Good news and bad news about weight loss!

So, you have finally reached the weight you wanted….

After working so hard to get the perfect beach figure you are still not happy. Why? Because in losing weight you didn’t give any thought to how your face would react.

The trouble with weight loss is that it happens all over.  It is indiscriminate and it can age you as much as carrying too much weight!

As you lose weight the volume around your face and hands can significantly reduce; and percentage of this reduction increases with age. You may start to see fine lines appear that were previously smooth skin or you may think you now have slightly sunken eyes, your cheeks may lose their volume and your lips can become thinner. If you have carried a lot of extra weight for some time, it may take some time for your skin to recover its elasticity. The body beautiful comes at a price sometimes that your face and hands pay.

But all is not lost!

If your face and hands are suffering from the side effects of weight loss, we can help you by restoring volume using dermal fillers.  Dermal fillers are clear gels that contain clinically refined non-animal hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in our body which helps hydrate and add volume to our skin. With age and sudden weight loss you sometimes need a bit of help and this safe non surgical treatment to replace lost volume in static facial lines can do just that.

There are 8 points where we can make a significant difference (see 8 point face lift post). By using dermal fillers to give you back the lost volume you will gain a more youthful looking you to match your new trim body.

Take a look at the pictures below and you will see just how subtle, but important those changes are.


Lines are smoothed out and cheeks enhanced to give you back your volume. The areas around the mouth and chin are lifted in the same way.


Hands are another area that show the signs of aging quickly when you lose weight. You can see what a difference fillers can make here; years off in a day!


If you would like a FREE consultation to look at how we can harmonise your face and hands with your new body image, please give us a call. We can talk through your options and then you decide! There is no pressure.
