what are the concerns of chin liposuction?

Same as any lipo: Concerns relate to the indications. Does the patient have sufficient skin elasticity? Is fat the problem? Is another procedure a better option (implant or facelift)? Technical concerns relate to removal of enough but not too much fat as well as avoiding injury to nerves providing sensation or motor innervation.

Very few: #1) be sure your not having unrealistic expectations, ie that your hoping for a facelift result.

A few : Liposuction for the chin is at times not adequate. When more than solely fatty excess is present (older patients, ) a neck lift might be more appropriate. As long as it is performed in the right environment by a qualified doctor, chin lipo is safe.

Results: Careful patient selection is very important; for example, if the patient has poor quality elasticity or loose overlying skin of the chin area, aesthetic results may be very poor and additional surgery may be necessary. Patients should do their due diligence carefully when selecting plastic surgeon.

Chin liposuction: Chin or submental liposuction is a minimally invasive technique to define the jawline by removing excess fat and the appearance of a double chin. It can improve the contour of the cervicomental angle and reduce the appearance of a double chin. Risks include bleeding, infection, nerve injury, irregular contour, scarring, and need for revision.
