…..I have to be honest, this was actually something I’d considered a long time ago, but put off for years under the assumption that filler is the true line between a little tweak here and there (which is what young people do) and committing to a life of plastic surgery and upkeep (which is what Cher does). That said, I truly feel that some wrinkles add a little character, while folds and jowls make you look more like a character from a cartoon….an old one. My cheeks that were once apple-y and easy to find for the purpose of applying blush, had sunken into my face and were beginning to fall past my jawline like Droopy Dog (I told you cartoon-like). It was time.
I went to see my board-certified plastic surgeon who I often use for advice in my columns because he’s pretty awesome. He agreed that some filler in my mid cheeks would pull up some of the sag and lift away some of the marionette lines around my mouth. He suggested Voluma XC (by Allergan), which is the newest filler on the block. It’s easy to add to, easy to manipulate, and its base is hyaluronic acid, which means it can be dissolved if need be. I may seem brave, but I’m too big of a wuss to go with something that can’t be removed.
My face immediately looked younger and fuller, and I truly mean that. I was so thrilled that I skipped out the door……
My cheeks were fuller but not obvious. My face looked a lot younger, but not blatantly so. Like maybe I got a great haircut or found a fabulous new BB (Beauty Balm) cream or was using tacks to hold my skin up? No one knew for sure.
