Sagging Jawline Options
Great question! Based on the photos you provided, you appear to be an excellent candidate for NovaThreads, a non-surgical lifting technique. Novathreads are composed of dissolvable PDO suture material that is placed under the skin to procedure temporary lifting results (approximately 9-12 months). The procedure is easy, and performed under local anesthesia in the office. Most commonly, this procedure is used to improve the appearance of the jawline and minimize jowls. Alternatively, you may also be a good candidate for ThermiTight, a procedure that utilizes heat and radiofrequency to tighten the jawline. Both of these procedures are considered non-surgical with little/no down time. I recommend consulting with a board-certified specialist who will be able to evaluate you in person and discuss treatment options that will help you achieve your desired aesthetic.

Indications of a Facelift vs Nonsurgical Candidate
It is important to understand that facelifts are meant to remove major folds and wrinkles, not fine wrinkles. A facelift which removes every line and fold would be too aggressive and would result in an unnatural result. Fine lines and #wrinkles are better addressed by skin treatments such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion, which we also offer at our office.
During your #consultation, your skin texture and elasticity, as well as your underlying skin structure and your facial bone structure will be evaluated. Based on this evaluation, your board certified plastic surgeons will create a custom surgical plan, detailing specific techniques and recommendations to meet your goals. In doing so, he or she should be sure to have a full understanding of what results you expect. If you are not a #candidate, your surgeon can make other suggestions to address your concerns and objectives.

You should seek a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon(s) with experience in different surgical and non-surgical techniques before making final decision. Good luck.
