I’m 81 years old with type 2 diabetes. I have sagging cheeks and a sagging under jaw. Is possible to fix?
It sounds as if you are dealing with natural signs of aging that are causing gravitational issues with the mid and lower face.
A facelift procedure possibly combined with a neck lift is usually performed to correct these issues. Since we also loose volume in the mid face/cheek area fat grafting could potentially compliment the result for you.
Our patients are required additional testing, scans, and labs prior to proceeding with their surgery to ensure they are a candidate. Please check with your doctor to ensure you are a candidate for cosmetic surgery.
All the best,

Sounds as if you are dealing with the natural signs of aging and gravitational issues. Generally a facelift possibly incorporated with a neck lift is indicated. To address loss of volume in the mid face/cheek area fat grafting is also usually a great option to compliment the facelift procedure. In my practice patients over a certain age demographic require additional testing prior to moving forward with their procedure to ensure they are a candidate.
