There is no doubt that shedding excess weight is something everyone should seek to do. Losing unwanted pounds can give you renewed energy, help improve your appearance, solve health woes, and even lengthen your lifespan. However, it can also lead to a sagging appearance in the face and a slackened neck. If the weight loss process has caused undesirable changes to your face, there are things you can do to address the situation.
Anyone of a certain age who has ever lost a great deal of weight knows that those who succeed with diet and exercise plans are likely to experience changes in their face that they may not always love. The skin of younger people is far more elastic than that of older people. Young folks lose weight faster than their older counterparts, and their skin shrinks to fit more easily as well. When older individuals lose fat cells, they must face the fact that their skin over time has also lost elastic and collagen. The end result is a wrinkly, lined appearance that they may not have anticipated amid the excitement of weight loss achievements.
While your newly slimmed down figure will surely leave you feeling energetic and youthful in terms of your body, your face may appear older than you imagined. When you lose the underlying volume beneath the skin, facial features can begin to look rather sunken. Fortunately, strategies do exist that can make a big difference.
You can always opt for one of the popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures or even elect to undergo surgery, depending on how drastic of a change you wish to make. There are several methods of reducing wrinkles and tightening slackened skin from which to choose. A skilled doctor will take your complete health history, asses your skin’s current condition, learn about your objectives, and formulate a detailed plan to make the improvements you desire.
If weight loss has changed your facial appearance for the worse, Dr. Moubayed stands ready to offer advice and options to remedy the situation. Schedule a consultation to learn more about how to rejuvenate your appearance and get the most out of the weight loss results you have spent so much time and effort trying to obtain.
