Many people are seriously concerned about the appearance of the fat in their face, which most of the time is too stubborn and needs a special treatment. It usually happens when you’ve put on a few pounds in your face or maybe you’ve lost weight, but your face has stayed in the same state.
To get rid of that round cheeks and chubby chin you should understand what’s behind this condition.
According to Stephen S. Park, M.D., F.A.C.S., president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, usually, when the people gain or lose weight, they are not increasing or decreasing the number of fat cells (adipocytes).
In many cases, the cells themselves are enlarging or reducing. It causes having a problem in that area and some people will report always when they are facing weight issues. It is significantly noticed that those people have more fat cells in that area than other people do, says Park.
Some of the people are born with these characteristics, which is caused by their bone structure and other components linked to the face structure, can make a face look fuller. In such cases, there’s nothing you can do to change your genetics or spot-reduce fat, but you can do something that can help you to thin out a ballooning face.
Here are 3 ways how you can eliminate that form:
- Fight Water Retention
Many habits linked to your diet and drinks, such excess alcohol, sugar, and salt intake can cause fuller faces, according to medical weight-loss expert Sue Decotiis, M.D., Of course, these habits don’t only affect that specific area, but all your body’s tissues to hold onto water.
To get rid of face-bloating, cutting down on consumption of these types of sugary and salty foods and alcoholic drinks is first you should do, and simultaneously up your intake of water. The dehydration of your body causes retaining any water flowing through it.
- Treat Any Food Intolerances
Sue explains that the people with food intolerances and allergies, such as irritable bowel syndrome and gluten sensitivity frequently complain of fuller faces. Those people are bloating, which is a common symptom that is not exactly linked to the digestive process. According to many medical institutions, it is not defined that irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which affects up to 15 percent of U.S. adults, causes bloating, but gas within the gut appears to have nothing to do with it.
- Your Hormones Are Surging
If your face facing that problem you should consult the doctor about maintaining your hormones. According to Decotiis, before the period of women strikes, their bodies experience a spike in the hormone progesterone, which causes facial swelling. If your periods are irregular or you’re experiencing hot flashes and, you may be entering into perimenopause. It can lead up to menopause and can last for years.
Even that happens in the older women, in some women, perimenopause starts as early as their mid-thirties.
