Kenalog Injections are not a replacement for Liposuction

Kenalog is a sterlid and will cause atrophy of the area.  This is not a replacement for liposuction or a surgical procedure such as facelift.  It would be best for you to see a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss all of your options.  

 

Good Luck

Kenalog is not going to be an appropriate means of improving a moderate jowl.  I recommend that you see a facial cosmetic surgery specialist who can assess you and discuss the most appropriate options for improving your lower face.  Options include a lower facelift, facial fillers, chin implant, and lower face liposuction for some.
