It's possible: With any procedure, there is always a chance that things may not turn out as well as planned. Lumps under the skin can be caused by fat left behind, fat cells that don't survive and become hard (fat necrosis), some bleeding, or technical errors on the part of the surgeon. The best reason to use an experienced plastic surgeon is to help prevent complications or treat them should they occur.

Rarely : If you are a poor candidate or have a novice surgeon, problems are more likely. If properly screened and operated it is rare.

Possible: 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.
