Nonsurgical Lower Face Rejuvenation Is A Viable Alternative To Surgery For Mild To Moderate Sagging & Jowls
Without a photo, I can only comment in general terms. But for someone wishing to avoid the pain, healing and expense of lower face and necklift surgery, several,completely nonsurgical options are available for treating jowls, sagging, neck cords and crepeyness of the neck. Each of these nonsurgical procedures can be performed in about ten minutes, typically evoke an immediate "Wow!" response, and engender little or no downtime.
For straightening a jowly jawline and secondarily improving the upper neck, a nonsurgical jawline augmentation with a volumizing filler would be in order. This might be accompanied, when necessary, with a nonsurgical chin augmentation and, if further jaw straightening is deemed necessary, supplemented by a "Nefertiti Lift" using a neuromodulator, such as Botox.
If the neck still requires further improvement for cords, laxity and creypeyness, The Nonsurgical 3D Vectoring Necklift can be added.
Precisely which volumizers and fillers may be needed for each task is best determined at the time of initial consultation. The individual treatments may be performed at separate sessions, although many of my patients, to save time, opt to have all done in the same treatment session.
For more detailed discussions of each of the techniques mentioned above, check out the archives of Realself.com. And, of course, for an optimal outcome, be sure to consult a board certified aesthetic core physician with experience and expertise in performing all of the above.
Facelift for aging neck, sagging skin and jowls
A comprehensive lower face and neck lift addresses more than just skin tightening. The aging process involves development of inelasticity of the skin in the face and neck, fatty deposits develop in the neck above and below the platysma muscle and the platysma muscle itself shortens, fibrosis and contracts and creates bands due to the aging process. A properly performed lower face/neck lift will involve tightening up facial and neck muscles, tightening up facial and neck inelastic skin, and removal of fatty deposits in the neck. For many examples, please see the link below.

The Lasting Effects of a Facelift
On average the surgical #results last between 4 and 7 years. However, people vary so much from one another, an exact time is difficult to provide. If you wish, you may repeat the procedure at that time. There is always an improvement compared to not having the procedure as the #aging process continues to progress throughout the future. Patients, with very loose skin will occasionally experience #sagging earlier and it may be seen as soon as one year later. Such may require a secondary procedure to tighten the loose skin.
