One of the things that cause us to look older is how the collagen begins to break down as we age. Collagen is responsible for helping the skin stay elastic and full. Without as much collagen in the skin, more wrinkles will begin to form. In order to stimulate collagen production again, one of the best ways cosmetic surgeons and aestheticians have found is by combining radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling.

At The Lett Center, we offer RF microneedling treatments with the Fractora device from InMode.

Benefits include:

  • Decreasing wrinkles
  • Improving complexion
  • Helps with hyperpigmentation
  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks


For improving facial volume, and adding to fat loss, FaceTite is a procedure that melts fat and sculpts your jawline. Results aren’t quite as focused on adding volume to the face, but patients enjoy their results. FaceTite also helps reduce sagging skin around the neck.

This is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed quickly at one of our local offices in Lebanon or Mt. Juliet.

Which Facial Rejuvenation Treatment Is Right For Me?

If you’re not sure whether dermal fillers or another facial treatment is right for you, use these tips:

  • Do your research: You won’t be capable of making a choice if you’re unsure of what each outcome entails. Take some time to research each kind of filler or technique for fat grafting. With knowledge, both you and your surgeon can reach the best decision possible.
  • Know what your desired outcome is: How much do you want to change or enhance your appearance? Having an idea in mind of your ultimate outcome is essential, as it may point to the best form of treatment possible.
  • Take your time: This isn’t a decision that must be made overnight. Take the time and energy to decide which is best for you on your terms and your timeline.

Finally, the best thing you can do is book a consultation with a plastic surgeon or aesthetician. They can educate you about all of the different options available to you.
