In brief: Risks

All liposuction whether conventional, ultrasound or laser assisted have potential for complications.
Here are a few: reaction to anesthesia fluid accumulation fat or blood clots which can migrate to the heart or lungs, leading to death skin injury infection excessive fluid loss asymmetry (uneven contour or shape) friction burns damage to vital organs. Laser assisted is considered as safe as others.

In brief: Possibly

Every surgical procedure has possible side effects.
Side effects / complications from laser liposuction include contour irregularities, asymmetries, scars, and burns. The possibility of a burn comes from the laser used with liposuction. The liposuction can be done without out a laser which eliminates the risk of burns. Most laser assisted liposuction chin patients are satisfied by the treatment.

In brief: Yes

Every surgical procedure has possible side effects.
Common problems from laser liposuction include contour irregularities, asymmetries, scars, and unfortunately more and more reports of burns are being reported as more surgeons get more aggressive with these lasers. Surgery has risks. Liposuction is surgery. Laser liposuction is still surgery. So, talk to a board certified plastic surgeon.

In brief: Many side effects

Namely over treatment or under treatment.
Laser like any surgical instrument may be safe but it can also produce excessive scarring or thermal injury which can be undersireable in the highly visible chin area.
