My lower face has dropped. I am 39 lost a stone last summer

Customer Question

My lower face has dropped. I am 39 lost a stone last summer and used the cross trainer. My face goes in at the sides you can see my skull shape, I now have flat cheeks and jowls which I never had before. This has happened within 8 months. I think its my facial tissue that has dropped, will this bounce back. I think its been truma from the cross trainer going up and down.

JACUSTOMER-qyolbml6- :

This is more then weight loss. My face has dropped and its a funny skull shape. Could it be facial tissue damage, or nerve damage.From the cross trainer? I only lost a stone. I need more information then weight loss.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

This is more then weight loss. Could this be a nerve damage or facial nerve damage.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
no, it would not be from facial nerve damage

if you had facial nerve damage you would not be able to smile or chew
