In another thread of mine, I talked a bit about my heavy swelling after double jaw surgery, v line, and lipo in the neck. I am happy with the shape of what was done to me, but sadly there are many problems related to the drooping of my skin. I am now nearly 8 months out of surgery, but I hate showing my face. I look like a grandma thanks to my soft tissue formation and my panic attacks and depression have been getting worse. I am looking for options on how to fix the soft tissue and sagging in my face, but I haven't found any place that would work on a patient for lifting as young as I. Any recommendations? Any surgeons? I plan on getting a lip lift later this year, and maybe Thermitight, but I think I need something more drastic...

So sorry to hear about your ordeal. I would suggest Radiofrequency treatments or threadlift?

never heard of radiofrequency but threadlift you have to have re-done every few months so it's upkeep. Facelift possible but pricey I heard. Kakao groups are still up and active... many people there seem to have experience with sagging.

I’m dealing with the same thing right now. Ulthera helped some. I did thread lifting about a year ago and it’s already worn off. I’m looking into jawline lipo to see if it helps with the heaviness.

So sorry to hear about your experience! What does your surgeon suggest to do?
Usually if there is a chance of sagging skin after surgery, the surgeon let you know in advance and recommends to do lift or lipo together or something

I had zygoma reduction, revision genio, and v-line surgery. I had a witches chin and largish jaw before so it was a pretty big change but now I’ve got sagging.

Hi @sodapops, I'm sorry for your ordeal. Sending you love and good wishes.

I think you could consider going back to a plastic surgery clinic in Korea for your SMAS lift? I understand that FL procedures after facial contouring surgeries are more common there.

How much did Dr lee cut off your chin in mm? Also how much in two jaw? Want to know how much reduction can cause sagging

@dinoca yes RF treatments like Radiage help to tighten the skin. Ofcourse you have to keep up with the treatments so ultimately facelift would be the permanent solution. Have you done threadlifts before?
