Rejuvenating the Face After Weight Loss
It’s the downside no one tells you about: you work hard to lose weight, and you realize you look… older. You’ve lost fat all over your body, including your face. This can result in sagging skin and jowls, more pronounced wrinkles, and an overall less youthful look. It’s hard to celebrate your achievement when you feel your face suddenly looks less vibrant.
You deserve to look and feel your best after accomplishing your weight loss goals. And there are a variety of ways you can get your face looking great again with the help of a skilled facial plastic surgeon.
Non-Invasive Wrinkle Erasers
Wrinkles happen to nearly everyone, but if you’ve lost weight, you may find that your wrinkles look more pronounced than before. This may be due to a loss of fat in your face and stretching of your facial skin.
If you’re not ready for surgery or have a big event coming up quickly, solutions like BOTOX® and dermal fillers are great ways to get a younger, smoother face fast. There’s no downtime, and results are usually visible within a few days or less. BOTOX is the gold standard for correcting wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Dermal fillers can help restore plumpness to certain areas of your face, giving you a fresher, younger look.
Putting Your Best Face Forward
In many cases, cosmetic surgery is the most effective way to renew your face and neck area after the skin has lost some of its elasticity and tightness.
A facelift is not just for aging. In fact, this procedure is a great way to restore your face after your successful weight loss efforts. When facial skin becomes loose and sags due to weight fluctuations, gravity takes its toll and pulls your face downward. To combat this and rejuvenate your face, Dr. Siegel uses a specialized approach known as a Vertical Facelift to bring the skin and structures back up, addressing wrinkles, sagging, and loose skin without making you look “pulled” or “tight.”
Similarly, a neck lift can eliminate loose skin and sagging on the neck. The neck often makes people look older than they are, and after weight loss, this can be particularly bothersome. Your neck lift can be combined with a facelift or done alone, depending on your needs.
