Depending on your unique concerns, you may opt for a specific procedure that is targeted to your concern.
If you are noticing sagging starting from the upper face and cheeks, you can opt for a facelift to help pull up these deep layers to a higher position that is more youthful looking and firm. This is done in a way that not only creates a natural firmer look to the skin, but also supports the deeper layers for a long-lasting result.
Sagging jowls and loose neck skin can be attributed to a number of factors. The most common factors include gaining, weight loss, and genetics. According to aesthetic professionals, your neck tends to show aging earlier than your face. Unfortunately, no amount of dieting or exercise can change your necks appearance. However, a neck lift can rid you of the excess skin and pull it tighter, eliminating jowls, folds, and winkles.
When looking at your profile in a mirror, your chin should project forward as far as the lower lip. If that is not the case, you may benefit from a chin augmentation. Chin augmentation is done using a small implant that increase projection of the chin, creating more balance in the face.
