No set age: You probably mean NECK liposuction, since we don't lipo the chin. Underneath the chin is the "submental" neck area containing fat, but also loose muscles (the Platysma) which may need to be tightened with sutures after the liposuction. Also, excess skin may need to be removed behind the ears to give a good tight result. A surgeon should be able to tell you what treatment you need.after your visit.

No age limits: There is no maximum or minimum age for having SmartLipo. Older patients may have more skin laxity which can be improved with the laser tightening associated with SmartLipo, younger patients (under 50) tend to get better results because their skin tightens better.
