I had significant weight loss over quite a small period,

Patient : I had significant weight loss over quite a small period, about 6 stone in 5 months. I now weigh 8.10 stone and am 5"5 and female. I have found that my stomach has become very skinny, to the point of my ribs sticking out, but that my face has remained, now disproportionately, very fat. Why is this and how can I sort it out? I don't want to lose more weight because of my ribs.
