How much does a chin liposuction cost?

A rounder face might be the result of extra fat accumulating around the neck and submental area (double chin). The strong contours of our cheekbones and jawline draw the eye to and highlight our best features. When performing chin liposuction, a specialized cannula is used to gently release and remove fat from the chin.

Although fat reduction can help practically any patient, some people will benefit more than others. Patients under the age of 40 typically have skin that can retract when fat is trimmed away. Candidates with a low body fat percentage and a persistent double chin also fare very well. Finally, keep in mind that there is no hard and fast rule about weight.

The average cost of liposuction of the chin and jawline is $3,000, as reported by Realself. While most patients prefer to have general anesthetic for chin lipo, a compassionate surgeon can guide virtually any patient through the procedure with just local, saving a ton of money. Because of his extensive experience, Dr. Sheffield can do liposuction of the chin while you are awake in the vast majority of cases. He thinks this is the key to greater results, and it also makes the treatment cheaper and has a shorter recovery time.
