Condition

Jowls and Jawline Sagginess

As we age our facial shape changes. This is more apparent when we look at younger pictures of ourselves. Generally speaking in youth we have a fuller triangular face and with age we loose volume (deflation) and our face shape becomes an inverted triangle.

One of the reasons we develop this inverted triangle is because of loss of bony support in the cheek as well as the jaw bone. This is in combination to loss of facial fat and also a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin which reduces its elasticity.

One of the reasons we develop this inverted triangle is because of loss of bony support in the cheek as well as the jaw bone. This is in combination to loss of facial fat and also a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin which reduces its elasticity.

These elements cause more heaviness in the jaw line and a saggy appearance. The most prominent part of which is referred to as the Jowl. This is the element of the sagginess that sits lowest below the chin.

Treatment for jowls and jawline sagginess range from non-surgical face lifting by replacing volume using MD codes and Juvederm dermal fillers and microbotox techniques to formal surgical face and neck lifting techniques.
