Anti-Aging Procedures for the Lower Face

Undergoing a traditional facelift is an excellent option for the lines, wrinkles, and sagging that affect the middle of the face. Yet many patients suffer from aesthetic flaws that affect their lower face. Sagging cheeks, jowls, a slack jawline, and loose skin around the neck can leave you looking old and haggard. Thankfully, the Philadelphia, PA cosmetic surgeons at Jefferson Plastic Surgery can help.

Below is a brief rundown of helpful anti-aging procedures that can enhance the appearance of the lower face. We can determine the right treatment for you and your needs when you come in for a consultation.

Lower Face Lift

The lower face lift is a surgery that specifically targets sagging jowls and a loose jawline. These parts of the face are often adversely affected by the aging process. Using incisions around the lower portion of the ear, plastic surgeons can adjust the underlying structure of the lower face, remove loose skin, and leave you looking younger and more refreshed.

Chin Augmentation

If your chin lacks prominence, chin reshaping and augmentation can help enhance definition and even defy advanced age. Using a custom facial implant, a plastic surgeon can alter the shape of the chin and possibly give you a much younger appearance. Facial implants for the cheekbone area can also have some anti-aging benefits.

Neck Lift

Loose skin of the neckline is a common problem for people later in their lives. This is why the neck lift is such a crucial anti-aging procedure. The neck lift helps remove the loose skin of the neck, tightening up the neckline and helping patients appear far younger. It’s not uncommon for the neck lift to be combined with the lower face lift for dramatic anti-aging results.

Facial Liposuction

People often think of the gut or the love handles when they think of liposuction for targeted fat removal. Yet liposuction can be performed on all parts of the body with unwanted fat or flab, which include parts of the lower face. Facial liposuction around the jawline could be all you need to have a more youthful-looking face.

Laser Skin Care

In addition to the surgical procedures listed above, state-of-the-art non-surgical treatments can work wonders for the lower face. Both ClearLift™ laser skin resurfacing and Pixel Perfect™ laser skin resurfacing can help remove lines and wrinkles while also promoting the production of collagen underneath the skin. This helps add youthful volume and suppleness to the lower face, which is lost during the aging process.

Creating a Custom Anti-Aging Treatment Plan

As you can see, there are plenty of options for rejuvenating the lower face. During your visit to the practice, we can discuss various procedures and which one may be most beneficial for you and your needs.
