While baby fat and jolly cheeks may be features that people adore about infants, they aren't necessarily qualities we want to carry into adult hood. While removing facial fat is not as easy as it may seem, there are a few ways that you can help to firm the skin and reduce your somewhat chubby appearance.
Things You'll Need
- Cellulite reduction cream
- Consultation with a plastic surgeon
Get more exercise and eat a healthy diet which includes lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and water and reduces fried foods, processed and refined foods as well as sugar. This may not be what you wanted to hear, but reducing fat over your entire body is the best way to remove facial fat as well.
Exercise your face. Simple facial exercises won't help to burn facial fat; however, you can reduce the appearance of facial fat by toning the muscles of your face. Stand in front of the mirror and open your mouth as wide as possible, sticking out your tongue, pushing your chin forward and opening your eyes wide. Hold for 5 to 10 seconds, relax and repeat five times each and every day.
Apply cellulite reduction creams to your face and neck to help break down and remove facial fat, making sure that you apply the cream with deep massage for best results. Most of these creams are made for the body, so make sure that you search for a cream which will not harm the delicate tissue of your face and then follow the directions to the letter. Before you apply to your entire face, test the skin behind your ears to make sure that you do not have allergies or skin sensitivity.
Contact a plastic surgeon for a more invasive measures for removing facial fat. With today's technology, procedures vary from skin tightening with the use of light, thread lifts which require very little healing time as well as full on facial lifts, tucks and fat removal procedures.
