Face fat treatment options

What causes face fat?

You have dropped some extra pounds and now are able to put on those clothes that have been long-waiting in your closet.


Despite your discipline on your diet and hard work at the gym, your face still looks as if you have the same weight. How could this be?


Weight gain in the face (commonly known as face fat) happens when extra fat deposits build up around the sides of our face, causing it to become gradually more round, full, puffy, and a full-blown moon face.

The truth is that there is no exercise that is going to specifically target the fat on your face.


Also, a person’s facial muscles and overall bone structure play a small part to fat on the face. For instance, faces can appear fuller when the masseter muscles between the jaw and cheeks are overdeveloped.


Occasionally, moon face can be a side effect of steroid treatment or a symptom of Cushing’s syndrome, which occurs when the body is exposed to excess cortisol for long periods of time.


Moreover, smoking, high sodium intake, and canned foods also contribute to face fat.
