How Weight Loss Affects the Face

While living with morbid obesity is no picnic, there is one unspoken advantage. Many overweight individuals have a firm, youthful-looking face. However, as the number on the scale went down as you dropped a few pants sizes, you may have noticed your face appearing more hollow and saggy. Losing facial fat can drastically alter the face shape and make patients look older than they are.

Facial Aesthetic Concerns After Losing Weight

  • Thin lips
  • A double chin
  • Sagging jowls
  • Droopy cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Hollow temples
  • Under eye circles
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
Facial Rejuvenation Treatments

Facial Rejuvenation Treatments

Our surgeons may recommend a facelift, dermal fillers, or both depending on your unique facial concerns.

Facelift Surgery

A facelift tightens the face from the cheeks to the jawline. The goal is to create a firm, defined mid-to-lower face that looks up to a decade younger. Your surgeon will lift the lax skin, fascia, and facial muscles through discreet incisions placed near the ears. Aesthetic issues addressed include a jowly appearance, cheek sagging, a double chin, a poorly contoured jawline, smile lines around the mouth, and laxity on the upper portion of the neck.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be used to treat wrinkles or add facial volume. Injecting fillers beneath the skin can make the face appear more plump, contoured, and youthful. The most commonly treated areas include the lips, cheeks, chin, under eyes, temples, and nasolabial folds around the mouth. Our specialist surgeons may administer your dermal fillers or they may refer you to Specialist Skin Solutions, a doctor-led skincare clinic in Newcastle.

Benefits of Face Rejuvenation After Weight Loss

Addressing facial volume loss is associated with improved self-esteem and a rejuvenated appearance. Combining dermal fillers and facelift surgery can treat a wide range of facial ageing concerns, from wrinkles and fine lines to jowl sagging, flat cheeks, under-eye hollows, a double chin, and poorly defined features. Together, our patients reverse common signs of ageing so they can look younger and feel confident again.

Main Benefits of Facial Rejuvenation:

  • A younger-looking face
  • Nicely defined facial features
  • More willingness to participate in social activities
  • Improved confidence and perceived attractiveness
Facial Rejuvenation Candidates

Facial Rejuvenation Candidates

If your face changed after bariatric surgery or extreme dieting, schedule a consultation with a specialist surgeon at Body Contouring Surgery Clinic to learn about your options. Our facial rejuvenation specialists will work with you one-on-one to determine if dermal fillers or facelift surgery are right for you.

During your consultation, we will ask about your cosmetic goals, lifestyle factors, and medical history to determine if you can safely undergo face rejuvenation in Newcastle. The ideal candidate is healthy, does not smoke, and is not pregnant or breastfeeding. If you plan to continue losing several kilos, we may advise you to wait until reaching your goal weight before scheduling your procedure.

Facial Rejuvenation Recovery

Learn what to expect after a facelift and dermal fillers at Body Contouring Surgery Clinic.

Facelift Recovery

A facelift can be done as a day procedure although an overnight stay may be required. Someone will need to drive you home from the hospital. A caregiver should stay with you for the first 24 hours.

The facelift incisions will be bandaged. If your surgeon applied sutures, they will remove them seven to ten days later. Much of the swelling and bruising subsides in the first few weeks. The surgical scar may be dark and raised at first. Eventually, your facelift scars should fade to a fine line.

Most patients return to work one to two weeks after a facelift. Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous workouts for approximately four weeks.

Dermal Fillers Recovery

Dermal fillers have no downtime. You can resume light work and social activities right away. Pinpoint bleeding, tenderness, redness, and swelling are short-lived side effects. Bruising can occasionally occur, especially if your provider injected filler around your mouth or lips.

Facial Rejuvenation Results

In the hands of a qualified surgeon, a facelift can make you look up to ten years younger. The cheeks, jawline, and upper neck should appear smooth, lifted, and firmer. Generally speaking, facelift results last anywhere from ten to 15 years. Dermal fillers are a less permanent solution, lasting from several months to two years before needing a touch-up.

To maintain your facial rejuvenation results, do not smoke, maintain a steady weight, apply SPF daily, and invest in quality skincare products.

Facial Rejuvenation FAQs

A facelift treats lax skin from the cheeks to the jawline. Fillers add volume to restore a sculpted, youthful face. Together, they can provide a dramatically younger-looking face after weight loss.

You should wait until you are at or close to your goal weight before booking your facial rejuvenation procedure. If you have a facelift or dermal fillers and continue to lose weight, your face may continue to lose youthful fullness.

Losing weight diminishes the facial fat pads, causing volume loss and saggy cheeks. Dermal fillers and facelift surgery can treat these issues.

Our surgeons aim to place the scars discreetly near the ears and hairline. Once healed, the scars should not be obvious from a normal conversational distance.

The most popular fillers contain hyaluronic acid. The results are long-lasting, but they are not permanent.

It depends on the type of dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid fillers (such as Juvederm and Restylane) can last anywhere from several months to two years depending on the product and area of the face.

Hyaluronic acid fillers can be reversed with hyaluronidase injections.
