Every week, Brandith Irwin, MD, answers questions from readers of her blog, SkinTour.com. A recent blog provides information about how to refill lost volume in the face after significant weight loss.
"When we are young, our skin has more elasticity and will literally bounce back better after a big weight change," explains Dr. Irwin.
As we age, our skin becomes less elastic and with any weight loss comes sagging skin. According to Dr. Irwin, fillers are often a great solution for people with facial volume loss when their skin tone is still pretty good and they just need to replace the underlying fat that was lost. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are injected into lines, creases, and grooves in the face and provide a near instantaneous correction of medium to deep lines.
Alternatively, Dr. Irwin shares that plastic surgery is also an option for people who have facial volume loss after significant weight loss. "If you really have adequate bone and fat pads and the skin is just quite loose, then plastic surgery might be your best option,” says Dr. Irwin. She recommends taking time to do proper research and figuring out what the best options are for your skin type.
