What are Jowls?
With advancing age, the natural volume in our faces begins to diminish and the youthful firmness is lost. This results in loss of definition in the lower face, producing jowls and a sagging jawline. Jowls and jawline definition are an early tell-tale sign of ageing and can often be distressing to younger patients. As the volume decreases and the skin begins to sag, it tends to gather around the jowls. The natural definition And youthful proportions are lost, producing a square-looking face and sagging jawline.
Treating them is challenging and requires a good understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the ageing face as well as advanced skills in non-surgical and surgical cosmetic corrections. The goals of treatment are to tighten the jawline, reduce the jowl and restore the natural balance of the face.
