Weight Loss Changes
Hi Rapunzel7,Thanks for your question. Congratulations on getting more physically active and healthy. Sagging of the midface and worsening of lower lid bags is a common issue we see in patients who have lost a lot of weight. Volume is a large component of a youthful appearance in the face. As you lose weight, and the volume associated with it, the facial soft tissue tends to descend. I am not sure that supplements would really give you much benefit. I wouldn't recommend eating fatty foods because a) they aren't healthy and b) there's no guarantee the weight gain will be in your face. We have found that a procedure called fat transfer, often combined with a small incision facelift, does a great job of restoring volume and a youthful appearance to the face. This is accomplished by removing fat from the abdominal and inner thigh areas and placing it in certain areas in the face. I would recommend an in-person consultation with a skilled facial plastic surgeon in your area. Good luck!
