Sagging skin in the lower face and neck is a natural part of the aging process. As we age, it is natural for facial sagging to occur in this area, giving the appearance that the normal jawline position has dropped and definition of the face has been lost. Also sun-damage and smoking can accelerate the ageing process resulting in a loss of the skin’s elasticity and collagen.
The appearance of aging can manifest in several ways in the neck and lower face.
Loose skin: Commonly known as “turkey neck,” this occurs as skin loses its elasticity and in cases where individuals have lost a great deal of weight. Sagging is usually most apparent along the jowl line.
Fat: A pool of fat under the chin also can cause sagging and give the appearance of bloating.
Banding: As the muscles of the neck weaken with age, the vertical cords of tissue begin to stretch out of shape, causing unsightly bands around the neck.
Why treat sagging skin of the face and neck
Sagging of the lower face – or jowls – and thin, wrinkled skin on the neck are two of the most dramatic signs of age and aging skin.
