Sagging jowls are a common problem for both men and women. Unlike other visible signs of aging, jowls can have a negative impact on our appearance from every angle. The bothersome condition can be extremely irritating for many and isn’t something that can be addressed through diet and exercise.
At Stein Plastic Surgery, a facelift is our go-to procedure for total facial rejuvenation. Patients are able to contour the face, neck, and jawline with a single facelift procedure. Today, we’ll take a closer look at three ways a facelift procedure can help you improve the appearance of sagging jowls.
*Individual Results May Vary
Lift Sagging Skin and Jowls with a Facelift
A facelift procedure is ultimately designed to tighten and remove excess skin on the lower third of the face including the neck. During the procedure, Dr. Stein uses the latest surgical techniques to minimize visible scarring, discomfort, and recovery time.
Facelift Surgery Can Remove Excess Fat Pads
Dr. Stein is also able to thin excess fat pads that contribute to jowls and the dreaded double chin. By sculpting deep tissue, he can produce a dramatically younger-looking appearance without being looking ‘overdone.’
A Facelift Tightens Underlying Muscles
This is an essential step in the facelift procedure if you want to achieve remarkable long-lasting results. You’ll get a more contoured appearance than with lifting alone. When done correctly, a facelift with muscle tightening can last upwards of 15-years or more.
The ideal candidate for a facelift procedure is someone with moderate to severe signs of aging on the lower third of the face. Patients should be non-smokers, in otherwise good health, and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for them.
Dr. Stein has helped well over 1,000 patients reach their desired goals and is considered one of the area’s premier facial plastic surgeons. He crafts a personalized treatment plan for each of his patients. If you’’re considering a facelift to finally rid yourself of unwanted sagging jowls, you can rest assured you’re in good hands with Dr. Stein.
