The type 2 diabetes medication Ozempic has taken over Hollywood.

The popular drug is used to promote weight loss by mimicking the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1)  hormone. As its levels increase, the molecules send signals to your brain telling you that you're full.

While it may seem safe to use, many have reported a list of unwanted side effects associated with Ozempic, including pancreatitis, gallstones, kidney problems, and blood sugar issues. Plastic surgeons are warning that it's causing users to look worn-out and gaunt, dubbing the look "Ozempic face."

“Ozempic face is essentially the same characteristics that we see when patients have rapid or regular weight loss,” said Dr. Smita Ramanadham, a plastic surgeon in New Jersey. “We see a loss of volume in the face, and when we lose fat in the face, we see signs like the cheeks are more sunken in, more sagging skin, and a general hollowing out of the features.”

The New York Post insinuates that Jessica Simpson may have utilized Ozempic for weight loss, noting that she dropped 100lbs from 2019 to 2020 despite denying ever being on it.

Even Sharon Osbourne admitted that she's now "too skinny" after using Ozempic to lose 30 pounds.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, Pitch Perfect's Rebel Wilson revealed that she used Ozempic as a way to maintain her weight. "Someone like me could have a bottomless appetite for sweets, so I think those drugs can be good," she told the outlet.

Another alleged user, Scott Disick, has TikTokers questioning if he's okay after a paparazzi photo displayed him looking thinner than usual.

"What is going on with Scott Disick?" asked @mercurialsarah on the platform, showing a photo of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star. His latest appearance is so shocking the influencer felt inclined to look into astrology for answers. According to the Daily Mail, however, surgeons suggest that other factors could be at play, including the use of "drugs aggressively."

Is being skinny worth it even if you're risking looking significantly older? Dr. Ramanadham added, "Sometimes, it can have the effect of actually making a person look older – because the fat in our cheeks is what gives us a more youthful look."
