My face is too

I've been fat my whole life, About 2 years ago I had lost alot of weight and got down to 120 pounds.Over a healthy period of time with diet and exercise. But the problem is I lost my plumpy cheeks. My eyes just look so hollow and my whole face just looks long and narrow. Any tips on how I can get the plump in my face back, I look like I've been on something...

  • I lost weight after I had my DD almost 4 years ago and I feel the same way. i like my body better but not my face. I just had pictures taken and when I saw them, I wanted to cry. It makes me look older than I am because my face sags and it shows my wrinkles.

  • I agree that you may need to put on a few more pounds if you're looking too gaunt.

  • CONGRATS!!!!!! Totally awesome. You must feel like your ontop of the world. My advice is unfortunately you cant put chubbiness back into your cheeks naturally unless you gain some weight back OR!!! consult a plastic surgeon. EeeeeK! But Im sure you are secure enough to NOT go that road. Im sure you look great. You just not use to your face. It will take some time. Hope you figure it out. :)

  • You may have to learn to live with it, or get a professional to show you how to make it look fuller with make-up. Sorry, but you cant just make your face only gain some weight. Unless you go to a plastic surgeon.

  • creams? How long has it been since you lost weight? It might just take some time for your skin to pick back up again. congratulations on your weight loss!!!
