I am considering having lipo under my chin. I am worried about having loose skin afterwards or asymmetry.

Both are risks you must accept if you want the procedure. See a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and you will find out how good a candidate you are and the risks of both of these issues.
Am I a good candidate for liposuction
Based on your photos, you appear to be young and have good skin. These are factors that make someone a favorable candidate for liposuction. However, there are many factors, but physical, medical, and emotional that make someone a good candidate for cosmetic surgery. Therefore, I would recommend you see a plastic surgeon for a consultation. He/she will do a complete history and physical and assess your individual anatomy and what look you hope to achieve. He/she can discuss with you the risks, benefits, and alternatives of the procedure as well as help you establish realistic expectations for what surgery can accomplish for you.

You appear to be an excellent candidate for liposuction under the chin. However, you should have a personalized consultation.

Neck/Under Chin Liposuction Candidate
Your photos indicate you have good skin elasticity, which would likely make you a good candidate for liposuction of the neck. During a consultation, you should discuss your medical history and any medications you take with your your doctor (preferably a board certified plastic surgeon). This is to make sure your procedure goes smoothly and without any medical complications.
I agree with the other posts, that a chin implant might be a good addition to give you an even better result. A chin implant can be done through a small incision inside the mouth, so no external incision/scar. The surgeon you choose should have many before and after photos of this procedure. If not, find someone else. Good luck!
By looking at your pictures I am not able to give you an opinion. The correct procedure can be determined only after a physical examination.
- If the fullness under your chin is pure fate, liposuction should give you a good result.
- However, if it is just loose skin, liposuction is not the right procedure for you.
- If it bot fat and loose skin, a vary conservative liposuction may be helpful.
Below are several of my patients who have had Chin Liposuction:
Chin liposuction is a good procedure for you.
Good candidate for chin/neck liposuction
Based on your photo, you do appear to be a good candidate for liposuction of the chin/neck. Young patients (under 40) do very well as long as they have good skin tone (elasiticity). It will take a few months for the skin to shrink and contract; the surgical garment will help with this during the first few weeks post-surgery.
Am I a Good Canidate for Lipo of Neck.
Yes, I recommend Smart lipo + lipo under local anesthesia. Seek in person evaluations from boarded PSs in your area.
Yes good candidate for liposuction neck
you appear to have very good skin elasticity and would therefore be a very good candidate for liposuction of the neck. You also have a small chin and your results from liposuction of the neck and a small chin implant would be exceptional. Your plastic surgeon should be able to show you many before and after pictures of this exact operation to help you decide. If he or she does not or cannot show you photos of similar patients then continue your search for a board certified plastic surgeon. Best wishes.
Some may offer a chin implant.
I think you might do very well with just neck liposuction. I would recommend getting several opinions. Keep in mind that cosmetic dermatologist also offer this service and tend to perform neck liposuction with much fewer drugs which can be a great choice for many. There is no evidence that a particular device is better for liposuction that a properly done microcanula liposuction.
