Well I am not sure how old you are..........there are some physiological changes that come with aging and our skin
Part of it is just a change in our face with less subcutaneous tissue that we are not used to
I am not sure there is much you can do.......though I know alot of women after losing large amounts of weight do go for lifts and tucks.
I always lose on my face first and once I get to a certain point people start telling me it is too much cause I am looking too "drawn".......I think they just aren't used to me without my "full" face.

That's about all I know about that.

Great job with the weight loss!

Keep in mind that you have lost 34lbs!! And therefore the skin on your face isn't as streched out as it once was.
Lost: 140ish lbs
Maintainence: 2 years

Absolutely! The two downsides of losing weight. More wrinkles and less cleavage. Worth the trade-off though.

I am very concerned about the same problem! Made an appointment with the dermatologist to see if there is anything I can do that my insurance will cover. I certainly can't afford a face lift! Share with us if you find any solutions please!

Take the bad with the good. A few wrinkles are worth all of the shedded pounds

Hadenough... I worry about the same thing. I have always taken good care of my skin and stayed away from the sun. I am 38 and can easily pass for 28 so I am worried about the same thing once I lose more weight.

Microderm abrasion is supposed to do wonders but it is pricey. There are various peels too but I am not sure what they are. Let me know if you find something good

Yes! I look much more wrinkly. I am hoping that my skin will catch up. I am trying to take fish oils to improve the condition to see if that helps.
