How to lose Jowls

Often heavy or fatty jowls steal away the show of your otherwise slim body figure. Or many a times, obese individuals, looking forward to lose some weight, may find it difficult to lose the facial fat. Sagging or loose jowls may also result from a rigorous weight loss program. In such cases, you need a special fat loss and skin tightening program in order to get rid of heavy jowls.

Along with your regular cardiovascular and resistance exercises, facial exercises are important to lose jowls. Here are some easy exercises that may be added to your exercise schedule:

  • Sit or stand upright. Tilt your head backwards, so that you can look towards the ceiling. Now try to push your chin outwards while you such your cheeks inside the mouth. Hold on for 5 sec and release. Make 10 repetitions.

  • You may sit or stand upright while performing this. Place the fingers of both hands on both sides of the cheek bone respectively.  Now try to pull the skin over both cheek bones upwards and open your mouth to form an oval shape. This will make you feel the resistance in facial muscles and will help to lose jowls.

  • Place your fingers on both sides of your lips and pull the corners downwards. Hold on this position and now try smiling with your lips close to create a muscle resistance. Hold on for 5 seconds and then release.

  • Tilt your head backwards while you are seated or standing straight to look towards the ceiling. Pull your lower lip over the upper one as much as you can till you feel the resistance in the neck and jawline. Hold on for few seconds and release. This exercise is helpful in trimming the complete jawline and double chin if any.

  • In a seated or standing position, tilt your head backwards to look at the ceiling. Keep your lips lightly closed and begin a chewing movement. Within seconds you will find resistance in the jaw muscles.

  • Sit or stand up straight and tilt head backwards to look up at the ceiling. Now, pull out your chin and make a kissing movement with your lips. This is a good exercise for all facial muscles.

  • While you are smiling, clutch your lips tight and contract the neck muscles. Hold for few seconds and then release. This can help keep your jowls firm.

  • Lie flat on the bed with your head hanging off the edge. Now, slowly try to bring your head towards your chest. Hold on to this position for 5-7 seconds and get back to the original position.

  • Open your mouth wide as if you are yawning. Repeat this act about 20 times. This is an easy way to lose jowls.

Lifestyle changes to lose excess jowls:

  • Exercising the complete body is important even if you require a spot reduction only on the face. Combine both, a 30 min cardiovascular activity and strength training for another 20 min along with the facial exercises mentioned above.

  • Include healthy foods such as whole grains, legumes, leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts, low fat dairy, eggs, fish, lean chicken, soy beans, etc.  Avoid fried, sweetened, highly salted and preserved or canned foods.

  • Keep chewing sugar free gums as they exercise your facial muscles well.

  • Drink plenty of water to keep your skin well hydrated and avoid water retention which leads to puffiness on the skin.

  • Women should prefer clothing with necklines away from the neck region, that do not draw much attention towards neck and makes it look longer. The more you draw attention towards the neckline, the more prominent  your jowls and jawline would appear. Men should avoid wearing tight ties, that would enhance the bulge.

  • Avoid heavy necklaces or jewellery.

  • Prefer shorter hair cuts that would make the neck appear longer instead of the one's that end at neck level or layers near the neck.

Liposuction for jowls:

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery, used to remove excess fat by insertion of cannula through small incisions made over the skin. Various liposuction procedures such as Laser liposuction, LipoLite, CoolLipo, SmartLipo, ProLipo PLUS, LipoTherme & LipoControl, etc are mostly used for jowls reduction by doctors. Liposuction should be your last option for fat reduction when all other techniques fail. Also, this procedure requires a pre-medical screening. Consult your doctor for the same.

Implement all simple home remedies such as diet and exercise to lose excess jowls, because your perfect slim body deserves a perfect face cut as well.
