The number-one cause of sagging jowls (the lower cheek and jaw areas on either side of the mouth) is natural aging. As you age, your face can droop, and the skin also loses vital proteins known as collagen and elastin, that work to keep it firm and smooth.
The body begins to produce collagen rather slowly as you age, or may also stop producing elastin after puberty. This loss allows gravity to affect the shape of the face. Eventually, the facial and neck skins will naturally pull down and cause the sagging because of the presence of fewer proteins to keep the skin firm.
Many patients with sagging jowls and neck opt for a Level III Reflection Lift with Dr. Boggess. The revolutionary Reflection Lift is his own unique approach to a less invasive facelift. Specifically, a Level III repairs moderate to severe sagging in the jowls and neck to erase 5-10 years off facial appearances. This procedure involves a SMAS facelift in combination with tightening of the platysma muscle in the midline of the neck and liposculpting of the face and neck, as needed.
