A sagging jawline is often the first sign of facial aging for men and women alike. The combination of skin laxity and stubborn fat deposits is generally unavoidable as we get older, no matter how well we take care of ourselves. If you have sagging jowls that make you look and feel older than you really are, I have several solutions for you.
*Individual results may vary*
Kybella is the non-surgical option for dealing with unwanted jowls caused by excess fat rather than skin laxity. During a Kybella treatment, one of my expert providers injects the targeted area with a substance derived from a naturally-occurring molecule in the body.
This process normally takes between 15 and 20 minutes. I usually recommend up to six procedures, spaced one month apart. Kybella can leave you with less fat around the neck and chin area, tightening of the skin, and a more well-defined neck and jawline.
It’s a fantastic option if you already lead a healthy lifestyle and want something non-surgical with almost no downtime. However, I don’t recommend it if you’re pregnant, take blood thinners, or have had medical problems in your neck.
KYBELLA, FACELIFT & NECKLIFT
FACELIFT AND NECKLIFT
If you’re after more dramatic results, a facelift may be the procedure for you. During a facelift, I’ll lift and firm your underlying sagging tissues and eliminate excess skin to restore a more youthful appearance. A facelift is a surgical procedure that is often performed with a neck lift. With a neck lift, you can resolve sagging skin on your neck and ensure it matches your rejuvenated face.
When performing a facelift, I’ll make sure to use the precision and artistry necessary to make you look younger without an overdone or pulled appearance.
I recommend a facelift and neck lift if you have skin that has lost its elasticity and caused the tissue to droop and sag. These procedures require general anesthesia and a downtime period, so you need to be healthy for surgery and be able to take time off from work. It’s important to understand that while a facelift does not have the power to reverse the aging process, it can turn back the clock by five, ten or more years.
I had planned long ago to have some cosmetic surgery when I was 55. I did consultations with a number of surgeons before choosing Dr. Brown to perform a facelift, neck lift, blepharoplasty, fat transfer to upper and lower eyes, cheeks, lips, and marionette lines. I am thrilled with the results!!!!
