According to West Palm Beach dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Beer, the heart-shaped face is considered to be the ideal face shape because it is seen as more youthful. This is because, as we age, the fat pads in the middle and upper face droop and collect at the bottom third of the face, causing the face to have more of a pyramid shape. Faces that are perceived to be youthful have fat pads in the middle and upper portions of the face, and these fat pads give the face it’s heart-shaped appearance. In order to regain a youthful appearance, plastic surgeons recommend injecting fillers into the upper and middle portions of the face and recreating a heart-shaped structure.
