Top 5 Body Complaints: #2- Jowls

The development of jowls is one of the early signs of aging, along with laugh lines and laxity in the neck (commonly referred to as turkey waddle).  Women presenting with this concern, are unhappy with this change in their facial appearance.  Correcting jowls is generally done as part of an overall facelift procedure, but the surgery may be done alone .  Droopy jowl correction may be accomplished by trimming fat or by repositioning it at a higher level, then adjusting the skin for a more youthful appearance.  Jowls may also be somewhat disguised by injecting fat along the jaw line to plump up the area, or by a combination of the procedures that I have mentioned.  According to  ASAPS statistics, there were approximately 95,000 jowl rejuvenation surgeries performed in the U.S. for 2009, representing a major component of facelift surgery.
