Ozempic face refers to the facial changes that patients who’ve lost a significant amount of weight sometimes experience: primarily a loss of facial fat that can leave the face sagging and looking older. It’s especially common in middle-aged and older patients.
This loss of facial fat causes a gaunt look, contributing to wrinkles and sagging skin around the midface.
