“Ozempic Face" is taking over Hollywood !

Why the long face? Ozempic.

Amid the weight loss treatment’s skyrocketing popularity, surgeons believe that Hollywood is experiencing a spike in the side effect known as “Ozempic Face.”

Several doctors claimed to the Daily Mail that celebs from John Goodman to Sharon Osborne are among those hit hardest by the alleged condition.

For the uninitiated, some side effects of taking Ozempic include sunken eyes, gaunt cheeks and saggy skin, often making the user appear older and more deflated.

I heard a doctor on the ABC in Australia talking about this, and he said it's true, Ozempic does tend to cause premature facial ageing. But they are not yet sure whether it's something endemic in the drug or just the result of a lot of weight loss, which may be more pronounced if you lose it fast or are already an older person when you begin weight loss. It is certainly true that people who have had bariatric surgery often get a similar look.

It’s a side effect to weight loss regardless of how it was achieved. Just like you can’t spot reduce fat, you can’t choose where to keep it when it comes off. Unfortunately, both the face and butt will deflate along with your moobs, gut and love handles. When you’re older, your skin is less elastic, so you’re left with sagging. Duh.

Ozempic doesn’t eat away muscle mass by itself. It’s simply the combination of patients not eating enough protein and instituting resistance training that leads to muscle loss. It’s such an effective appetite suppressant that you have to force yourself to eat.

r76, except none of that is true. I follow Jillian and listen to her podcast. She spoke out against the producers of TBL and they started a smear campaign against her. The only thing she did was provide them with caffeine supplements which she uses.

Jillian knows her stuff. When I started losing weight, I listened to her podcasts and found some really great tips that I applied to my own journey and they helped. She calls bullshit out when she sees it and one of the things she's stated time and again about Ozempic is that it is unsafe and at some point, people plateau on it. She says if she believed in it, she would be making money off it. One of the doctors who attacked her views on Ozempic, just recanted and said he no longer agrees that it is safe.

You may think Jillian is a bitch and she would be the first to tell you that's a fair criticism but the truth is, she started calling out the show runners on TBL and thought they were doing things to the contestants that were unfair and abusive and they shut her down and took her off the show. She said Bob Harper had no issue doing abusive things to the people and she called him out, too. Jillian has my respect and her methods work, regardless of your personal feelings.

It’s curiously hard to find examples of people who lost and then regained weight on these GLP G-1 RA (Glucagon-like peptide receptor agonist) medications.

One extra thing that would concern me is the ability to absorb medication through your intestines if foods move slower through them.

I’d also watch for any longer term changes in liver function. And I would be really curious to understand if these meds could cause a loss in structural body tissue. By that I mean fat cells that pad and protect organs from trauma. I heard a new story about automobile accident fatalities increasing after high speed crashes due to internal damage to the structures that hold and stabilize vital organs.

You may end up with a thin body. But if that body’s internal architecture is more fragile and less resilient, we may see other conditions arise. I would be really focused on things like the muscles of the heart, and the long term function of the small and large intestine. I would also be afraid to eat food that could begin to break down and spoil inside my digestive tract. I see this creeping uncertainty when dining with people on these meds. Their relationship with food is really strange and complex because they are somewhat “estranged” from their digestive systems. I see people take only tiny amounts of simpler foods, and(one really weird example) eating only the garnish on a plate, and visiting the restroom three or four times during meals.

I know they studied these potentials before authorizing these drugs, but still I can think of so many examples of medications that got “Black Box” warnings and then discontinued because, oops, we discover dangerous side effects over time.

My kidney numbers have improved. A dr wrote on my chart that I had Stage 3 chronic kidney disease. My creatinine has been high (as high as 1.8) and my glomerular filtration rate has been slow. It needs to be 60 or above. At one point mine was 28. GFR has been low since early 2020. Creatine has been high since at least 2018.

My creatine has been normal since I started semaglutide. It’s 0.82. My GFR is 70.

I had been sent to a hematologist because of high wbc in 2018. He never figured out what it was. My pulmonologist said it might be my mild lung disease)… it’s normal now and so is my diff (I was out of whack in all - basophils, eosinophils, monocytes, neutrophils). All normal now. I had a slightly elevated platelet coun5 but I was recovering from the flu.

My liver panel is normal.

I’ve had a high C Reactive Protein since at least 2014. Again, nobody knew why. Since taking semaglutide it’s normal. That’s at least 10 years of inflammation that’s no longer there.

I know each metabolic profile is unique, and positive outcomes like R123 are very promising. I suspect that these meds are becoming a key to a very fast path to a healthier weight range. Staying in that range without these meds may be a challenge to address in 60 weeks, when the meds typically stop working. Maybe these early adopters are pioneers in that they are navigating these newer interventions early in the life cycle of these medications.

It’s a really interesting thread topic. I appreciate the responses above, and Datalounge for presenting a space for this discourse. I really do.

Being fat kills. "Move more" is not an easy plan to follow if you're morbidly obese. What ozempic does is that it is a very effective appetite suppressant, and on top of it, if you eat more than you should, you get violently sick. It's obviously wrong when people who are already slkm are taking it. It's a whole new breed of anorexic people.

[quote] Staying in that range without these meds may be a challenge to address in 60 weeks, when the meds typically stop working

I’ve been on them since January 2023. I’m now on maintenance, which I take every 2 weeks. They haven’t stopped working, I’ve maintained my weight since October 2023.

I don’t mind taking a medication every two weeks. I have to take arthritis medication twice a day and I take blood pressure medication every day (some people can stop taking BP medication when they reach their goal weight. I am not one of them despite my BMI being 22. But my BP is controlled with meds, so I don’t worry about it)

As a diabetic, I've been on Ozempic now for closing in on three years. Hasn't stopped working, but over that length of time it's also gotten me to a healthy weight and also healthier eating habits. I credit Ozempic with probably the first 50 lbs I lost, and better diet/exercise with the last 30 lbs.

R122 I guess I don't understand why you gave me the "oh honey" bit and attacked me. I just made a statement that in a decade we might see that Ozempic causes medical problems we're not aware of now. I didn't get why you thought that made me sound like I was 85. I'm 65, btw.

R131 -

1. This is an anonymous site. Nothing is personal.

2. It was mostly a joke because...

3. The elderly generally hate anything new that challenges long-held conventions. 85 was an exaggeration to drive the point.

Does anyone know if Ozempic is a lifetime plan, or you just take it til you lose the lard then maintain a healthy, active lifestyle? My friend says you have to stay on it forever.

by Anonymousreply 136May 1, 2024 7:33 PM

r136 it's been described both ways from what i've heard. One way it's described is that it will have to be used "for life," but other sources say it's been used as a way to lose the weight, then can be used in a "maintenance way."

Probably at this point, it's really too soon for anyone to know that, as Ozempic was originally studied (and used) for management (and reversal) of Type II Diabetes. The use of it for weight loss is a much more recent thing, so it's doubtful they have enough history/data to know for sure.

by Anonymousreply 137May 1, 2024 7:39 PM

I suspect initially you use the dose that helps you lose weight, then once you've reached your target weight, decrease the dose down to a level where you can maintain the weight.

R138 how marvellously clever you are! I could never imagine it would work like that!

R135 I disagree that because it's an anonymous site, nothing is personal. If it was meant for me, it's personal, not general.

I don't hate anything new that challenges long held conventions, and what I said didn't indicate that I do. It had to do with the fact that fad medicines sometimes prove problematic down the line. The fact that I'm aware of that isn't a product of my age.

by Anonymousreply 140May 3, 2024 8:31 AM

R131 is right. Longitudinal data on meds like these will be interesting and important. Celebrex and Boniva are a few examples of meds that appeared to work better than we discovered later on.

Some of these replies are snippy and dismissive, but I enjoy these threads overall. I can see when several replies are invisible to me and suspect some are posted by the same person, and sometimes a red “troll” citation. Most of us have been blocked or flamed on this site, but it’s still handy and interesting.

R139, there's an idiot on another Ozempic thread whose mother is on the full dose, underweight, severely constipated and living on cottage cheese.

Not everyone thinks themselves as clever as you obviously consider yourself to be, dear.

by Anonymousreply 142May 3, 2024 2:04 PM

R142 That comment, “living on cottage cheese” calls to mind so many of my friends and a few family members whose diets are disturbingly restrictive. And many endure these restrictions with the help of these meds, which in a way are sort of a palliative path to anorexia. Behaviorally, there is a sense of stubborn abstinence. I

worry most about those who drink on these meds, usually vodka and maybe hard seltzers that are carb free. I remember when I was a kid in the 1980’s, a few family friends staved themselves to stay thin by eating no carbohydrates and boiling hamburger to wash off the fats. We saw some scary outcomes (fingernails stopped growling and “sank” into nail beds, their breath smelled like nail polish remover, their skin lost its elasticity, and a few were involved in accidents they could not remember). Extreme diets probably work for heartier people, but most human bodies don’t have that bulletproof constitution.

r143, so many people don't understand that in order to lose weight, one can eat whatever they like. They simply have to eat less of it than they are used to and they have to move their body more. I did this and am almost down 100 lbs. Yes, it has taken 2 years to get here, but I'm never hungry, feel stronger than I ever have been and friends no longer recognize me. Losing weight is remarkably easy when you start to pay attention to calories in, calories out. That's really all it takes, not some $500 a month drug that can fuck you up.

I know someone who has taken off 70 lbs on a compound pharmacy version of a GLP that comes in the mail in special packaging , like an isothermic pouch. On these meds, she looks desiccated and is physically shorter now, losing two inches of height since November (or possibly a few months earlier). Her face has a different geometry and her complexion is darker, a shade like jaundice. She looks like a candle that is melting. It’s pretty alarming. She got the prescription via a telemedicine consultation, and a second and third round from a different telemed provider. Sounds like doctor shopping.

r161 my friend who is taking it has issues with feeling sick after eating just a little. I guess that's how it works but it's not worth feeling like crap all the time in my opinion. I know others who don't have any side effects. At least, they don't mention them.

A fuckbuddy of mine had a great experience that turned nightmarish. As his weight was dropping his dick kept getting bigger. We joked it was only natural because of the fat loss revealing more tube. But he was down to average, nearing thin, and his cock was getting kind of monstrous. He said it was much bigger than when he was 20. Finally at over 10 inches hard, his doctor put him on maintenance dose, but his dick grew another inch. So he stopped taking it all together.

Now it's Ozempic Butt. Ironic thing is that in the article they state:

[quote]'Ozempic face' and 'Ozempic butt' is also not down to the drug itself, but the method of weight loss, with rapid and significant changes in weight causing the skin to sag, which can only be avoided by losing weight slowly rather than all at once. ... Others have also reported the same effect on their cleavage, with 'Ozempic breasts' also becoming a side-effect of the fast weight loss these medications can sometimes create. ... To avoid a saggy butt, Saleh recommended: "Increase of protein in their diet is very important. Increase of exercise, resistance bands. "In terms of the buttocks, [do] more squats, more to increase muscle to compensate really for the fat loss."

Ummm, they're taking these drugs for the rapid weight loss and to avoid having to do any of that exercise or healthy living stuff.
