Jowls, Marionette Lines, Lip Position & Sad Appearance
As we age, loss of mid-facial fat pads leads to a deflated look and descent of the skin and mid facial soft tissue. Deflation and descent leads to nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jowling along with a pull down, sad appearance around the mouth.
Non-surgical correction of jowls to improve the contour of the jawline for a natural, balance look will depend on the degree of facial volume loss and skin quality.
Jowls develop when there is soft tissue descent of the lateral cheek from midfacial volume loss and loss of collagen. Jowls cause the lower face to look square lending a aged look to ones appearance. For long-lasting correction, Dr. Balogun uses Bellafill or Radiesse in front of the jowl and behind the chin prominence to reestablish the smooth contour of the jawline, reducing the appearance of the jowl. Additionally, she restores cheek volume with Bellafill or other soft tissue fillers needed, elevating the lateral cheek fibro-fatty tissue, and eliminating the jowl.
Once lower facial rejuvenation is completed, Dr. Balogun will recommend a streamlined skin care regimen to maintain healthy skin quality.
