Sagging Jowls Treatment
The natural aging process results in a common complaint – the frustration caused by sagging jowls. Regardless of how fit you may be or how young you may feel, sagging jowls can instantly conjure up the image of a tired, haggard appearance.
Sagging jowls are caused by the natural aging process. Over time, the muscles in our face relax and migrate downward. The loss of collagen and fat creates loose skin, which becomes slack and sags. When it droops along or under the jawline, this is called sagging jowls. The necessary sagging jowls treatment will depend on the severity of droopiness.
Facial Fat Transfer for Mild Laxity
If you have mild sagging jowls, facial fat transfer may be an option for you. A natural alternative to synthetic fillers, facial fat transfer uses liposuction to remove fat from one area of your body and injects it into another. This safe procedure can provide dramatic results and restore the lost volume needed to plump up the skin and eliminate the jowl. By targeting the cheek for lift and the jawline for contouring, you can ward off jowls for many years with this long-lasting sagging jowls treatment.
Facelift and Neck Lift for Sagging Jowls
A precision facelift is the gold standard for eliminating sagging jowls. It will also address marionette lines, nasolabial folds and can be combined with other procedures to treat forehead wrinkles, heavy eyelids and eye bags. Dr. Azouz uses a minimally invasive approach to improve results and reduce downtime following surgery.
A neck lift will also address jowls by correcting the contour of the jawline and neck. By removing the skin laxity in the lower portion of the face, and removing the excess skin of the neck, you greatly improve the definition of your jawline. This creates an aesthetically pleasing silhouette and can turn the clock back many years. A neck lift and face lift may be performed together.
