This fat tends to thin out with aging allowing the skin of the face to settle downward. The youthful triangular shape of our face is replaced by a more rectangular shape with a flattening of the cheekbone, a deepening of the nasolabial and marionette groove and downward migration of the neck skin and muscles obscuring the sharp angle of the jawline.
