Any new successful treatments for malar bags?
I've heard that Aluma may be an answer. My malar bags developed about five years ago in my late 40s. They were possibly made worse by an upper and lower bleph two years ago, and have not been helped by fillers since then. They're very prominent in photos and unattractive. I'd be so grateful to find a way to eliminate them. I'm willing to have more surgery but would prefer an less invasive way. How about lymphatic drainage massage?

There is nothing better than fat transfer to the cheek area and other parts of the face that will bring out the youthful look that you once had. Experience is key.
visit www.drgrossman.com rejuvenation with fat section for ideas.

Very difficult area to treat, no great answer or therapy. I might try 12 watt Smart Lipo.
