Leave the Turkey to Thanksgiving: The Art of Jowl Removal


Jowl RemovalAs you age, the looser your skin gets. And unfortunately, parts of your body start to lose elasticity and you start to look a bit older than you might feel. Not only can areas of your body such as your breasts and buttocks start to sag a little, but areas around your face— especially your neck start to lose elasticity and leave you looking more like your favorite Thanksgiving bird than you care to admit. Luckily, Dr. Larry Weinstein specializes in a variety of plastic surgeries— including jowl removal— that are designed to help get rid of the unwanted fat and skin around your neck and help you to look and feel like your younger self once again. But what exactly is jowl removal surgery? Read on to learn more.

What is a jowl lift?
As you age, the area under your chin and around the upper part of your neck starts to lose elasticity and gather a bit of fat— leaving you with a more enhanced looking jowl line. During a jowl lift, Dr. Larry Weinstein works to not only emit that fat that has built up but to also lift that extra skin that has lost elasticity in order to give you a smoother and more youthful looking appearance.

What is recovery like?
Before you consider getting a jowl lift, it’s important to understand what you can expect from the recovery process. Recovery from a jowl lift requires at least a few weeks and will also require that you get the proper amount of rest afterwards. As your body works to heal from this major surgery, it’s important that you don’t participate in any sort of strenuous activity, as this could exacerbate the surgical area and cause infection.

What results can I expect?
Unfortunately, no surgery can yet permanently stop the signs and effects of aging. However, by getting a jowl lift you can help to minimize the aging results and slow down the aging process. Although a jowl lift isn’t permanent, it will allow you to look and feel younger for a longer period of time.

If you have noticed that you are bothered by the excess fat and skin around your jowl line, contact Larry Weinstein’s office today to set up a consultation— you won’t regret it!
