What causes droopy jowls?

Jowl appearance is influenced by many different factors, including genetics, sun exposure, and smoking. Hanging jowls develop naturally over time due to the loss of proteins, elastin and, collagen. Aging causes our facial skin to loosen and decrease in firmness. This usually happens as we reach our 40s and beyond. Patients who experience weight fluctuations that affect the face may also develop noticeable jowls below the jawline.

About facelift surgery

Skin tightening surgery has helped countless people look and feel young again. They reverse signs of aging by removing loose neck skin and tightening the underlying tissues. Your procedure can even be personalized based on your unique needs and goals. So, if your main concern is the lower face and jowls, Dr. DeRosa may recommend lower facelift surgery. If you are seeking an overall younger appearance in addition to treating hanging jowls, a full facelift could be a better option.

How skin tightening surgery is performed

Full facelift surgery requires making an incision near the hairline that extends down to the base of the ears. Our goal is to carefully tighten the underlying tissues to create a lifted look. We may even suggest incorporating a supplemental treatment at the same time for more dramatic results. For instance, a neck lift can treat problematic loose neck skin.

After facelift surgery, patients need to be monitored before being released to a close friend or family member. DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery can give you information and resources about healing properly at home. Some swelling is expected, but we can prescribe medications to make you feel comfortable. Results should begin to show once the inflammation subsides.

Can hanging jowls return?

Our facelift surgery is designed to tighten the tissue in the jowls, so they appear firmer and more attractive. Depending on the technique used, facelift results can last for up to ten years or longer in Palm Beach, FL. Dr. DeRosa can let you know how long your individual results are expected to last. However, patients should remember that their faces will continue to age naturally as time goes on. Patients are welcome to return to our clinic for follow-up treatments as needed.
