I'm 62. In the last year or so, I have been experiencing horrendous jowling crepiness and excess skin hanging on my neck (Photo)

When to move from non surgical to surgical
Hi and thanks for your question and pictures. It seems that you have reached the point where non surgical intervention has accomplished what it can. If you desire further improvement, I think you are a good candidate for a neck and face lift. Do your research and seek out a board certified plastic surgeon who does a large number of these procedures and you will be in good hands. Best of luck.
What to Do When Non Surgical Techniques Aren't Doing the Job
- botox in chin and DAO muscles, to elevate the corner of the mouth and reduce chin wrinkles
- Filler in mid and lower face, such as radiasse, restylane lyft of voluma in cheecks, back of jaw, along the mandible and the jowls and chin, as well as in the marionette lines to lift and elevate the face and jowels
- A more aggressive laser or radiofrequency treatment to neck and lower face such as thermi tight, infini (aggressive setting) or exillis ultra
- Finally, the new silhouette lift, the non-surgical procedure using sutures made with sculptra placed under the skin and a anchored by bidirectional cones, can create immediate, significant lift in mid face, jowls and neck.
