Condition

Saggy Neck

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.

Condition

Saggy Neck

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.

These elements in the lower face cause a heaviness in the jaw line (Jowl) with a saggy appearance, which can extend to the neck from the jawline to the clavicles.

Combined these features are often referred to as a saggy jawline and neck and can occur variably from person to person with age, factor such as sun damage, weight loss, smoking and genetics.

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