In terms of volume, the lower third of the face is prone to age-related accumulation of fat. Although jowls are more due to excess skin, the appearance of sagging can be alleviated by strategically adding volume. A filler like Radiesse or your own fat can help contour the jawline and create a more chiseled, youthful look in some patients.
A facelift, on the other hand, works differently in that it moves the loose skin and underlying tissues up to improve the appearance of this area and produce a significant, longer-lasting correction. Adding volume at the time of or after surgery can also refine the results of a lifting procedure.
