Weight Loss Drug Has Scary Side Effect Called “Ozempic Face”
by MLC Posted on January 27, 2023
The latest weight loss trend sweeping the US and social media is Ozempic.
An anti-diabetic drug developed by Novo Nordisk in 2012 for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and as an anti-obesity drug for long-term weight control.
Ozempic is taking over the weight loss game
It has become an extremely popular commodity among the Hollywood elite and ordinary people alike. Due to the increased demand, it became a sensation that there was a shortage of Ozempic.
Novo Nordisk is working to resolve the issue by early this year.
Given that Ozempic is used as a weight loss drug for non-obese and non-diabetic patients, the so-called “Ozempic Face” has developed as a side effect of rapid, drastic weight loss.
Many people who have used Ozempic and similar drugs for rapid weight loss now claim that their face looks older.
“Ozempic Face” is a new side effect of the drug
A woman named Jennifer Berger used Mounjaro (tirzepatide) to lose weight after pregnancy.
He said The New York Times the medicine lost 20 pounds and he loved it.
“I remember looking in the mirror and it was almost like I didn’t recognize myself,” she told the portal. “My body looked great, but my face looked tired and old.”
New York-based plastic surgeon Dr. Oren Tepper said it’s common for weight loss to sag key areas of the face, which can ultimately make a person look older than they are.
“When it comes to facial aging, fat is usually more of a friend than an enemy,” she said. “Losing weight can reverse your biological age, but it tends to turn your face clock forward.”
Chelsea Handler’s voice is off on Ozempic
Chelsea Handler recently opened up on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast about her fear of using and abusing Ozempic.
“Can you believe how many people in Los Angeles use this shit?” host Alex Cooper told Handler.
“It’s going to backfire, something bad is going to happen,” Handler said. “It’s a miracle. It’s too good to be true.”
Several “real housewives” have spoken out about drugs.
Kylie Richards has been accused of using Ozempic for rapid weight loss, which she has repeatedly denied.
“I’ve never tried ozempic and it’s not from plastic surgery,” the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star commented on Instagram.
She admitted that she had a breast reduction in May 2022, but denied using any artificial means to lose weight.

“I’m honest about what I do,” he added. “But if plastic surgery makes you feel better, then expose your sister.”
Richards doubled down on never using Ozempic in another social media post, which read: “I do NOT take Ozempic. Never.”
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Jackie Goldschneider recently opened up about Ozempic, calling it “an eating disorder on a pin.”
Even “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum Tamra Judge commented on “Ozempic Face.”
“I think that happens anytime you lose a significant amount of body fat. However, Ozempic is not the right way to do it! Leave it to the people who need it,” he wrote.
