Admittedly, this is a bit of an odd topic to write about. However, it is a very real concern for some people and I’ve gotten the question more than a few times, so I thought I’d dedicate a whole post to it. Enjoy.
It’s the first thing people notice about you when they meet you. There are very few ways to hide it, and you’ve got to live with it. Your face is your first foot forward. It’s no wonder that so many people want to get plastic surgery to make it look like they’ve lost weight in their face.
It’s important to remember that there are alternatives to expensive and potentially dangerous surgeries when your goal is simply thinning or tightening the look of your face. Your face is no different than any other area on your body when it comes to losing weight. The same things that cause you to lose weight in your thighs or your arms or your belly, will also cause your face to have a more firm, slim, and young appearance. Contrary to some information out there, your face is not immune to the effects of exercise.
In fact, when someone starts a weight loss routine, one of the first places that they notice weight loss is in the face. This is good news, as the time required to notice a visible change to your face in the mirror is relatively small when compared with some of the more well-known trouble spots, like the thighs and love handles.
When someone is unhappy with the shape of their face, the reason can usually be traced back to one of two main causes, and usually a combination of them both. They are:
- You have too much fat covering your face.
- Your facial muscles lack elasticity.
