Sagging Jowls

The Problem

Some people think the telltale sign of a person’s age is not wrinkles or crow’s feet around their eyes, but is actually sagging jowls.

Our MicroLipo procedure has scored 9 out of 10 on TATLER Guide to Beauty and Cosmetic Surgery.

The jawline is what separates our face from our neck and with age we lose definition in our jaws and much of the distinction between the two areas. The good news is we have a treatment for sagging jowls and you may be able to correct and regain a beautifully defined jaw.

Traditionally a surgical face lift procedure was considered the only treatment for sagging jaws. However not every patient is willing to undergo what is classed as a major surgical procedure, performed under general anaesthetic and requiring a considerable downtime. It is now possible to redefine your jaws and checks without the need to undergoing a major surgical procedure thanks to MicroLipo, a walk-in walk-out minimally invasive procedure.

The Problem

Some people think the telltale sign of a person’s age is not wrinkles or crow’s feet around their eyes, but is actually sagging jowls.

The Results

Not everyone is a good candidate for facial and neck liposuction. Some people may require a face lift. For example, if you have large folds of skin on the neck, but little fat, a face lift would be of more benefit.

If excessive fat around your lower cheeks and neck are the issue, minimally invasive liposuction can deliver superior results in re-shaping your jawline.


Downtime is minimal and you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately. You may experience some bruising and swelling.


Who performs the MicroLipo procedure?

Dr Puneet Gupta is highly qualified in a number of cosmetic treatments and is a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors. Dr Gupta has had advanced training in Microcannular Liposuction using tumescent anaesthesia in the USA by the inventor of the tumescent technique. Dr Gupta practices the Microcannular techniques at The Private Clinic in London, Manchester and Birmingham.

How does Micro Lipo work?

A large amount of very dilute local anaesthesia is injected into the fat causing the targeted areas to become swollen and firm. The fat is then removed using microcannulas with a diameter of just 1 millimetre.

The Microcannular Liposuction technique is the brainchild of Dr. Jeffrey Klein who wanted to achieve excellent cosmetic results but with rapid post-operative return to normal activities. Since the invention, Dr. Klein has taught the technique to hundreds of doctors in California.

Dr Gupta of The Private Clinic is the only European doctor who is certified in the KleinLipo technique and has been recommended on TATLER 2011 Guide of Beauty and Cosmetic treatments.

What causes Sagging Jowls?

There are many different reasons – from genetics to muscles – that cause the jawline to sag. The shape of your jawline bone has a lot to do with it to. On some people the jawbone protrudes out more than it does on others. This helps to support the tissue. Other factors include:

Aging is inevitably a contributing factor.

Finally having some extra weight can be a big contributor to sagging jowls. When we have more fat, it causes the skin to stretch and sag. If you drop those pounds, you’re left with the excess tissue. If you keep those pounds on, you are still left with extra fat which weighs down the area and can cause it to sag.

Nowadays with Microcannular liposuction you can have similar results to a cosmetic face lift procedure. You have none of the major risks and downtime that are normally associated with surgical face lifts and you can achieve a very natural looking result with friends and colleagues none the wiser.

How much does Sagging Jowls cost?

Treatment prices starts at £2,600, but may vary depending on the area to be treated. Please be aware that only a few physicians have the level of experience required for this delicate procedure. Our doctors have performed amongst the highest number of minimally invasive liposuction procedures in the UK.

We offer FREE consultations with our highly experienced Patient Advisors who are able to offer you all the information your require prior to meeting a surgeon. Consultations with a specialist Liposuction Doctor is £50.

Am I suitable?

In a number of instances MicroLipo can provide an alternative for a traditional surgical face lift. It has benefits that can’t be found with surgery, such as restoring natural facial contours and volume. Also, results are typically more subtle than with surgery. However, it is not for everyone. You should discuss your objectives with the doctor before undergoing any procedure.

Will I feel any pain during the procedure?

Our procedures are carried out under local anaesthetic, so you will feel no pain during treatment.

How long does the procedure take?

Around 1 hour.

How soon will I see the results?

Often results are visible immediately but will improve further over the following weeks. Once you have fat removed, it is gone and, assuming you adopt a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and reasonable exercise, it will not return.
