Revitalize Your Look: How a Facelift Reverses Weight Loss Effects on the Face

By: Dr. Sang W. Kim


Recently, many people have seen success in meaningful weight loss through new classes of medication, known as semaglutides, that affect food appetite and intake. While weight loss results can provide improved health, confidence, energy, and overall well-being, they may also have a negative effect on facial appearance. Particularly, weight loss in the face can result in sagging skin and loss of youthful contour.

At Natural Face Clinics, board-certified plastic surgeon and facial rejuvenation specialist Dr. Sang W. Kim has extensive experience in weight loss-related changes to facial features in Syracuse, NY and Rochester NY, and can help patients restore a youthful, natural look they can feel confident about once again. If you feel like your facial appearance is hollow, aged, or sagging, we are here to help you restore a natural, youthful face that matches the newly gained healthy, confident, energetic body after the weight loss. Keep reading for more information on how one of the most popular facial rejuvenation surgeries — the facelift — can help to transform you.

Is a facelift right for me?

Because a facelift is customizable, almost anyone can benefit from the procedure. During your initial consultation for an East Syracuse, NY facelift, Dr. Kim will closely listen to your concerns and goals, evaluate your facial anatomy and degree of aging, and recommend the most appropriate surgical plan for you. Generally speaking, patients tend to choose facelift surgery between the ages of about 40 and 70, though patients of virtually any age may be considered candidates for some form of facial rejuvenation surgery.

How can a facelift help me look younger?

There’s no question that the primary goal of facelift surgery is to minimize the appearance of visible signs of aging and to restore a more youthful look overall. Some of the most common signs of facial aging that can be dramatically improved or even reversed with a surgical facelift include:

  • Drooping jowls
  • Loss of jawline definition
  • Sagging skin
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Saggy or tired eyelids
  • Baggy lower eyelids
  • Sunken areas around the inner corners of the eyes and the temples

What procedures can be combined with facelift surgery?

While facelift surgery is available in many forms and can provide beautiful results, some of the most complete and natural-looking transformations are often achieved by combining facelift surgery with complementary facial enhancement treatments and procedures. Based on your unique anatomy, your “biological age,” your skin laxity, and other individual factors, Dr. Kim may recommend adding one or more of the following to your facelift plan for an even more pleasing, younger-looking, and long-lasting outcome:
