Sagging Jowls

Sagging jowls is an extremely common condition. It will affect everyone who reaches old age, and many people before that. It is characterised by skin around your face, neck and chin having a droopy appearance.

Scroll down to learn more about the causes, symptoms and what effective treatments are available for sagging jowls.

Causes

Sagging skin is a condition commonly caused by aging. As we age, we lose proteins called collagen and elastin in our skin. These are supportive connective tissues that give our skin its youthful appearance. Without them, skin droops and sags. Aside from aging, sagging skin can also be caused by weight loss. This is especially true in extreme cases of weight loss. Pregnancy can also bring about sagging skin.

Symptoms

Sagging jowls appear around your face, neck and chin. It appears droopy, and in some cases sunken. In extreme cases, the sagging skin can overlap and cause rolls of loose skin to form over one another.

Sagging skin can also bring about severe emotional trauma and a range of psychological issues. This is especially true in cases of weight loss, since the cosmetic appearance of sagging skin contradicts the goal of improved appearance.
