As you get older the neck, chin and jowl regions start to get lax. Sometimes this happens before the rest of the face. If you are lucky enough to start rejuvenating lasers as early as possible in your life you can prevent this from happening for many years.
Otherwise your best option is to do a Mini-Facelift.
This surgery is combined with removing of the fat from the chin, neck lower face and jowls and subdermal laser tightening. It is done entirely after local anesthesia. Therefore no risk to your life. Patients are able to go home the same day and return to work next day.
Results can be remarkable. The stitches mostly are kept under the skin and only the ends of the stitches are removed in ten days. Rest of the stitch stays under the skin to ensure formation of a good scar without hypertrophy or keloid.
