Abstract

The volumetric techniques of injectable fillers and autologous fat transfer are an important tool in the treatment of facial aging. Rapid widespread adoption has outpaced a sophisticated understanding of the goals of volume rejuvenation. The development of shadows and shadow patterns are the fundamental changes that occur with volumetric facial aging. A detailed examination of these shadows will lead to an understanding of how to apply volumetric techniques to create natural appearing results.
