I wonder of this is officially listed as a side effect. - Matt Appleby

Ozempic face … The diabetes drug Ozempic has become very popular for its weight loss effects, but it's also spawned the term, "Ozempic face." People using Ozempic as a weight loss treatment have lost a lot of weight very quickly, and some have begun referring to the appearance of sagging skin on their faces as "Ozempic face." But experts are chiming in and insist the medication itself does not cause the face to sag, explaining that if someone loses a lot of weight in a short amount of time, they may have a gaunt appearance. A professor at Columbia University takes it even further and says the term "Ozempic face" is the latest derogatory term in a pattern of abuse against people struggling with obesity.
