Is there a surgical procedure that would tighten the jowl line without having a total face lift?
The search continues for maximum result with minimal invasion. The jowl results from the changes in contour in the bone, muscle, fat and skin. The changes in the jowl vary widely and the treatment selected depends on the amount of change. For minimal changes, a surface treatment may tighten the area enough to yield improvement. For changes that are more significant, injections and/or implants will improve the area. For the most significant changes, a face-lift is the only way to correct the problem. A consultation with a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only way to answer your question for you specifically.
