Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding a Face Lift at 42

Q:  I am 42 and have jowls .. is it time for a facelift? I just had 11/2 syringes of Voluma in each cheek but still have these awful jowls.

A:  Thanks for sharing your photos! Using only the photos I might suggest:

  1. ​ZO Skin Health for skin tightening and pigmentation control
  2. mini-lipo-contouring of the jowl
  3. filler or fat grafting to the cheeks and / or
  4. Silhouette InstaLift for a non-surgical soft tissue lift
  5. TCA or Controlled Depth chemical peel

If you have less than an inch of pinch along the jawline, the advantage of a facelift which is to remove skin laxity is lost so consider minimally invasive and non-invasive options. ​

With any option, obtain consultation from a well experienced and talented Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. I hope this is helpful. All the best!
