How much is Accusculpt for the chin/jawline?

I've been researching and came accross accusculpt, it seems suitable for minimal amounts of fat removed around the neck and jawline and it's less invasive. How much would a procedure like that cost?

Accusculpt is not less invasive as liposuction!!

Hello, 

You are the unwitting victim of media hype that surrounds all of these high tech gadgets involved in cosmetic medicine. This scam is being committed by the manufacturers, the surgeons that invest large sums of money to obtain them, and the media that will essentially perform an infomercial disguised as a news segment.  They are telling you a lie of omission when they say it is 'minimally invasive'. What they are not telling you is that liposuction, which is part of the surgical process in every one of these devices, is also 'minimally' invasive. Additionally, most of them involve some form of electromagnetic or sound energy (laser, vaser, radiofrequency, ultrasound) that all produce heat, enough to contribute to heat related injury of the tissues, including skin. 

The most significant problem the marketing hype has created however, is the intentional transfer of importance from surgeon to machine. Prospective patients think that good results are gotten from the latest and greatest machine, and not from the skill and experience of the surgeon.  This is a travesty and is leading to a higher rate of complications and poor surgical results.

You should consult with a plastic surgeon expert in facial surgery and discuss your issues. Certification with the ABPS and membership in the ASAPS are important credentials. 


Best of luck!

In the effort to minimize surgical trauma. Some therapies have been introduced which may be ineffectual. Liposuction of the chin and neck is a simple procedure and can be performed with local anesthesia. It takes about 15 min.

   Find a great plastic surgeon who is an expert at liposuction and let him or her determine what machine is best.  It is always the surgeon and not the machine.
