How Can I Tighten Up My Sagging Skin?

By    |   Friday, 16 May 2014 04:00 PM

The skin under my chin is starting to sag and I am thinking about having a facelift or injections to tighten it up (I’m 55, a woman). Are these procedures safe and effective, or is there something else I should try first? I’m not overweight and don’t have any wrinkles at all on my face. 

Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
 
Most surgical procedures to correct sagging skin are generally very safe. Fillers are often safe, but some few have adverse reactions regardless of how good their doctor is, and they really do not correct the problem, they camouflage them.
 
Botox is often a good temporary measure that produces good results for many patients. Sometimes a selective laser treatment or two may delay or eliminate your desire for more invasive surgery, so don’t overlook this option.

With no wrinkles, you probably need only some muscle tightening of your platysma muscle under your chin area. You probably do not need a facelift.
