Jowls

The term “jowls” is often used to describe sagging skin below your chin or jawline. Almost everyone develops jowls as they age. Over time, the skin in your cheeks and below your jawline loses much of its collagen and elastin. Collagen is a protein that makes up the connective tissue in your body. Elastin is another connective tissue protein that lets your skin return to its normal shape even after being stretched.

As these proteins are lost, the cheek skin surrounding your mouth loses its firmness and tightness. Once this happens, gravity causes it to sag and descend to the area on either side of your mouth and chin.

Jowls may be less pronounced in people who have thicker skin, more fat, or more collagen in the area below the cheeks and chin. Some people may never develop jowls because of their genes, environmental factors, and lifestyle choices.
