I'm 58 yr old female with fallen jowls, hooded eyes, sunken cheeks, and wrinkles. What treatment would you recommend?
Doctor Answers 12
However, I highly recommend that it be done when a patient is in a good place emotionally, socially, financially and of course in good physical health.
Doing such surgery in a depressed state of mind is not going to make one feel better.
I wish you well in your life.

Stop smoking then address concerns
Turning back time after tragedy
- I am sorry life has been so hard,
- I hope you have stopped smoking - important for a good surgical result,
- Your description suggests that blepharoplasty, fat transfers, a mid-face lift and face/neck lift
- Combined with skin care and at a later time, a resurfacing peel or laser might restore your looks.
- Best wishes.

Correction of jowls, eyelid hooding and sunken cheeks
However you need to consult a plastic surgeon for an in person examination and consultation.
It is essential that you refrain from smoking or taking nicotine and any form for at least 5-8 weeks before facelift surgery.

I Am Feeling and Looking Aged? What Surgery Do You Recommend?
It is good to quit smoking since smokers age about ten years faster than their twins, studies have shown, and smoking makes facelift surgery more prone to skin necrosis.
All of these issues would be addressed when you have an in person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon

You give a lot of information about both your physical state and emotional contributing history. All these things will help you and your Plastic Surgeon put together options of what is best for you physically and fits your state emotionally.
It would appear from your information that you will benefit enormously from a facelift with eyelid tuck(blepharoplasty). However, that's just based on the little information I have at hand.
I recommend you sit face-to-face with a Plastic Surgeon. Let him accurately assess your face and neck, and listen to your concerns and who you are. That way he can discuss with you, and arrive at options for your treatment. Even with the best of intentions, an online forum cannot give you appropriate and accurate assessment.
As Specialist Surgeons, we have a whole repertoire of surgical and non-surgical options available. You may be best treated with some combination of these.
I hope I have been of some help. Good luck in your search to find the best alternatives for you.
