WHAT IS IT:
Fatty deposits and sagging around the lower face and under the chin.
Fat and folds can accumulate in the submental and jawline area as a result of the forces of gravity and other factors. These changes may result from a decrease in skin elasticity, and fat pads and underlying muscle tissue slipping into a lower position on the face. Expert assessment of what has occurred will help decide best treatment choice. Early intervention is always best. The SMAS muscle is especially important and can only be accessed with surgery, thread lifts and high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU).
