Yahoo investigate how weight loss can be ageing, after Dame Jenni Murray told The Times that she intends to maintain her current weight to avoid ‘diet face’. 

The phenomenon diet face indicates that weight loss can be disproportionately noticeable in the facial features. With major weight loss and for older patients, it can be prematurely ageing.

Experts were invited to comment and explained that the fat pads in the cheeks and lower face shrink and deflate with age, making the skin loose and hollow. This happens to everyone, but for clients who lose weight and fat, the change is more rapid and the effects can be more accentuated.

Anti-Ageing Advice for Dieters

Dr Ross Perry, medical director of Cosmedics Skin Clinics, advises that clients should:

“…never be tempted to retain an unhealthy weight in order to avoid diet face”

Losing excess weight is a positive thing as there are:

“many health benefits from being a healthy BMI”

He advises against crash dieting and promotes a healthy, steady approach to nutrition:

“In an ideal world, maintaining a healthy weight throughout your life is the best prevention”

For clients embarking on a weight loss programme, he suggests:

“…a combination of healthy diet with plenty of protein and vegetables, plus sensible exercise.”

Other tips for reducing the potential impact of ‘diet face’ were:

  • Good hydration (drink lots of water!)
  • Good moisturiser to keep skin supple
  • Daily sunscreen to avoid sun exposure

Treating Diet Face

Nowadays, the cosmetic treatments industry gives clients lots of options for presenting a more youthful appearance.

Dr Perry told Yahoo about CACI non-surgical treatments:

“high-tech treatments like toning with micro-currents can achieve remarkable results in tightening and lifting loose skin”

Other options outlined include dermal fillers to restore volume, definition and support.
