Sagging Jaw


Jaw Contouring Glasgow

A sagging jawline (sometimes referred to as jowls) is one of the most common lower face complaints that motivate men and women to come to an aesthetic clinic.

Dr Darren McKeown provides jaw contouring in Glasgow using cutting edge technology & techniques at his aesthetic clinic — McKeown Medical.

There are a number of underlying causes that lead to the appearance of a weak jawline or saggy skin along the jawline and chin, including facial ageing, gravitational changes, loss of fat in the upper cheek, and shrinkage of the jaw & chin bone.

Because there are so many possible causes at play, there are a number of saggy jawline treatments that can be used to tighten the skin and restore definition to the jaw.

Techniques for Restoring Definition of the Jawline

The objective of jawline sculpting treatments is to restore definition and enhance the contour and shape of the lower face, thus giving you the overall appearance you desire. We will advise you on the best jawline tightening procedure or treatment for your specific needs.

The techniques used for each procedure can range from a jawline filler treatment to surgical treatments with local anaesthetic and minimal downtime that have much more extensive results for severe sagging of the jowls.

Some of our most popular treatments involve the use of dermal fillers, for which Dr Darren McKeown has been recognised as one of the ‘Best Injectables Doctors in the UK’. But he is also a trained plastic surgeon, so whether you choose non-surgical jawline contouring with fillers or you decide to tighten your jawline with cosmetic surgery, you will be in experienced hands.

Jaw Contouring

Patients looking for a non-surgical jaw enhancement in Glasgow tend to want a treatment that is also pain-free and that can be done with minimal discomfort and recovery time. Our non-surgical jawline tightening treatments have been curated with that in mind.

We offer several different types of non-surgical treatments for jowls that can be used individually or collaboratively with other treatment options to achieve your desired results, including jaw and chin contouring fillers. For a natural-looking non-surgical jaw enhancement that offers effective results with minimal discomfort and downtime, we have a treatment for you.

Our non-surgical procedures to tighten the jawline include:

Volumetric Facelift

The volumetric facelift is a non-surgical approach to full-face rejuvenation – without the associated downtime of a surgical procedure such as a full facelift

We use dermal fillers to restore volume in a way that is understated and undetectable: injecting onto the bone – thus reinforcing a patient’s natural projection – rather than over-volumising the features. The result is a more youthful facial structure that looks refreshed yet natural.

Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling Skin Tightening

Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment that can reduce fine lines & wrinkles, improve skin tone & texture, and tighten skin laxity on the face. RF microneedling combines the benefits of radiofrequency and microneedling procedures to tighten skin and leave it feeling and looking firmer & more youthful. 

Unlike other RF skin tightening treatments, the Morpheus8 device can reach deeper into the skin and has a “burst” mode that can penetrate multiple layers simultaneously for a more even treatment.

Cheek Filler

There are many treatment techniques when it comes to using dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of a weak jaw. We use Juvéderm for each dermal filler treatment and the results differ from Botox significantly. One of the key differences is that dermal filler lasts longer.

This cheek filler treatment using anti-ageing hyaluronic acid restores volume loss in the cheek and mid-face area, which can in turn help to improve the appearance of the jowls and jawline area and give your skin a more youthful appearance.

Chin Filler

As we age, the chin gets smaller, which can alter the look of the lower facial features. We use chin filler injections to add volume and improve the projection of the chin, which can also lead to an improvement in the appearance of the entire jawline.

If you are aiming to regain the strong jawline and lower face shape of your youth, this treatment using hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can assist with that. With thousands of dermal filler treatments performed at McKeown Medical every year, Dr Darren McKeown is an expert when it comes to using dermal fillers for sagging jowls.

Wrinkle Filler

To enhance your skin in a natural-looking way, you can use wrinkle filler injections where you have wrinkles forming around your chin and jaw.

Sometimes injecting filler along the jawline directly in front of the jowl — in an area known as the ‘pre-jowl sulcus’ — can help to camouflage the sagging along the chin and jawline.

Sagging Jaw Treatments


While jawline filler treatments and skin tightening along the chin and jaw area can significantly improve the lower face, the most impressive and efficient results are usually found in a surgical procedure that targets not just the jawline, but the whole face.

Our surgical treatment options for jaw contouring include:


When it comes to jawline contouring surgery, a facelift is the go-to. Facelift surgery is the classic, definitive chin tightening treatment for the improvement of sagging along the jawline.

As a chin contouring treatment, a face and neck lift involves tightening the loose muscles along the jaw and removing loose skin from the jawline to create a more defined appearance. Tightening the jawline in this way can also address a double chin and other facial areas that you may wish to reshape.

Unlike when using jawline filler for sagging jowls, a face and neck lift with surgical jawline contouring is a once-off procedure with results that last.

We will discuss the procedure in more detail during your consultation to ensure it is the right sagging jawline treatment for you.
