Swing Low No More

Your cheeks and lower jaw are sagging like a turkey's wattle, but a surgical jowl lift -- with its associated pain and swelling -- is not an attractive option, either. During a non-surgical jowl lift (about $800), a Radiesse (calcium hydroxylapatite) filler is injected into the space in front of the jowl, restoring the jaw's youthful contour, explains Dr. Alexander Rivkin, founder of Westside Aesthetics, a non-surgical cosmetic practice located in Los Angeles. "This method doesn't require general anesthesia and relies instead on powerful numbing topical creams," he says. Patients can see the results as the virtually painless procedure occurs (usually in less than 30 minutes). "Most can go back to work immediately." The results typically last one-and-a-half to two years.
