Q: Would a mini face lift be right for the excess skin and fat on my lower cheeks and jaw line?
I have some extra fat/skin on my lower cheeks. It really covers up my jawline and makes my face look like it’s drooping. Do you think mini face-lift would solve this issue, or would you recommend something else? I’m 23.
A: Thanks for sharing your photos. While they are limited, they do show the concerns you have regarding mild early laxity and fulness in the lower face.
I do believe that minimally invasive options may be best for you including:
- Micro-lipo-contouring of the lower face, jowls, jawline and upper neck for definition and better contour.
- Fat grafting or filler injection of the medial and lateral cheek to fill and lift the skin and return volume to your mid-face.
- Skin tightening with ThermiTite
- Thread lift using PDO, EuroThreads or Silhouette Suspension threads to elevate the corner of the mouth, cheeks and jowls
Non-surgical options will be useful to maintain these results including retinoids, Sculptra and chemical peels.
Please seek consultation form a Board Certified, experienced and highly skilled Plastic Surgeon with non-surgical, minimally invasive and surgical expertise.
All the best!
