Jowls

Introduction to Jowls

Jowls are bags of saggy skin on the neck, just below the jawline and chin. Almost everyone develops at least minor jowls as they age and their skin becomes less elastic but hardly anybody likes them.

The most important reason for jowls is natural aging. Although we can not reverse aging, we can surely get rid of the jowls and make you look younger again.

Jowls may also appear after sudden weight loss. Presence of excess fat on face results in more skin. When the fat disappears the skin is left behind and it eventually sags to form jowls.

At Kalpana Aesthetics we evaluate the entire face as a whole and suggest the best customized treatment plan for you.  



Factors causing Jowls

Aging : During the natural process of aging the skin gradually looses collagen and elastin fibers which give strength elasticity and tightness to the skin. The skin gradually thins out. The face looses soft tissue and fat. The holding ligaments of the skin also become lax and as a result skin sags down to form jowls.

Genetic makeup : Shape and position of various parts of the face is also linked to our genetic traits. Like the shape of the nose, eye color, eyebrows, lips etc. Some people develop jowls earlier and deeper than others depending on their skin type.

Smoking : Smoking accelerates the natural aging process by restricting the blood flow to the skin. this increased aging of the skin as decreased collagen and elastin fibers resulting in loose wrinkles skin.

Rapid Weight loss : Sudden decrease in body weight results in loss of fat volume and sagging of skin. If the skin is already loose it is not able to retract properly and such people form jowls on sudden weight loss.  

Treatment depends on the skin type and size of jowls. If the skin is relatively tight the non surgical options such as Filler injections and RF skin tightening may give desired results. If the skin is moderately tight and the jowls are big enough then Liposuction procedure gives good results by eliminating the collected fat in jowls. In very loose skin condition Face lift and Neck lift surgeries are the only way to get the desired results.
