Five common procedures done for the lower face or jowls and neck:

  • Liposuction of neck and jowls
  • Platysmaplasty: tightening the neck muscles
  • Lower Face lift: (SMAS lift), excising muscle and skin
  • Neck lift: excising of excess skin in the neck
  • Chin Augmentation

Choosing which procedures are appropriate for the patient is based on:

  • The severity of skin laxity or loose skin in the lower face and or neck
  • The presence of platysmal banding
  • The amount of fat in the neck or fat in the jowls
  • The realistic time a patient has to recover
  • The cost of the procedure
  • The shape and fullness of the chin.

Dr Ewing will discuss a treatment plan that is personalized to your needs.
