If you are worried about your face appearing fat or overweight, there are steps that you can take to treat this. MySkyn Clinic in Bradford offers a facial treatment that directly targets jowls and the double chin, contouring your bone structure and rejuvenating your appearance.
As we age, our skin produces less collagen and therefore loses elasticity. Loose skin develops, which can make the face look fuller than it really is.
Likewise, some people who struggle with their weight can develop a double chin or excess volume around the cheeks and jaw. Fatty tissue builds up that can be difficult to get rid of.
If this applies to you, Bradford MySkyn Clinic offers a weight loss management and lifestyle/diet advice service that could complement your treatment programme. Sometimes all you need is a little extra help to start down the road to a more confident, slimmer-looking version of yourself.

Why Does My Face Look Fat?
Both age and weight can have a drastic effect on the appearance of the face.
With our body producing less collagen after our thirties, our skin begins to lose elasticity, causing sagging. Loose skin forms below the jawline and ‘jowls’ develop.
In some people, age also causes a loss in bone density, which leads to the face looking out of proportion as volume is lost in some areas and sagging increases. In women, this typically occurs after the menopause.
Lifestyle choices can cause your face to look fatter than it really is. If you are not eating enough nutritional goodness; if you are not drinking enough water; if you drink a substantial amount of alcohol; if you smoke; if you are inactive – then your face may appear bloated or overweight.
Genetics and hormonal changes in the body, as well as some conditions such as hypothyroidism, can lead to overall weight gain, so causing weight gain on the face.
What Does Fat Face Treatment Improve?
Fat face treatment at our Bradford clinic is used to improve the appearance of:
- Double chin and jowls
- Loose skin
- Excess neck fat
- Small/weak chin
- Drooping salivary gland
- Sagging platysma (neck) muscle
Types of Treatment For Facial Fat
Dermal fillers can be used to restore proportion to the face and contour the cheeks or jawline. They target areas in need of re-volumising and erase signs of aging, such as wrinkles or sagging. They are administered via injections of a hyaluronic acid-based solution.
Skin boosters are another type of injectable that contain hyaluronic acid, promoting natural healing in the skin. They reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. They can be used in specific areas, such as the neck and décolletage.
Voluderm is a cutting-edge fractional radiofrequency technology. It uses fine electrodes to deliver radiofrequency to the dermal layer, triggering a natural process of healing in the skin. The skin is rejuvenated, wrinkles are reduced and elasticity returns.
Liposuction is a mildly invasive procedure that involves making an incision on the face to remove facial fat in that area. The fat is suctioned out, but only limited amounts can be removed at one time.
Ultrasound energy can be used to liquefy facial fat deposits in a non-invasive procedure. The destroyed fat cells will be reabsorbed naturally by the body.
There are many varieties of non-surgical face lift that can be used to reverse sagging and restore youth to the face.
