Getting any weight loss procedure is a big decision in your life. Making sure you have done your research about laser liposuction is key. Here are resources for you.


I always had firm jowls and a slight double chin that I felt made my neck look shorter. I decided to have the jowls and under chin lipo-sculpted, and had the surgery 8 days ago. Immediately after the surgery (smart lipo) I did not have any bruising and very minimal swelling. Which is great, but I don't see any changes! I just took a photo to compare with my pre-ops and I LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME!!!even my sister has told me there is no difference whatsoever.

I have minimal pain now and the scar is almost unnoticeable. I am so very upset at having thrown away all this money :( How could this be possible? the assistant told me when they finished the surgery that they had taken our almost 50 units of fat, you'd think that would make a difference. Has anyone experienced something like this?

12 weeks later (see new photo). As I suspected, the area where I felt the most numbness is where I had the most change (right side). The doctor said he could go back but to give it more time because the swelling. I looks better, I must say, but nothing dramatic. Oh well. I have an appointment soon and I'll decide if I have to have surgery again. my left side is basically the same as pre-surgery, and the back of the neck is the same.

It’s been 8 months now, and the “spongyness” that I felt on my neck has gone away. I don’t have a 90 degree angle on my neck as I wanted because the structure of my neck will simply not let that happen, but when I clench my jaw I no longer have the slight bulldog-like jowls I used to have. Also, I’ve lost about 5 pounds and every one that has not seen me in a while asks if I’ve lost weight, that I look great/younger (an I don’t think 5 pounds would make a noticeable difference, so it has to be the lack of fat under the neck).

So overall the procedure was worth it. I am considering a chin implant to see if it would help with my neckline.

I forgot to mention that the residual swelling went down at the same time that I recuperated most of the feeling sensation on my jaw (it’s about 90% back to normal).

I am very concerned about the contour of my skin after having lipo under my chin. I am 39 and just wanted a small amount taken out, but the doctor told me he was aggresive because he wanted me to have a really good result.

Anyway, my problem is that my skin is stuck to my bone it looks like and that’s what he told me. This week will be week 3 and my doctor, who I do think is great by the way, told me that ultrasound may help and to massage the area. From what I have read I know that bumps under the skin are normal and will go away, which I have too, I am just very worried about the major uneveness. It actually looks like I have incision lines under my chin. I want to know what I can do to make this better or go away and I want to know if it will get better. I wore the chin strap for about a week and when I took it off my chin and neck looked beautiful but now I think I look like a burn victim.

How to improve skin sticking to bone after under chin lipo and will it get better (I’m 3 weeks post-op)?

I had light chin liposuction during my facelift last October. I am mid-40s and I look my age. I didn’t think I looked horrible then but this was to be a proactive step. Women my age can attest: you often don’t get fat in certain areas because you are fat; it is just there. Then it starts to hang and pull your skin down and soon you find yourself not looking trim.

My doc suggested chin lipo when I asked about a lower facelift. He told me point blank that he could pull the skin back up and I would look better but that in three or four years time the weight of the fat in my chin would pull it right down again. I appreciated this honesty and it made complete sense! He was a guiding light on my surgical journey and really helped me to make the right decisions.

The work he did was fantastic. I had a full facelift but my most drastic change came in my chin area because he removed the fat there and also pulled the skin up. It is dramatic and this alone makes me happy for the procedure. The results I see in the rest of my face are lovely as well. I looked refreshed and I would say mid to late 30s… but GOOD.

Liposuction isn’t for everyone but I can’t recommend it enough in conjunction with a facelift. Fat deposits may very well be your real problem so ask your doctor!

After surgery I had some amount of liquid inside of my chin and neck. The doctor pooled it out with needle next day after surgery (surgery has been done at 07/28/10), but I can feel that some of liquid is still there which worries me… Does anybody had anything like that?

If I only can change my decision of that time, I WOULD NEVER DO THIS SURGERY!

My chin after surgery is noticeably enough asymmetrical. After liposuction the second chin is gone, but my neck looks older than before. I STILL have uncomfortable feelings inside of my chin. There is feeling as if some small needles are inside of my chin when I touch it, also numbness and pulling sensation is there. The feeling of Heterogeneity is present. And that is unpleasant feeling.

I am 33 years old, 120 lbs. 16 days ago I had lipo on my neck for hereditary and age turkey neck. My PS also used laser resurfacing on inner side of skin to counter the loose skin as my skin has poor elasticity.

I am required to wear the garment 24/7 for 3 weeks. This seems excessive to me and I'm starting to get a bit of cabin fever! Medium pain, swelling a bruising. By 5th day all bruising had gone and swelling much decreased. The numbness was a bit of a shock, though the much of the feeling has come back in the last few days. The overall effect looked great at day 5 and I was really excited. Now however, I have 2 indentations on my neck under my chin and the skin seems loose and sagging there as well. I am starting to freak out a bit. It's really quite noticeable and I'm concerned about people noticing it when I finally get to venture out in public. It makes my neck look a lot older than I am. I have had lymphatic massage twice and found this really helped break down the lump. I wish I'd done it sooner.

I was wondering if anyone else had experienced the loose skin and indentations after neck lipo and whether this went away and in how long? I've not been able to find many people who have had smart lip with co2 laser on the underside skin, I'm curious about anyone else who has done this and what their results were. I will post photo's as soon as I work out how to download from my camera :-)
