See below: Facial fat is related to overall body fat. The only way to eliminate fat from the body is to metabolize it (burn it off) or to have it surgically removed (liposuction). The appearance of a 'fat' face may be an indicator of another disorder (cushing's syndrome) if the overall body fat level is within normal limits. An md can evaluate this with lab tests.

Losing weight: We naturally lose fat from our face in the aging process if we keep a stable weight. But we we are overweight , ft builds up in the face and the best way to lose it by weight loss. Liposuction is not a recommended method for the face because too ofter it leaves irregularities which are hard if not impossible to fix.

No, : 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.
