I have got Sunken Cheeks (hollow in cheeks) My face looks very bad. I am 24. Please help me because I am very sad. I desperately want to improve my sunken cheeks. Hope you guide me. Please tell me what do I eat more, which fruit I should have etc. to make my cheeks fat. Jawed. Karachi, Pakistan.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Don't really know if you are taking HIV medications. If you are not, then gaining weight by any means will fill out your cheeks. The best way to gain weight is to eat more calories. It does not matter what you eat but it should be balanced between fat, protein and carbohydrates. Good luck! DTD

Is it a mistake?
Antivirals in my future or slow progressor?
