What is a lower facelift?

A lower facelift addresses the bottom third of the face to tighten the jowls and eradicate a double chin in order to achieve a defined, rejuvenated jawline. Wrinkles and lines are softened, while the neck is firmed and contoured.

What does a lower facelift address?

  • Jowls
  • Loose neck skin
  • Poorly defined jawline
  • Wrinkles, folds, and creases
  • Downturned corners of the mouth

What happens during the lower facelift procedure?

Because the surgery is so focused and streamlined, less scarring and recovery time is needed. Incisions are placed inconspicuously behind the ears and are not visible, even when wearing the hair in a bun or ponytail. The average age for a lower facelift is 40-60, as these clients are only just beginning to experience the signs of aging.

During the procedure, local anesthesia and sedation can be used instead of general anesthesia. Dr. Afrooz will tighten the underlying SMAS muscles, or the Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System. This network of muscles and connective tissues lies under the skin but over the facial muscles, forming the framework of the face. Dr. Afrooz will focus on the muscles in the jaw area that have loosened and caused sagging in the neck. Excess skin and fat are then removed, leading to a more youthful appearance overall.
