I had jaw surgery (lefort osteotomy and bsso) and ever since the skin on the left side of my face sags a little bit. It isn’t too noticeable until I smile. When I smile my skin bunches up on the left side of my face. I have tried laser and radio frequency treatments to no avail. Is there anything I can do besides a facelift and anything I can do at home to help improve it until I can afford a procedure? Please help.

Before answering a question like this I would need to know more about your previous surgery like why was it done, how long ago, were there any complications of that surgery, etc. Ideally, a personal exam would have to be performed before making any firm recommendations but even photos would be helpful. That being said there are some new technological advances that have been made in the arena of skin tightening ,such as Renuvion and FaceTite devices that may be helpful in your situation.
