How Much Is Liposuction Of The Neck Worth It
Depends: Many things affect the cost of liposuction. The area of the country, type of anesthesia and which technology is used all come into play. If you are a good candidate, lipo is a great solution to a double chin or saggy neck (especially if using laser). Most docs do free consult so you could find out the cost. http://www.omahacosmeticsurgery.com/real-results/liposculpture/ ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Can neck liposuction be done at the same time as chin augmentation? I have a weak chin and a lot of extra fat below it. Is it possible to have liposuction of the neck at the same time as my chin augmentation?
Neck liposuction: Liposuction can be done for a neck with excess fat. Modern liposuction consts of placing tumescent solution in the area to be treated. This solution consists of lactated ringers or normal saline, reduces pain (using lidocaine) and reduces bruising/bleeding (using epinephrine). Cannula then are used to extract the solution and the fat. Compression garments are used to keep a good contour. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Sure can: Neck liposuction can be very affective in the right patient. We often use neck liposuction during a facelift to help shape and tighten up the neck and chin area. In patients not undergoing a facelift one has to be careful. If there is excessive loose skin then liposuction alone may leave you with less fat but still loose skin. If skin quality is good then Lipo can work great ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does liposuction work well for reducing jowels and giving a smooth jawline. I otherwise have a thin face and neck. 59 yrs. Old.
No, jowls are caused: By loose skin, not excessive fat. Most plastic surgeons know this, and any amount of localized fat "excess" is usually malpositioned fat. Most patients lose fat volume as they age, so tightening and repositioning fat/deeper tissues, as well as tightening skin (properly) is much better than facial liposuction. See abps-certified plastic surgeon, not a "cosmetic surgeon" with questionable training! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Can chin liposuction cause numbness in your neck? I've read that chin liposuction can sometimes damage nerves and cause numbness. Is that true? Is it permanent?
Chin Lipo: Numbness can occur, but it's usually transient and comes back within a short time. Nerve damage to cutaneous sensory nerve occurs, but these grow back. Damage to the marginal mandibular nerve can occur as well, this causes a distorted smile, which usually resolves in a few months. Most importantly is that lipo of the chin is very safe.

Should i get a neck lift along with my chin liposuction? I have a double chin, so i'd like to get chin liposuction. I feel like my skin is also pretty loose, so i'm wondering if i'll also need a chin lift to get good results.
Neck lift: Liposuction of the neck and chin area is a great procedure for patients that want more definition and just have excess fat. However, loose skin is not treated by liposuction, and would be better treated by a neck lift. You need a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. http://www.dassmd.com/neck-lift-beverly-hills.html. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

What causes lumpiness after chin liposuction? I've read some forum comments about people having lumps in their neck after chin liposuction. Is that normal? Does it go away?
Chin liposuction: Submental liposuction (or microliposculpture) can improve the look of a double chin, make the angle between your chin and neck more attractive, and define your jawline. One risk is irregularity of the resultant contour, which can look or feel lumpy. This often goes away in several months. If it persists, revision may be necessary. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Can tumescent liposuction be done in conjunction with a face lift? I want to have a face lift, but i also have a lot of fat under my chin. Can I have tumescent liposuction for the neck fat at the same time as the face lift?
Yes.: Tumescent liposuction is commonly done in conjunction with a face lift, especially if your neck only has fatty prominence and lacks droopy skin and muscle. With good skin elasticity female neck skin can tighten and lift a surprising amount without a neck lift be performed.

How is chin liposuction different for a patient who recently underwent thyroid surgery? I had thyroid surgery which consisted of removal of two benign nodules. How does this affect my eligibility for chin liposuction taking in consideration the proximity
No different: Liposuction is performed above the neck muscles, thyroid surgery is performed underneath (deep to) the neck muscles.
