Our societal beauty standards typically uplift leaner bodies. But when it comes to our skin, maintaining subcutaneous body fat is crucial to supporting a youthful appearance.
In this episode, host Dr. Sethi discusses the role of subcutaneous fat and how it projects the skin and smoothes wrinkles for a youthful appearance. She explains how subcutaneous fat can diminish naturally through processes like aging and weight loss – and how people can restore this volume even after it is lost. Through methods like Sculptra injections, facial fillers, and fat transfer procedures, people can help restore fat underneath the skin. The episode covers each of these options and explains how they function to provide volume to the face and even other areas of the body.
