This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions on various surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation, including fat transfer/fat grafting, browlift, blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery), facelift, etc. Also, this category includes questions on hand rejuvenation via fat grafting. (Of note, Dr. Lam does not perform body rejuvenation except for hand fat grafting)
actually, no. the jawline works very well. it just is hard to predict when it comes to trying to completely knock out the jowl without a facelift. i think the mini "jowl" that shows up in the 30s and 40s in most cases can easily be significantly improved with fat grafting and a facelift is excessive. however, in SOME 50 plus year olds a facelift can help a lot. it really depends on the size of your jowl and your anatomy to make that call. if you and i are on the fence with it, i usually err on the side of being more conservative and just doing with the fat transfer. everything i do is a case by case situation.
