How to Treat Sagging Jowls
As we age, it becomes common for the skin to lose its firmness and elasticity. This is because collagen production levels start to dip, causing the skin to become looser and less likely to recover its firmness. As a result, many areas start to show signs of aging – including the jowls and neckline. Sagging jowls are one of the most common symptoms of aging – and unfortunately, they can also be the most embarrassing. Sagging jowls can make you feel older than your actual age, as it weakens your jawline and creates excess skin around the neck. What’s more, sagging jowls are often accompanied by neck bands, which are visible muscles running vertically down the neck. While sagging jowls and neck bands might feel like a permanent part of your visage, the easiest way to treat these signs of aging is with a facelift procedure with Dr. Corbin. Frederic H. Corbin, MD is a distinguished board-certified plastic surgeon practicing in two locations: Beverly Hills and Brea, CA (also serving the Orange Country area). For over 25 years, Dr. Corbin has been providing patients with superior treatments and procedures that help treat sagging jowls. With Dr. Corbin’s expertise, patients have been able to enjoy a younger-looking face with a clearly defined jawline and neck. During the facelift procedure, Dr. Corbin will make small incisions around the ears (in the hairline). Dr. Corbin will then pull the facial muscles taut to create a tightened look. The end result is a natural-looking facelift that will leave your friends and family members guessing.
Another surgical option for combating sagging jowls is an extended neck lift. Unlike a facelift, where incisions are made in the hairline, the extended neck lift focuses specifically treating jowls and neck with incisions no higher than the mid-face. For younger patients interested in treating sagging jowls, facial fillers might be more appropriate than a facelift. However, the best method for treating this cosmetic problem will be determined during a consultation with Dr. Corbin.
