Facelift without surgery : redefinition of the oval of the face

1 (9)

Ageing is responsible for several changes which occur to the lower third of the face :
– The loss of definition to the facial oval and the appearance of jowls.
– The reversal of the facial triangle.
–  Changes in the relationship between the key points of the jawline.

MODIFICATION OF JAWLINE 

There are several stages in the drooping of the jawline

Stage 0 

Absence of sagging of the mandibular line

4

Stage 4

Sagging of the very deep mandibular line

1

Stage 1 

Slight sagging of the mandibular line

2

Stage 2 

Moderate sagging of the mandibular line

3

Stage 3 

Deep sagging of the mandibular line

Causes of modification of facial oval

Changes to the bones 

The angle of the jaw increases notably with age, which results in a loss of definition to the lower edge of this bone. The length and ‘height’ of the jaw is significantly reduced.

Slackening skin

Aggravated by the loss of jawbone support.

Fat ptosis

 

POSSIBLE TREATMENTS

10 (4)

Hyaluronic acid

The ‘LIFT FILL’ injection technique allows us to achieve a ‘tensing’ effect whilst respecting the natural curves and volumes of the face, thus delaying the need for surgical intervention. It can be performed on a specific, delicate area, or as a wider treatment.
After having increased the malar area fat by injection, injections are made to the oval of the face.

In traditional surgery implants would be made to the jaw, whilst the medical route replaces these implants with hyaluronic acid with injections following traction vectors in order to give the face a V-shape appearance.

Threads

The use of lifting thread is a non-surgical face lift technique for sagging tissues.
The placing of mesothreads or tensile threads allows the repositioning of facial tissue and volume without scalpels or scarring.

For a result, it is necessary to select the patients. If the appearance of the jowls is caused only by sagging skin, threads are a good indication. If bone re-absorption and fat ptosis are associated, threads are not the technique to use.

Ultherapy

Ultrasounds converge at a single point, it reduces the fat volume by 'burning' the fat. The best indication is the jowl caused only by the fat ptosis. The results remain inconsistent (and the expensive treatment). In my opinion we must not forget that the purpose of each treatment is to beautify you, then you will be more beautiful if we lift this fat rather than if we burn it.

Doctor Romano is attentive to her patients. I consulted for a slackness in the oval of the face and the jowls. I am very satisfied with the result.
