What is the best procedure to address jowls?
So jowls are a very common, frequent concern that patients have as they age. So it’s basically an excess skin and fat in this area of the jawline that starts building up. Depending on how tight the skin is, we can address jowels sometimes by disguising the jowel along the jawline by placing fillers before and after the jowels, or even a PDO thread, which is a temporary solution to improve the contouring of the jawline. Now, if there is already moderate laxity, so the skin and the muscle is also coming down, the best procedure is a lower face and neck lift, or even a full facelift, depending on if there is also changes in the cheeks. So depending on the solution that the patient is looking for, we can try to do something temporary with fillers and threads or a surgical procedure.
