Ozempic Face: What it is and How to Treat it

Ozempic Weight Loss Leaving Your Face Flat?Ozempic Face

Ozempic, also known as semaglutide, was approved for use in adults with type 2 diabetes in 2017 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As defined on the Ozempic website, it is a “once-weekly medicine for adults with type 2 diabetes used to improve blood sugar, along with diet and exercise, and reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke, or death in adults with type 2 diabetes and known heart disease.”

Although not made specifically for weight loss, studies have shown weight loss can be seen as a result of taking the medication. When a patient experiences weight loss like they do on Ozempic, they may notice changes in their body. In an American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) survey, 60% of facial plastic surgeons reported seeing an increase of patients with complaints of “Ozempic Face.”

“Ozempic Face”

Ozempic Face happens when patients experience facial weight loss resulting in facial deflation and a prematurely aged appearance. Because of this, patients have turned to corrective procedures to bring youth and fullness back to the face. It is reported that around 25% of patients opt for corrective surgery and 25-50% of patients opt for injectables to mitigate the problem.

How Plastic Surgeons Approach Ozempic Face

Plastic and cosmetic surgeons have adapted to this demand and offered insights on what they think is best. In total, 15% of facial plastic surgeons surveyed recommend treating this situation exclusively with facial filler, 12% recommend face and neck lifts, and 2% recommend fat grafting.

Gaining Weight Back After Ozempic

Due to the nature of Ozempic, patients may experience weight gain once they stop using the medication. This could interfere with the corrective procedures mentioned above. Patients may feel as though their filler is being pushed out or their surgical results have been distorted. This can be avoided with extreme precision and strategic placement by your doctor at the time of the corrective procedure, but doctors have also recommended making changes in diet and lifestyle in order to maintain their results as best as possible.

Ozempic and its effects are relatively new to plastic surgeons. The more patients use it and the longer it stays around, the more doctors will be able to understand and address problems such as Ozempic Face. Make sure you consult with your doctor when deciding to start this medication.

“The are the BEST plastic surgeons in DC

Read some of the amazing reviews from our patients

Dr. Brown is a true artist and very concerned with aesthetics when approaching all procedures. I had my ear lobes repaired from big gauges and he has fixed them better than I was born with! They are so cute and perfect now. I would trust him to improve anything I found bothersome about myself!” — Jourdan D.

“I had a great experience with Dr. Bruno. I had to have cosmetic work after a breast cancer diagnosis and at the same time as a partial mastectomy. I am very happy with the result and my experience there. He did a terrific job and he couldn’t have been nicer. He even returned one of my calls at 9 pm at night. And his office is well run and the staff are friendly and efficient. I highly recommend.” — Kathleen G.

“I’m so happy I found BB Plastic Surgery! I wanted to explore liposuction to fix a problem area for me as I always gain my weight in the same place, creating a very unbalanced look. Everyone was SO kind, professional, and just lovely. The liposuction procedure was absolutely perfect in every way. I healed quickly and my trouble spots are no more. These are the BEST plastic surgeons in DC!” Jennifer P.

Questions to Ask Your DC Plastic Surgeon During Your Consultation

DC Plastic SurgeonBefore undergoing any type of plastic surgery, you’ll likely do your research and try to find the best doctor for you. But how do you know if they’re a great plastic surgeon and can give you the results you want? We’ve put together a list of questions to ask to help you make your decision.

The questions to ask during a consultation with a DC plastic surgeon

  • What procedure or procedures are right for me? You may go into a consultation expecting that one procedure is right for you and find out that there are other options that may end up aligning more with your goals. You’ll want to find a surgeon who listens to your goals and is able to suggest possible alternatives so you know all of your options before getting started.
  • How do you achieve your results? You’ll want to understand their techniques, what the surgery involves, and the ongoing support provided during recovery.
