Addressing “Ozempic Face” and Other Changes After Weight Loss

Skin,Problems,Concept.,Upset,Middle,Aged,Woman,Looking,At,MirrorThe term “Ozempic face” refers to a side effect that some individuals may experience when taking Ozempic®, a medication commonly prescribed for type 2 diabetes and weight loss.

Ozempic, while effective in managing certain health conditions, may cause users to experience a reduction in facial fat, potentially leading to a more mature appearance due to the loss of volume. Fortunately, this phenomenon does not necessarily have to be a long-term consequence of experiencing significant weight loss.

Treatment for “Ozempic Face” and Other Changes After Significant Weight Loss

Following your significant reduction in weight, you may experience changes to your face and body that were not a part of your expected results. Thankfully, there are a number of treatments and procedures available to address the most common concerns after extreme weight loss, including skin laxity, wrinkles, and loss of volume in certain areas.

Non-Surgical Treatments

  • Facial fillers – Dermal fillers, or fillers, are a type of gel-like substance that is injected beneath the skin to help restore lost volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which can stem from “Ozempic face.” Fillers are also commonly used to address deep depressions and hollows on the face. Additionally, they can be used to enhance the fullness of the lips, cheeks, and chin.
  • Neuromodulators – These injectables use purified botulinum toxin, a protein solution sold under the trademark brands BOTOX Cosmetic®, Dysport®, and DAXXIFY®, that helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing certain muscles.

Face and Body Procedures

  • Facelift – improves facial and neck aging
  • Facial fat grafting – takes extra fat from your stomach, thighs, hips, and other regions to restore volume to your face
  • Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck – removes extra abdominal skin while toning the stomach area
  • Liposuction – removes stubborn, excess fat
  • Breast augmentation – improves the size and shape of the breasts
  • Breast lift – elevates sagging and improves breast projection
  • Body lift – removes excess skin following significant weight reduction
  • Male breast reduction – addresses breast sagging or excess breast tissue

In many cases, it may be beneficial to combine procedures in order to reduce the amount of time spent recovering and enhance your overall results.
