Aging Of The Jowls
AGING OF JOWLS (SAGGY JAWLINE)
WHY DO JOWLS MAKE A FACE LOOK OLDER AND IN WHOM?
AN ANALYSIS OF AGING JOWLS
Slimmer faces may show aging jowls earlier than patients with fuller faces:
“Well, the last time I had a picture taken I could hardly see my eyes because of the weight of heavy eyelid. Then I paid attention to how I was actually using my eyes and I really noticed when I was looking at anything especially the computer I was straining my forehead to see better. Since I have had it done I no longer have to lift the forehead and tilt my head to see. It is amazing! I love…” D. Rock 63 Yrs Old with Fat Droopy Eyes – Salt Lake City, UT
HOW DO JOWLS AFFECT THE PERCEPTION OF THE FACE?
HOW DO JOWLS MAKE OUR FACE LOOK OLDER?
Jowls (aging jawline and age-related jowls) make the normal inverse triangle upright, thereby making the face squarer and more masculine. The sagging jawline with the aging jowls is often noticed earlier by slim patients.
Not ideal in a female face.
AN ANALYSIS OF WHAT CAUSES AGING JOWLS
HOW DOES AGING AFFECT JOWLS?
One only really appreciates the crisp, beautiful, firm, jawline when one loses it. Anatomical changes related to aging result in the loss of this crisp jawline, with the earliest appearance of what is termed the jowl. There is an anatomical explanation for why this occurs. The very beginning of a jowl is what one often notices in the late thirties and early forties, exacerbated in the fifties and fairly prominent in the sixties.
In men as well as women, the jawlines (and the neck) are everything. EVERYTHING!
EFFECTS OF JOWLS ON THE APPEARANCE OF MEN AND WOMEN
Jowls and necks also go together: jowls that occur with age may be “hidden” by full necks. Therefore, if only a limited necklift procedure is performed, the jowls can be revealed. Therefore, it is best to address the lower face and neck together.
Sometimes, one can age gracefully, but perhaps with the help of an “invisible” plastic surgeon:
Our anatomical studies of the jowls and the neck line have shown that unlike what has been heretofore accepted, there is an actual accumulation of subdermal fat in the area we call the jowl. Therefore, unlike most surgeons who try to remove or reduce this fat by liposuction, we actively remove this with meticulous dissection. This has given us what can only be described as stunning jawlines and necks:
