Ayyyy.com has posted this photo of an extremely gaunt Mischa Barton. What has happened to her? Her face has gotten extremely thin and wasted. Can this be aging, drugs, or weight loss (or a combination)?
As the face ages, it loses volume. The best surgical treatment for this is facial fat grafting. Nonsurgically, Sculptra (although not FDA approved for this purpose) is a fine treatment for volumizing a gaunt face, but takes several treatment sessions.
Mischa was such an attractive woman before. Hopefully she can gain some weight, get healthy, and maybe even try a little fat grafting if needed.
