Malar bags/pouches are pockets (like small pads) located at the level of the upper part of the cheekbone, the lower limit being the zygomatico-cutaneous ligament.
They are due to:
- Local edema.
- Relaxation of the muscle of the lower eyelid (the orbicularis of the eyelids).
- A herniation of the sub muscular fat (under the orbicularis of the eyelids) through the muscle.
Injections of hyaluronic acid do not treat the pouch but can mitigate it by raising the fallen malar fat. By realizing with the acid a small face lift, we restore the support to the orbicularis of the eyelids. We also attenuate a possible valley of tears, which, reduces the hollow near the pocket. There is really no way to avoid malar pockets.
It is necessary to have a healthy lifestyle: to avoid tobacco and alcohol, to have a balanced diet low in salt, to sleep a sufficient number of hours, to have a regular sporting activity.
