Should I get Chin Liposuction?

Should I get Chin Liposuction, submitted image.

How often do people get Chin Liposuction? I don’t know anyone to be sincere about it. I wonder if anyone’s had good results with it. I'm definitely interested in visible results only because it’s a costly operation - probably painful too - and I wouldn’t try it otherwise. Does anyone have any good news for me?

Liposuction of the neck is a very common procedure and like most if not all plastic surgery procedures the best candidates for the procedure get the best results.  If you have good skin tone your should have a nice improvement especially if you have the procedure performed by a board certified plastic surgeon.

Dear evelyin1976:

Yes! In properly selected patients, micro-lipocontouring of the face and neck are exceptional procedures with and without minimally invasive and surgical suspension of the underlying soft tissues. 

Consult with a artsy, talented and skillful Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for proper examination to see if this is right for you. 

All the best!

While liposuction is the gold standard for removing fat under the chin and the jawline, you might be a candidate for Kybella, which is a new, non-invasive treatment (it is only an injection) to remove fat specifically under the center of the chin.

Best to consult with a plastic surgeon to discuss your alternatives.
