Congratulations! You've achieved your weight loss goals thanks to the latest advancements in injectable medications. Medications like semaglutide (sold under the brand names Ozempic and Wegovy) and tirzepatide (Mounjaro) have revolutionized weight management, helping countless individuals reach a healthier weight.

But while shedding pounds brings numerous health benefits, it can sometimes come with an unexpected aesthetic consequence: "Ozempic Face." This term refers to the visible changes in the face that can occur after significant weight loss, particularly facial fat loss.

To understand how to approach Ozempic Face, we need to explore the exciting range of facial rejuvenation options available to restore a balanced, youthful look.

The Latest Trend: Injectable Weight Loss

Semaglutide and tirzepatide are two types of injectable medications that have been achieving great results for weight management. Semaglutide belongs to a class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists. It works by mimicking the effects of a natural hormone, GLP-1, which is produced in the gut after eating. GLP-1 helps regulate appetite and blood sugar. Tirzepatide is a dual incretin mimetic, meaning it targets two gut hormones: GLP-1 and GIP. By activating both pathways, tirzepatide may offer additional benefits for regulating blood sugar and promoting weight loss.

Both of these medications work to increase feelings of fullness after meals, leading to reduced calorie intake. They may also slow digestion for better nutrient absorption. Both medications require a prescription and should be used alongside a healthy diet and exercise for optimal results.

The Tell: Ozempic Face

While weight loss medications offer significant health benefits, rapid weight loss can lead to a noticeable reduction in facial fat. This fat plays a vital role in maintaining a youthful facial structure. When it diminishes, the skin loses its underlying support, leading to a worn appearance, increased wrinkles, and sagging, especially around the cheeks and jawline.

It's important to note that Ozempic Face isn't exclusive to these medications. Regardless of the method, it can occur with any rapid or significant weight loss.

Options for Facial Rejuvenation After Weight Loss

The good news is that achieving a balanced, youthful appearance after weight loss is absolutely possible. With a variety of facial rejuvenation treatments available, you can address the visible signs of Ozempic Face and restore a sense of confidence in your reflection.

The key to achieving optimal results lies in consulting a board-certified plastic surgeon at The Aesthetic Center. Our experienced surgeons will carefully assess your individual needs, facial anatomy, and weight loss goals to recommend the most suitable treatment plan.

Here's an overview of some popular surgical and non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation after weight loss:


This procedure addresses sagging skin and restores a more youthful contour to the face and jawline. By strategically tightening and lifting the underlying facial tissues, a facelift can significantly improve the appearance of wrinkles, jowls, and a "hollowed-out" look.

Deep Plane Facelift

This advanced technique offers a more natural-looking and long-lasting outcome than a traditional facelift. It involves lifting deeper facial tissues, resulting in a more rejuvenated appearance without compromising facial expressions.

Brow Lift

A brow lift can be a great option if you notice drooping brow and forehead wrinkles. This procedure elevates the brow line, opening the eye area and creating a more refreshed look.

Neck Lift

This procedure addresses sagging jowls and defines the neck contour. By removing excess skin and tightening underlying muscles, a neck lift can significantly improve the appearance of the lower face and jawline.


This procedure focuses on the eyelids, reducing puffiness, bagginess, and wrinkles around the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can create a more youthful and alert appearance in the eyes.

Injectables & Fillers

Restoring lost facial volume is a key aspect of addressing Ozempic Face. Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, can be strategically injected to plump up hollow cheeks, smooth wrinkles, and lines, and enhance facial definition.

Laser Skin Tightening

This non-surgical treatment utilizes laser energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Over time, this results in firmer, tighter skin with a more youthful texture.

Finding the Right Solution: Consultation with The Aesthetic Center

Every patient's journey to facial rejuvenation is unique. There's no "one-size-fits-all" solution to Ozempic Face. How much overall weight has been lost, how much facial fat has been lost, and your unique facial characteristics all play a part in your program. That’s why a consultation is a crucial first step.

During your consultation at The Aesthetic Center, our surgeons will take the time to understand your concerns, desired outcomes, and medical history. They will also discuss your weight loss goals and any medications you're currently taking to ensure a safe and effective treatment plan for Ozempic Face.
