How Do You Get Rid of Jowls?


Authored by:

For many people, developing jowls is an unavoidable part of the aging process. Marked by loose, sagging skin that obscures the jawline, jowls can affect self-esteem and give a more aged appearance to the face. Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of droopy skin along the jawline, including non-surgical options and time-tested surgical procedures.

Getting Rid of Jowls

Facelift surgery is often the best option for eliminating jowls. With this procedure, facial muscles and tissue are lifted, allowing excess skin to be removed and exposing the natural contours of the jawline. If additional fat is present, such as submental fullness (double chin), facelift surgery can be combined with liposuction to produce ideal definition throughout the lower and midface regions.

In addition to surgical options, our board-certified plastic surgeon offers a range of non-surgical skin tightening treatments that can be used to improve the contours of the jawline. Some of the most popular include:

In some cases, BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers can help to reduce the appearance of jowls as well. However, non-surgical skin tightening will not typically achieve the same results as surgical options.

Lifestyle Choices That Can Affect the Skin

Several lifestyle choices can amplify jowls on the face. By following some simple guidelines, you can fight this common occurrence. Some easy habits to consider are:

  • Refrain from smoking
  • Minimize sun exposure
  • Choose healthy foods
  • Maintain a consistent weight
  • Improve your daily skin care routine

Improving posture can help as well. Consider the modern phenomenon of “smartphone face.” The more time you spend with your neck crooked forward, the better chance gravity has to pull your skin in that same direction.
