The Lower Face & Neck
Although all the above changes make us look older, there is nothing that makes us look like grandparents more than lower facial aging changes Sagging muscles, fat, and sun damaged skin produce bulges at the side of the jawline called jowls.
The same changes occur under the chin and on the neck. The deep support system and skin sag and become excess which produces the vertical neck bands and “turkey gobbler” wattle that can extend from the jaw to the collar bone. Although the media hypes “miracle” devices and surgeries to reverse jowl and neck skin excess, nothing is more natural, predictable and longer lasting than contemporary facelift surgery
. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Contemporary facelift surgeons can increase results and decrease recovery, but two weeks of recovery is not too much to ask for reversing a half century of aging.
