Fat loss alleviates Facial Ageing – confirms a research




Weight loss leads to fat loss in body as well as face. But, we love to look healthy with not much of fat loss in face. Because, we ourself would have noticed people before and after weight loss transformation. They tend to look older than earlier, as they experience fat loss in face as well.

Recently, a research team of Wisconsin Medical college did a study on 19 middle aged people, who undertook CT head scans on two occasions, a decade apart. The average age of them varied from 46 years ( initial scan ) and 56 years ( at the time of follow up ). These patients were not involved in facelift or cosmetic procedures.The results shows a “definite and measurable loss of midface fat volume.”

The total volume of facial fat decreased from about 46.50 cc (at the initial scan) to 40.8 cc (at the follow-up scan). It shows a reduction of about 12.2 per cent.

Dr. Morgan says -“Variations in fat volume loss can also explain ageing-related hollow eyes and heavy jowls. Usually, The upper face has less fat,so fat loss is more visible. In contrast, the cheek or buccal area has relatively little fat loss, so that area appears fuller as changes occur in other areas of the midface.”

He further reports – “We think that our findings will help plastic surgeons design more natural approaches to facial rejuvenation, with the aim of re-creating the facial fat distribution of youth. This proves there is volume depletion and not just laxity of tissues with ageing. So, volume replacement should be used in addition to surgical procedures to attempt to recreate the youthful face.”
