You may have your face tilted forward - this shows loose skin not seen in normal positions.
See a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon face-to-face for an exam of your face from all angles.
I have seen early jowls in young women under certain conditions:
- significant weight loss,
- a facial injury that led to severe facial swelling,
- severe sun exposure,
- thyroid conditions, especially hypothyroidism.

Jowls Or Something Else?
What are jowls
Jowl descent is best evaluated on the oblique (3 quarters) view. Jowling tends to be an age-related process and it is unlikely that jowl descent or significant skin laxity would be present at a young age. If you are looking to improve the contour of your jaw and neckline you may want to consider using fillers or fat transfer to create a sharper, more linear shape.
Hope this helps.
