Quote: "Many people go through dangerous cosmetic surgery just to get higher cheekbones, sharper jaw line and the dreaded double chin."

Here is a fact that you should take note of. What do you look at first when you meet somebody? You look at their face first right? For example you meet up with old friends, colleagues, your neighbor or new friends, most of the time you will focus your attention on their faces first.

Losing facial fat is a lot easier said than done. Unfortunately for some this is the very first place they gain weight and it's usually the last place it leaves them when they lose weight, whilst many others have an easier time when they try to lose face fat.

Probably one of the best things you can do to actually lose the facial fat fat is to lose weight overall.

If you want to lose face fat, you have to begin with losing weight. This means losing excess water retention and also losing body fat. Usually, when a person loses weight, it is very noticeable that his face also gets sharper and leaner. Focus on eating smarter and a less calorific diet, and once you start to lose overall body weight you will see begin to see you are losing facial fat.

Getting Rid of a Double Chin:

Many people who want to lose face fat have a double chin. If you have a double chin, there is an exercise you can do. Curl your bottom lip over your bottom teeth. Open your mouth wide, and work your lower jaw up and down. This is something that you can do for a few minutes everyday, and it can eventually see some difference in your chin. Chewing gum on a regular basis can also reduce you chin - eventually.

Another method that sounds strange but has been said to work for firming up a double chin: Using the back (top) of your hand, slap/tap the bottom of your chin rapidly yet firmly. Do this often, whenever you think of it.

Sagging Jowls:

Loose, sagging, or jiggly jowls are a result of descending cheeks that naturally occurs with the aging process. When you lose volume in the face, especially the cheeks and jawline area along with volume around the mouth, the jowls become more prominent and look saggy.

A downside to losing lots of weight is the excess of sagging skin that is often left over. A common area for loose skin is on the neck and jaw, which results in sagging jowls. Unfortunately, issues with sagging skin can't always be resolved through facial muscle strengthening exercises, for many people, surgical reconstruction is the most effective way to reduce excess skin on the neck and jowl area.

A pre-jowl implant, fillers or fat injections could help with the loose jowls. Another option is a small surgical tuck up, or mini-lift, jaw-lift, neck-lift, micro-lift to firm up the jowls.

Eat Plenty of Fruits and Vegetables:

Try to eat balanced diet that incorporates all of the food groups with balance. Eat whole grains, fruits and vegetables the most, and meat and dairy a little less. Stay natural and eat at least three servings of fruits and three servings of vegetables every day. This will not only fill you up with less calories and help you stay way from junk food, fruits and vegetables also contains water that can help you stay hydrated. Plus, they are filled with fiber that gives many health benefits. Choose your fruits carefully though; control the amount of bananas, grapes and pineapples because they are high in fructose. Go for apples, oranges, all sorts of berries and grapefruit because they are low GI carbs and they packed full with anti-oxidants.

Reduce Your Salt Intake:

Puffy cheeks and face fat can be the effect from water retention. High intake of salt can encourage your body to store water as salt is an active ingredient that causes bloating or water retention. Avoid salty foods and eat healthy ones instead. If you need to add salt on your recipe, do it with a salt shaker or sprinkle it with your hand instead of a spoon. This way you can control the amount of salt on your food. Getting a sun tan also makes you look leaner and helps get rid of lots of water retention.

Drink Water - Lots of it:

You have to drink lots of water to stay hydrated. Drink at least nine 8-ounce glasses of water a day. Drink more than that if you are an active person and always exposed to the sun. Our body has a natural protective system and when you do not drink enough water, the body will naturally think that you are stranded in a dessert and have not enough water. As a result, it will store as much water as it can to keep you living and that is when you will get bloated. In addition, if you drink enough water, the body will flush out all the unnecessary water because it knows that the system has enough water. Stick to plain water. Sodas and sugared drink do not help because they contain sugar and will lead to bloating and other health issues.

Exercise Regularly:

Regular exercise leads to a leaner body and of course a leaner face. When we lose weight we tend to lose fat from over our whole bodies. If you are overweight, then sensible dieting along with a regular cardiovascular workout will burn fat from all areas, including your face. For some people the difference will be dramatic, for others less so, but all should enjoy some improvement in facial appearance. So burn those calories off and do some aerobic exercises such as jogging or brisk walking. Exhibit an active lifestyle for a slimmer face and body.

Cosmetic Face Surgery:

Many people go through dangerous cosmetic surgery just to get higher cheekbones, sharper jaw line and the dreaded double chin. If you are considering having any costly or invasive procedure to reduce facial fat by cosmetic surgery (or for any other purpose), you need to proceed with caution. Speak to people who've had the same procedure. Research it through the Internet. Get your doctor's opinion, advice and perhaps a referral. Learn about costs, side effects, recovery time and possible complications. Most importantly, gain a realistic understanding of what the procedure can and cannot do for your appearance. That way you'll avoid disappointment.

To Sum Up:

Eat well, drop the sodium and saturated fatty meals. drink plenty of water. Diet and exercise need to be a long term thing, and the lower you get your body fat percentage (BMI), the slimmer your face will become.
