Contour the Jawline with a Facelift in Los Angeles
One of the most troubling developments for many people is the formation of jowls. Jowls are defined as the lower part of the cheek and especially gather attention when that lower portion starts to hang down below the jawline. There are multiple cosmetic surgery solutions for jowls, and the most popular of these is a facelift in LA.
Facelifts are an invasive and involved surgery that should only be conducted by a skilled facial plastic surgeon in Los Angeles or another large city. In most facelifts, two flaps of skin are cut either around the forehead, temples, or above the ears. The skin is then pulled back. An additional incision may be made under the chin if it’s necessary. The excess, saggy skin is then pulled back and sewn in place, thus giving your skin a tighter and smoother appearance.
While that short summary may sound like it’s an easy procedure, it comes with a fair share of risks. Pain, drainage, swelling and bruising can all be expected. Facelifts also require aftercare and lots of follow-up visits, but they’re the recommended solution for sagging skin because their results last so much longer than Botox.
How a Facelift Will Eliminate Jowls
During your face lift in Los Angeles, a skilled plastic surgeon can strategically incise and pull on your skin to eliminate your jowls. A jowl lift in Los Angeles is focused on eliminating the sagging skin on the lower half of your face, but the great thing about a facelift is that multiple issues can be treated, so any crow’s feet or smile lines can also be smoothed out.
The sagging skin around your jowls is part of the complex arrangement of muscles, tissue, and skin on your face; by manipulating these muscles, even ones that aren’t close to the jawline, the sagging skin on the lower half of your face can be eliminated. Many times, in addition to lifting the cheeks, they also benefit patients by reducing the appearance of marionette lines.
The Results of a Jowl Lift
The results of jowl lifts have a very naturalistic look. By tightening the skin on the lower half of the face, a contour is achieved. Many people feel like a good contour completely changes their appearance by adding more angles and definition to their jaw.
Part of the reason facelifts are so popular is because the results are long-lasting. A facelift can make you look decades younger, and you can enjoy your new youthful appearance for years before you feel like you need something done.
Our patients often tell us they finally feel like their insides and outsides match again. It’s a very effective cosmetic surgery in Los Angeles.
While the Los Angeles surgeon is removing excess fat and skin, they can do other cosmetic changes. And even after recovery from a face and neck lift in LA, you can make adjustments.
If your goal is contouring your lower jawline, then your doctor may recommend that you remove fat from your neck area, as this may be obscuring your jawline. Neck lipo will remove your excess fat to further make your jawline appear sleeker.
Something our surgeons have done in the past to help facelift patients is add a chin implant to add more shape and dimension to the face. While it may not seem like it, a chin implant will give a natural and sharper look to your jawline.
In addition to surgery, there are non-invasive anti-aging techniques. One example of this is ultherapy. As the name suggests, this therapy uses ultrasound to stimulate the collagen and elastin fibers in the face to assist with tightening the skin. Laser skin resurfacing is also a great complementary procedure to consider after recovering from a facelift.
