The jowels, or the sagging skin and fat pocket that hangs from the lower part of the face, is a very common reason many people seek out a surgical facelift procedure. Sometimes simply dissolving the fat in the jowel area and combining it the the radiofrequency skin tightening procedure can give you a remarkable result without resorting to the knife.
