Too Young for Marionette Lines, Drooping Cheeks and Jawline - What Are my Options?
Doctor Answers (2)
Treatment of face
There are many options but hard to say from just one photos and no exam. Jowls can be camouflaged with fillers or improved with a facelift. The neck can be improved possibly with liposuction.
Facelift with or without facial implants
In most aging faces the skin sags and the soft tissue under the skin drops downward because of gravity and weakened supporting ligaments. This can be hastened in some cases by specific types of facial bone structure. Specifically in your case that appears to be a retruded chin bone and a retruded cheek bone. That makes the required treatment less straightforward. If the bones were not retruded the issue would only be soft tissue and soft tissue only procedures such as a facelift would suffice. In your case it is likely that bone augmentation with facial implants as well as soft tissue procedures is required.
