How can I gain facial fat?

Commented on April 14, 2016
Created August 26, 2012 at 2:05 AM

I'm 5'0 and 95 lbs. I'm happy with my body. I used to be 110 lbs but I've lost 15 lbs over the past few months without even trying just by cutting out the junk food. My body looks very good now but oh my god, my face:( I used to have a baby face and relatively chubby cheeks which I liked because it made me look younger. I look older now because my face is so gaunt. I want to try paleo for the rest of the year and see how I feel on it. Does anyone have any tips to gain weight on my face without regaining the weight on my body? Thanks!

Start eating dry fruits, you will surely get those chubby cheeks back.

Trolling at its finest.

So if fat makes you fat, can someone eating 1200 total calories (say....80% from fat) get fat if their BMR is 2000 calories?

Given that your user name is CICO Suave, I sense some serious cognitive dissonance coming from your post.

Green Pasture fermented oils. Read info on website. Health gain without weight gain? Face could really brighten.

Yeah its weird the way I can easily collect fat below my belly button but I lose it super easy from my arms/face. I find eating lots of pork, especially belly, helps me plump up in the right places, cheeks, hands, feet... im a 6,4" ectomorph so usually have big skinny hands, they look so much healthier when plumped up. I think tis the collagen in the pork fat/skin, although gelatin rich broth doesn't seem to have the same effect.

i have no scientific reasoning to this answer but i don't see any logical way to make this happen. it's like the antithesis of trying to spot reduce and we all know that doesn't work. don't be afraid to put a little bit of weight back on girls look much better, imo, when they aren't skin and bones.

Dunno if this will help you or not, but it probably can't hurt. Japanese women are traditionally thin:

http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/the-vitamin-deficiency-that-is-written-all-over-your-face/

Excerpt:

It is known that Japanese women have fewer wrinkles and less skin sagging that women of the same age living in North America. These two groups of women vary greatly in diet and lifestyle, however.

Even when Japanese women living in Tokyo were compared with women from the Asian cities of Shanghai and Bangok, however, they showed the least visible signs of aging.

Diet and lifestyle factors for these three Asian groups of women are comparable except for one notable exception: the consumption of natto in Japan.

Tokyo residents frequently enjoy natto, a strong smelling food traditionally made from fermented soybeans for breakfast. Natto is loaded with menaquinone, Vitamin K2, and blood samples of the Tokyo women revealed high circulating levels of this fat soluble vitamin.

Further research which bolsters the notion that getting plenty of K2 in the diet makes for smoother facial features is found in the research of Korean scientists and was published in the journal Nephrology in 2008.

If you don't mind me linking to a relevant article: http://www.tomvenuto.com/asktom/lose_fat_in_face.shtml

My own experience is that the very low carb version of paleo wasn't for me for this very reason. I'm now following Paul Jaminet's 'Perfect Health Diet' and my face looks healthy.

In my own experiences with weight loss, I find that, as my skin overall tightens and catches up with weight loss, my face eventually does. I usually really like it when my face looks thinner, but then, my cheeks always come back, but I have made peace with that - maybe yours will too! I have found that skin seems to catch up a little afterwards, which is probably age dependent as well.

Hi.

Im 6'2, 78 kg. I study Mathematics, Play for Football team (semi-Pro)

Yes, once you lose the baby fat, its usually fairly impossible (for many people, LIKE ME) to gain it.

However, so far....what works for me is:

Make sure to have a good stomach (gut flora).

sorry to say....but... FACIAL EXERCISES!!!!!!!!!

And I like to Massage my cheek muscles etc before night....

For some people (like MEEEEE), exercising my faical muscles helps to keep them;

1.warm 2.happy!!. 3. and.... healthy!!!

now...this is MY take on this topic.. and my advice...

But YOU can do whatever the ..... You wanna do!!!!!

WHITE RICE.  Why white and not brown? Lectins and phytates.  Get your nutrients from dark green primarily.  Watch the gorilla...  You need some carbs to maintain proper homeostatis.  God put this on the earth to use as it's presented in nature.  You can't find a 50 lb. bag of rice in nature.  Always think about what you eat and how much would be available in nature.  Also you have to consider your lifestyle.  If you sit at a desk, you are fighting an uphill battle.  Sitting and stress release cortisol in huge quantities.  Then add the typical American diet of carbs, sugar, salt and processes garbage... fat.  Then people turn to extremes like Paleo for the magic cure.   The problem we face is far more complex than simply a diet change.  However people can lose a lot of water and fat by cutting all or almost all carbs.  You are forcing the body to survive rather than thrive.  Carbs are not the enemy.  Our lifestyle which forces us to live in ice and you will add some much needed water retention.  Water and fat are necessary for the body to be healthy.  Just learn what your carb toleration point is.  When I am not active I just snack on a small amount of rice and chicken through the day.  If I am more active I eat a bit more rice.  As soon as I drop my activity level, I lean towards chicken breast with skin and little to no carbs.  The real issue is just understanding how the body works.  Knowing what happens when you eat something.  For example, if you go very low to no carbs,  your body has to switch to fat burning mode.  This forces the body to work harder to convert fat into glucose.  If you go exercise really hard, your body is going to need glucose more readily available to preserve muscle tissue.  The body can breakdown the muscle tissue for energy faster than waiting for the body to break down fat into glucose.  Basically your body eats itself.  For me personally, I can't tolerate too much animal fat.  I have diabetes and gall bladder disease in my genes.  So I have to really hack at paleo to work it into my unique biology.  When I am not very active I eat more chicken breast with skin.  I also snack on a little white rice, chicken breast and onions.  I try to see how little I can get by on.  In other words I am giving my body just enough or almost not enough between activity.  When I exercise, I eat more rice than meat.  This is the time to kick up the carbs a bit more.  Most of the carbs will end up tappering out after the workout so you will get a little water and fat from this.  Knowing how much to use during active and non-active times is something you just have to play with.  Experiment.  Just avoid grains like wheat, barley, rye, oats, etc.  I personally can barely tolerate white rice.  I can't handle nightshades at all like potatoes, tomatoes, peppers.  You have to experiment to figure out what you are most tolerant of.  Learn your carb toleration point.  If you want to have some facial fat, you are going to have to live with a little belly fat.  You can't just have some facial fat without fat elsewhere.  The body doesn't store it where you would like it too.  It stores it everywhere in the proportions of your genetics.  Just be happy with a little fat and I guarantee you will be happier, healthier and menatlly not on edge.  I lost my marriage when I did extreme dieting and had low carb misery.  Funny how when you eat carbs you actually feel really good.  Must be a reason for it.  Understand that when your body is screaming for carbs, give it some.  Just realize it usually can't signal yout to stop or you end up binging and eating way too much because of poor self control.  Measure measure measure those carbs.  After a while you can ditch the measuring cups.  Because you will get it.  I know this is a big ramble.  I would like to write a book one day.  It's been a journey to hell and back.  Good luck!

There are some explanations of why different people store fat in different regions and they are more about hips and bellies but they can be worth reviewing still as proportionally less fat in an area means proportionally more fat in other areas.

PS: For example you can use coconut oil and pomegranate seed oil to reduce belly fatness...

PS: If you can not convert energy sources efficiently due to a reason such as pyridoxal-5-phosphate deficiency, that can make your body store fat in a conservation strategy and that means something like proportionally more fat in upper legs if I remember correctly

Avoid eating too few carbs. Carbs retain water, and a little water retention could create the allusion of a fuller face, plus help you gain a little in the long run.

Hmmm. Yeah.. :)

i had the same issue. IM 21 male.

Im quite sporty.

What I do to gain the facial fat is:

EAT PLENTY OF OLIVES. Peanuts.

eating potatoes with plenty of Butter!!

then, 1 hour after this, I stand on my hands, ( upsidedown), several times in a row.

You should feel your facial MUSCLES starting to get tight and working.

And Thank Me when you see results.

stick to a low carb diet, in your case I would limit your sodium intake, and would supplement with some yohimbine and caffeine pre workout. Might just be water retention

Google Facial Yoga

If you do any fitness training, be conscious of how you engage face/head/neck muscles. Your face can develop different contours through excercise just like the rest of you. Gather some ideas from Facial Yoga info and incorportate it into your daily routine.

My experience with these ideas has made me more conscious of my head and neck attitude while breathing during exercise, walking, etc. Anytime I can spare some attention to it, it is something I address. I definitely notice a less drawn face when I'm dilligent about these things, and chalk this up to better head and neck posture in general.

I have been researching face plumping methods for years, here's what I have learned along the way:

I always had very gaunt face, which made me look far thinner & older & certainly loses its charm at the onset of the aging process as the other women said (I'm 27 but facially look like I'm in my mid thirties). Others of this genetic disposition might agree with me that ( at least I feel) people are colder towards me initially because of how much harsher my face looks to other's my age.

Firstly (to get this out of the way)there are two surgical long-term alternatives:

1. Cheek implants (if you choose this then the smaller the better as when people convince themselves that this is going to transform their whole facial structure into the kind they have always wanted (like Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie who actually has a naturally broad, high-cheek-boned, almost African-like facial structure which is pivotally supported by her other features), instead of working with what they have by getting implants which suit their own face shape. We would all love fuller beautiful Africanesque facial features (and lucky to those who do!) but the average thin faced Caucasian cannot get away with this unfortunately. This instead results in an ageing, totally obvious & bizarre look- see Carla Bruni also watch a Youtube clip of John Hamm's partner Jennifer Westfeldt to see what I mean. My advice, better safe than scary!)

2. and/ or maybe fat transfers (with this one needs to undergo around three sessions of what is referred to as overfill before the fat stays put for a long time so it's the more trying and probably expensive of the two processes but also the more natural and youthful. I believe anything that gives a person self worth and makes one feel good about themselves is a good thing.

ALTERNATIVELY- for those like me who prefer natural alternatives here is how I have seen results over the past month since I noticed my face was beginning to lose more fat through ageing. The results are not dramatic but when it comes to the face a little roundness makes a HUGE difference to your appearance.

-I cut out ALL refined sugar (which I was very addicted to and definitely made my skin more gaunt, it's almost as bad as smoking for this).

-Obviously bad carbs white breads/pastas type of thing).

-I drink more water (no more than 2 ltrs per day and I start the day with green tea instead of coffee (I noticed gave me dark circles & therefore probably added to skin damage too so I replaced this with dried Green tea leaves in the morning which are high in caffeine). Do not drink so much water that you drown out the nutrients your skin needs). This clears your skin like you wouldn't believe for those sceptical tea and coffee drinkers.

-I eat on foods that help the skin's elasticity & don't leave you looking gaunt (you can find many lists of these super foods through Google searches).

- And the big one: sleep, when I would get 8 hours I would wake up looking gaunt & feeling tired, getting adequate sleep is not gluttonous, it helps with mental and physical health and helps you to function at your best. I was surprised to find that found out that until I am around 28 I need to be getting 9 hours each night. I try to make sure I sleep until I wake up feeling replenished, I would bet my bottom dollar on the old saying that 'an hour before 12 is better than 3 after' in relation to skin's plumpness and ability to rejuvenate).

- As a scatty, sugar junkie I found keeping a diary pivotal for my keeping track of my sleep, mind, body and skin in check).

Exercise! Outdoors is best for overall happiness (although I prefer the gym), the morning is best as it is better for habit forming and research shows you are more likely to stick to it. 3 times a week at least (I exercise Saturdays, Sundays and once or twice during the week if I have the time, being healthy does not need to take over your life).

-Give yourself a break! small changes is the ONLY way to go, keep strong and keep in mind that it takes 90 days to break any habit and it is better to make small [life] changes over the space of a month than trying and failing to give everything up at once.

TRUST ME ON THE DIARY, a few works a day to keep yourself in check- I would definitely not have made any of these changes without it. It makes me realise things about my habits as I go along.

(all of this works, try it for one month and you will see clarity and plumpness in your skin that will make all the difference!)

- Also I have just started face yoga, I came across Youtube videos of a Japanese woman called Fukimo Takatsu who has a specific exercise for plumping your cheeks.

I hope this helps others as much as it has helped me!

Also to the lady who posted the Natto comment, the research looks very convincing for helping flat faced folk, definitely going to try that (although it certainly looks like an acquired taste).

Others of this genetic disposition people might agree with me that I feel people are colder towards me initially before they get to know me because of it. Going to consider subtle cheek implants (the smaller the better as too large for the face and it looks MORE aging, obvious and bizarre- better safe than scary! - see Carla Bruni and John Hamm's partner)

If there was an answer for this, there wouldn't be as many people injecting their faces with filler fat extracted from their butts. That said, you could try a collagen supplement which may improve the overall health of your skin, or eating the skin on chicken, organ meats, etc., things that contain collagen.

I wish I had your problem! I have fat cheeks and I HATE them. REALLY HATE THEM, because they are paired with a small chin

Anyhoooo...there is no way to add fat to your face. Gain 5lbs and wait for the skin to tighten a little, and it should look better. There's a reason that they say that after 40, you have to chose between your ass and your face

If all else fails, there's always radiesse

Have some patience. My face looked quite gaunt after I dropped 30 lbs. It seems to have 'settled in' to my new weight since then.

I have seen claims that 'loose skin' is actually skin plus traces of sub-cutaneous fat that hasn't gone yet. Don't know if this is true but it would explain my experience.

PS: I'm 56, you may have a lot more elasticity tham me.

That's not how it works. If your face looks gaunt, since you're already quite slim for your height, I'd try to regain some weight. Just 5 lbs to start and see if you look healthier. I was 95 lbs for a while as an adult and my face was also painfully thin. Now I'm around 105 and my face looks glowingly healthy. Rounded cheeks are beautiful, and while I'm assuming you're on the younger side, nothing ages a woman more unflatteringly than an emaciated face, no matter what the rest of her looks like...

I "lose/gain" in my face first, and it's probably just water retention. For me it's absolutely associated with higher carb levels than my normal. It always happens when I go off the paleo wagon.

So I dunno -- drink a lot of booze? Just kidding. Maybe you need to up your carbs as a % of total calories. Have a few extra potatoes.

But no idea where that's gonna end up on your body.

I feel ya. Paleo made my face all skinny too. Just recently I was off in the woods for a two weeks. Consumed oatmeal and rice daily. Face chunk'd right back up. I miss that face.

Push-ups on a daily basis.

Wall-hand-stands weekly.

Eat junk food (milk chocolate, potato chips, cake)

Eats carbs. My face goes boney if I'm strictly paleo or keto diet.

Junk food - really? There are plenty of carbohydrate and fat dense foods out there that aren't total crap!

Two words: heavy cream. Basically anything with a high fat content. Eating fat = makes you fat. It's not rocket science.

I eat fat and don't gain weight. So why would eating heavy cream spot add weight?

Trolling at its finest.

So if fat makes you fat, can someone eating 1200 total calories (say....80% from fat) get fat if their BMR is 2000 calories?

Given that your user name is CICO Suave, I sense some serious cognitive dissonance coming from your post.
