(312) 372-2256 | Allen M. Putterman, MD, SC


Dr. Putterman does a simplified facelift to decrease jowls. It is done by releasing skin from around the ears and face and tightening the fibrotic tissue underneath skin. He commonly combines this with a cheek-midface lift done through a lower eyelid approach, which pulls the midface almost straight upward. The facelift then pulls the lower face obliquely toward the ears, which decreases the jowls.
