We are all unique. We all have a face, but we all have different features. Eyes might be round, almond-shaped, close-set or protruding, noses can look hooked, roman or snubbed, and the chin can look pointed, square or receding. The cheeks are also individual to each persons face, with flat cheeks, high cheekbones and apple cheeks. Bone structure, muscle and fat distribution determines the shape of the cheeks, as well as genetics.
When we describe someone as having a baby face, they typically have fuller cheeks, which makes them look younger than others of a similar age. The apple is what we call the plumpness of the cheek, which when seen in children's faces, it's described as chubby cheeks. The reason some people have full, defined apple cheeks and others have cheeks that are flat, is gravity. A pad of fat causes this fullness, and it's this, that tends to slide lower down the face as we age.
We can have poorly defined, flat cheeks at any stage of our life, maybe we have a narrow or flat face or a weak cheek structure. It could be that the cheeks just lack definition, but usually lost cheek contour is a side effect of ageing, when the fat pads slide down the face.
Many people think that high cheekbones are very attractive. If someone has high cheekbones, it means that the widest part of the face is just below the eyes, giving the cheekbone a more prominent look as the cheek dips in below the bone. This can cause shadows which will accentuate and give definition to the cheekbones.
It's been said that high cheekbones are a sign of youth and beauty, but as we age, the cheeks begin to lose volume. This loss of volume often results in hollows in the cheeks, caused by loss of fat from beneath the skin. Cheek augmentation can restore the fullness using dermal fillers. A subtle enhancing of your bone structure can create the kind of bone structure we all want to show off.
