I had a necklift several years ago and the results were great but I’m starting to see the beginning of jowls again. Is there some reason why the results have only lasted a few years and what should I do now?
Individuals age at different speeds. The damage that you have caused to your skin over the years from sun exposure, wind, smoking and even alcohol will contribute to aging of the skin. Genetics also plays a large part in how quickly your skin will show signs of aging. Although I cannot comment specifically on the necklift technique which was used on you in order to rejuvenate your face several years ago, it is very likely that your face has continued to age and your jowls are simply revealing the normal progression of aging. If your jowls are your only issue, ask your surgeon if you are a candidate for a mini facelift procedure.
