Hey guys.

I was wondering if anybody has ever reduced their jowling or marrionette lines, or both, with some weight loss?

I know most seem to report these areas getting worse with weight loss, but did any of you see actual improvement in those two specific areas from losing weight?

Thanks guyys

I did but it wasn't massive weight loss. I gain and lose five pounds regularly and it always shows up in my face. I am not one of those women who will ever get fat injections because I think my face looks too puffy to begin with. Always has even when I am very slim.

If you have good resilient skin, then reducing the fat that is stretching your skin and gravity is pulling that fat down, then logically it should spring back when you lose weight. Depends on your bone structure as well. I have high cheekbones. You have 'nothing to lose' by losing weight. Laughing

I notice the fat leaving that area on my face with weight loss. Right now mine look bad and I am tempted to go get filler or get someting done to improve them..but i know if i just lose some more weight they will improve greatly.

So..my suggestions is lose weight first…then see where you're at.

We sound the same. Weight gain always shows in my face, and like you I will never have the filler injections. Staying trim will help with the jowls.

In my early 40s I lost 35 pounds and my jowl area improved significantly. I never had jowls and at age 47 still do not have jowls but my jowl area had looked a little loose and puffy before I lost the weight. I went from being slightly overweight to borderline underweight and was surprised to see that my jowl area looked tight and defined with no loose skin. I was especially surprised because on many areas of my body I had some loose and sagging skin and it took a long time for that skin to bounce back (fortunately it eventually did). Yet on my jowl area the skin seemed to snap right back. I don't know why. I wonder is using RetinA might have benefited the integrity of the skin in that area. I have gained about 20 of those pounds and while my jowl area still looks tight I think it looked better when I weighed less. So for me weight loss definitely seems to help the jowl area.

Okay I got into a craze when I hit 50 and lost a load of weight using a sensible eating program (weight watchers) which worked for me very well but I have to say that when I lost weight, it aged my face very quickly and I had sagging and wrinkles exposed.

Of course that was over 10 years ago, and I have had the joy of menopause (LOL) and other things going on but have to say I'm much happier with my looks than I have ever been before and I still do lots of things like facial exercises and massage. I don't follow any one program to the letter but I have been working my face for some time so know it better and what I like more than any program creator can tell me so thats me.

I did go through stages where I have put weight back on and it has helped my face a little but nothing concrete I could say.

gowpele- I saw your other post where you mentioned having "a large deal of volume loss in my upper and mid cheeks". My personal experience is that while losing weight helped with my jowl area it caused a noticeable loss of volume in my upper and mid cheek area. Having gained 20 of those pounds back I am a lot happier with the appearance of my cheek area. Yes, my jowls looked best at my lowest weight but with the volume loss in my cheeks I think overall my face looked worse at that weight. Something to consider if you are very concerned with the volume of fat in your cheeks.

Oh I see. Well I plan on really only losing 3 or four pounds. I had slightly less cheek fat at that weight but my jowl area and overall face shape was better at that weight and a non noticeable amount of fat less when I was that weight
