Jowl LiftThere are a number of underlying causes that lead to the formation of jowls on the lower face: gravitational changes, loss of fat in the upper cheeks, and shrinkage of the jaw and chin bone. Consequently, there are several treatment options that can be used to tackle and tighten sagging jowls.

When it comes to treatments for sagging jowls, there are many options available. We offer a range of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic medicine solutions to suit each individual’s preference.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Jowls

Jowl Lift

If you want an aesthetic treatment that is minimally invasive and allows you to return to your normal activities almost immediately, a non-surgical jowl lift treatment is for you.

Non-surgical treatments for jowls tend to have minimal after effects like skin redness or bruising on the face, so most patients can return to work the very next day.

As an international expert in aesthetic medicine, Dr Darren McKeown is renowned for his artistry with dermal fillers, a procedure that he carefully tailors to be suitable to your unique facial anatomy. He offers a variety of effective treatments for jowls at his cosmetic clinic in Glasgow, which can be used individually or collaboratively with other treatment options.

Our less invasive non-surgical jowl treatments include:

Volumetric Facelift

The volumetric facelift is a non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation that uses dermal fillers to restore volume and give the face a more youthful structure in a way that is understated and undetectable.

Radiofrequency Skin Tightening

Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment that can tighten skin laxity on the face. Radiofrequency microneedling combines the benefits of radiofrequency and microneedling procedures to tighten skin and leave it feeling and looking firmer & more youthful.

Cheek Filler

Cheek filler is a great option for lifting the appearance of the cheekbones. Restoration of volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face area can help to improve the appearance of the jowls.

Chin Filler

As we age, the chin gets smaller. Improving the projection of the chin using dermal fillers can help to improve the appearance of the jowls and jawline.

Wrinkle & Jowl Fillers

Sometimes injecting filler directly in front of the jowl — in an area known as the ‘pre-jowl sulcus’ — can help to camouflage the appearance of the jowl. A good wrinkle filler that is done correctly can last up to 24 months, resulting in smoothed-out skin with less visible wrinkles.

Contour TRL Laser Treatments

The Sciton Contour Tunable Resurfacing Laser (TRL) treatment is a procedure designed to tighten and rejuvenate the skin for a more defined, youthful-looking jawline.

The device we use for this treatment, the Sciton Contour TRL, is a highly innovative instrument that allows us to tailor the laser treatment to your unique goals and needs.

Surgical Treatments
for Jowls

Patients with more severe sagging jowls or those looking for a more permanent solution to sagging skin in this area could benefit from a surgical jowl lift procedure, including:


Facelift surgery, specifically a lower face and neck lift, is the classic, definitive treatment for tightening sagging jowls.

A lower face and neck lift involves tightening the loose muscles that cause the jowls, as well as removing loose skin from the jawline. A surgical facelift can provide more than just treatment for saggy jowls and is a great option for people wanting the full package of face and neck skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Facelift surgery can be performed under local anaesthetic, sedation, or general anaesthetic. The type of anaesthetic we use depends on the patient’s preferences and requirements and can be decided on during the consultation.

Jowl Lift


There are a number of things that can cause jowls to sag. Generally, it’s as we age that our jowls start to become problematic.

The causes are different for each patient, but the most common causes include:

Jowl Lift

One of the most common causes of sagging jowls is the loss of elastin and collagen in the face and neck area. This loss of elasticity, also known as skin laxity, is a naturally occurring effect of ageing and is pretty much unavoidable with the use of natural methods.

Unfortunately, for some, it is through no fault of their own that they develop jowls. Some people are genetically predisposed to developing them worse than others.

Lifestyle and environmental factors can also come into play.

If you regularly pull certain facial expressions that stretch out the skin on the face and the neck, you could loosen the skin more than it usually would. However, there are some facial exercises you can do to try and reduce the effects of ageing jowls.


Jowls are essentially loose skin around the jaw and neck, so people who have undergone extreme weight loss can end up with jowls due to there being too much stretched, excess skin.

Having too much exposure to UV rays from the sun can affect the collagen in the skin. Collagen production suffers and, as a result, more prominent jowls can develop.

It’s no secret that smoking is bad for you and that it doesn’t just affect your general health but the appearance of your skin too. Smoking stops key nutrients from getting to the skin. This can lead to premature ageing and a series of other issues.

If you are constantly looking down at a computer or phone for long periods of time, you may want to rethink. This can make the skin lose its elasticity a lot quicker and cause sagging skin around the neck.

We can identify the cause of your sagging jowls during your consultation at our clinic.

Advantages of
Getting Treatment
for Jowls

Jowl Lift

There are many advantages to getting a jowl treatment, whether it’s a non-surgical filler treatment or a surgical facelift. Some of these advantages include:

Makes You Look Younger

Treating your sagging jowls can help you look younger. Whether you opt for just a jowl treatment or a full facelift, you will leave the clinic feeling refreshed and like a new person.

Can Improve Confidence

Many people opt for a jowl treatment because they are unhappy with the way the sagging skin around the jaw and neck area looks and have lost confidence due to it.

Confidence doesn’t and shouldn’t just come from looks, but you can’t deny that when you look great, you immediately feel better. Get the spring back in your step with a jowl treatment in Glasgow at McKeown Medical.

Natural Looking

We pride ourselves on giving all of our patients natural-looking cosmetic treatments, whether it’s facial fillers or lifting with a lower face and neck lift procedure.

Minor–No Scarring

For our non-surgical jowl lift treatments, scarring will be pretty much non-existent. The only scars that could occur from this would be from injections, but this will be minute and unnoticeable to the naked eye.

If you do decide to opt for a surgical treatment like a facelift, we will do our best to ensure that your scarring is minimal. We will also provide you with a post-treatment plan to help reduce bruising and redness in the recovery stage and scarring thereafter, with minimal risk to the healing of the treated area.
