Be patient: I had the same problem when i was younger and i hated my moon face. Little did i know that as i aged the fat would disappear from my face. Now i think my face is too thin. Consider using make-up to contour the face instead (if you wear make-up) or grow the hair longer and straighter to slim the sides. Otherwise be happy you will stay younger looking longer!

Spot fat loss does : Not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some will probably be facial fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy ; be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed.

A 38-year-old member asked:

Is it safe to apply lotion on a 2 month baby's face?

Yes But.......: Lotion is okay sparingly and only very mild lotions. I often recommend cetaphil or aquafor some creams and lotions can create rashes. Most rashes on the face are caused by their own slobber and contact with linens, blankets and clothing. The rashes wax and wane. Wipe the face often with a wash cloth and this will help too.

Complex question: Chances are, if you have seen a plastic surgeon and they do not want to operate on your child it is because the risks of surgery are greater than the potential benefits. Short of knowing more details and being able to do an exam myself that is the best i can say. Ask your doctors the question. They should be able to give you an answer you can understand. Best wishes.

If a baby falls on its face what should I do?

Evaluate baby: Pick baby up & examine the areas involved. The nose is somewhat rubbery at that age & resilient, if no bloody nose it is probably ok. If eyes, cheeks , face & chin sustained no bruise or cuts , baby may be fine.If baby fell from standing height, the momentum is seldom enough for problem injury.If knocked out in the fall, or a significant bruising occurs, call the kids dr of have him/her seen.

Bumps: You baby may have milia which is harmless benign rash that young babys get. The best treatment is to do nothing at all because they will disappear on their own in a few weeks.
A 20-year-old female asked:

At what age does a baby stop changing physicaly from the face?

Hard to define: The growth of the face and skull continues until the age of 9 yrs before the growth centers fuse. The distance between features, growth of mid-face and fore-face are relatively complete at that point. What one defines as baby vs other stage is a personal call. The facial features and skull continue to change in subtle ways throughout life.
