    I was curious, I've seen tons of celebrities who had like either puffy,chubby or just had baby fat on their face. You later see them and they have very defined faces and structured, now obviously some of them use plastic surgeory but I'm talking about the ones who didn't.

    I seem to have more of a puffy face even though I think I'm in decent shape, obviously a large part is genetics since my friend who is like extremely out of shape and is fat has a quite a defined face.

    I have gained about 15 pounds in the last few months, people said I used to have more structure to my face but since I gained weight my face looks puffy. Any ideas on how to get that structured look?

    Essentially, lose weight. Some people gain weight in the face first, then the stomach, butt etc. That being said, some people (like your larger friend) have genes which make them not accumulate much fat on their faces.

    TONS and TONS of cardio work-out and really altering their diet.

    Otherwise, if you've seen their pics from a magazine spread, it's called Photoshop.

    There's a procedure that can slurp fat out of certain parts of your face or body to redirect it to other parts. Oprah's current face has been augmented by more procedures you can shake a stick at. Sophia Loren is completely manufactured, even though a provincial yutz might believe her story about beauty from olive oil baths.

    You can have implants glued onto your existing cheekbones to make them look higher, but then you'll have to put an implant in your chin to balance things off. When I was modeling, I heard stories about girls having their back molars extracted to make the hollows of their cheeks a little more pronounced. I would say more often than not, these celebrities you speak of have had procedures to achieve their looks. Celebrities are mocked by everyone for getting plastic surgery, and also made fun of when the public thinks they need plastic surgery. Vanity creates some bitterly ironic bedfellows.

    I don't mean to sound flip, but you should lose the 15 pounds. If people are noticing (and telling you--how rude) that you look puffy, it is because you are 15 pounds puffier. This is a no-brainer. If you lose the weight, you'll get that structured look that you were most likely born with.

    Its those celebrities job to look good on demand.

    A good friend of mine is an actor who took a major role in a movie. He was basically paid by the studio for 10 months to do nothing but work out 8-10 hours a day under the instruction of a private personal trainer and a private nutritionist chef.

    Even before that particular role he had thousands of dollars worth of cosmetic and dental surgery done.

    Unless you are trying to compete, don't buy into the 'look' nonsense. Those models and actors pay for it with their lives.

    Don't worry about impossible standards.

    If your friends are saying you look heavier - and you think you are - then lose the 15# and get back to the way you want to look.

    tofu your crazy

    Sophia loren has always been skinny so she really could have never gotten plastic surgery. women post menopause often will have fat distributions change so her face can be naturally more angular than it used to be and if she never had a lot of weight the skin would not be saggy.

    As for Oprah girl is fucking ugly without her makeup. Shes hideous, if she had work I am sure she would look better. she may have had a nip or a tuck but she aint all plastic

    Most men also tend to appear a little more "chiseled" with age. I look at my graduation photo from twenty-five years ago and I can't believe how much fatter my face looks, even though I was forty pounds lighter than I am today.

    I think you maybe making too much out of nothing. I see that you are 20. Many men are still maturing at this age. I work with a lot of college athletes. I notice when I see them say, when the are 30 or so, their faces look different. (I am referring to the guys who stay in shape and weigh about the same.) These guy's faces are more "cut" and angular.

    So, I think that time will help you out a little on this.

    Between 23-26 your face will definitely thin out. But your face is not puffy, it's great, I mean, you have that defined jawline, you could easily be a model.
