    So, does anyone else have a problem with face fat? I understand its genetics on my part, thanks to my dad, but when he was my age he had a decent jaw line. Better than mine atleast. I wanted that adonis jaw, but that doesnt seem to be happening no matter how much weight I lose (which has been around 60-70 pounds). Any one know if facial exercises work? Or will my face slim out last after I lean everything else up? Im looking for responses from people who have had the same problem, not people who will tell me scientific stuff necessarily. I want to hear experiences.

    How can you be sure it's fat?

    damn "60-70 pounds" Wow...good job.

    Really think it's more about diet.
    I see these skeleton faces and more often than not, find out they're either Vegan or on that diet/life style of consuming less calories than it takes to keep your heart beating.
    Good example: look at photos of Ellen over the years.

    Check out this anorexic lady. Her face looks completely normal. For the squeamish, it might help to know that she got help and survived.

    Vegan definitely worked for me. I went from 240 and am now around 185. But I haven't been vegan the entire time, only for about 2 years. But while I was I lost about a pound every 2 weeks like clockwork.

    I also made a point of eating low fat and avoiding sweets and anything with added sugar or HFCS. At the time I didn't know about the glycemic index; if I'd focused on foods with a low glycemic index I'd probably have lost weight more quickly.

    It's funny how differently str8s would respond to your topichttp://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=132707943&page=1

    You look like you have a decent jawline with no double chin evident...but you have a wide face which adds to the illusion of face fat making lower bodyfat levels necessary to take care of this. Most bodybuilders competing onstage have defined jawlines, don't they?

    In short, visible abs = jawline.

    Ah, I have high enough cheek bones in proportion to a good jaw line...and only if I could reach 175 pounds again (or because of age I probably have to get less that that now) to have sunken cheeks again... And with my face, the body could be slightly obese, overweight, and on the higher end of normal weight on the BMI, and my face remains oval and looking the same. k10malau, all of this is just dumb luck... Just simply play with what you already have. See in my case, I'm not doing anything with my face, and at best I only want my mind to be a source of attraction... I'm even a beastly looking man at the moment because of my 7 month beard...

    This was really interesting, thanks and good points! and thank you to everyone else also. It doesnt bother me enough to get lipo-suction and I had heard about facial exercises but didnt really believe them... I guess its just cutting down fat, and my face just seems to enjoy to hold on to it. I know its fat because I can pinch it, it jiggles if I tap it, its not water weight in my face. Thanks for all the advice guys, youre all pretty funny

    But while it does help to have a certain bone structure already...yes, I could see that losing a lot more weight will help you trim your face... And I hate to use myself as an example, as this sounds so wrong...I guess...but I will still have a slim face even when I'm obese and some men are in similar boats to me. Since personality these days is more appealing than looks for me (but problem with that is that I want to possibly maintain my celibacy until I die or marry for children), I wouldn't mind being attracted to a person that has a round or wide face.

    plastic surgens can go through the inside of your cheeks and remove a fat sack that will give you a hallow cheek look. It was very popular in the 80's. However you would want to consult with a good plastic surgeon because you have a round face as opposed to a long face, so the skeletal structure of your skull is round as oppose to long, so it might give your face a little bit of a longer look, but probably not much.

    I have this problem, too. Even at pretty low body fat levels with visible abs I still have pretty full cheeks. I can't stand it. My features don't start looking sharp until I get down under 8% (basically when I'm ready to compete). I have looked into buccal fat reduction procedures and jawline lipo, but the problem there is that as you age your face leans out anyway and I don't want to look hollowed out when I'm older. I suppose I could just accept what I've been given, but that seems quite un-American. icon_lol.gif

    ok take a tip from an actual fat boy ...Im also a designer and I understand the art of illusion ... some people just have round faces your not fat your just a different shape ...some faces are square or rectangular some are triangular and some are round or oval like a melon...the thing to do is create the illusion of being square by putting the outline of a square on your face - you do this by growing a beard and shaving and trimming it into a nice square shape around your face - icon_wink.gif

    After taking a look at you, I'm willing to bet no one else has ever complained.

    Thanks, man. I think as a former fat kid/teen, I still look in the mirror and see that chubby, unhappy kid. Probably always will.

    Chinstraps work wonders. No one would ever accuse THIS guy of having a round face and no jawline:

    Might not be fat. Jaw muscles. U can get botox injections to shrink your jaw line, but it is temporary.

    You'd have to get your BF low to expect any change if its actually "fat". Though you look good as is!
