What Are My Options For Getting Rid Of My Sagging Jowls?

Q: Dr. Eppley,  I am a 50 year-old female. I am bothered by sagging jowls. What are the various procedures and how much do they cost ?

A: There are a variety of options available for sagging jaws from non-surgical (Exilis radiofrequency) to different types of jowl lifts. Which one is best depends on how much jowl sagging one has. While I don’t know what you look like, it is more likely than not that you probably need some form of a jowl-neck lift (which is really known as a facelift) based on your age/ Whether this is a more limited variety or a fuller neck-jowl lift (facelift) again depends on how much jowl sagging you have. If you could send me some pictures, I can answer that question based on this visual information only. Once we know that then accurate surgical costs can be provided.
