Will neck liposuction cause loose skin for me? Or it might need liposuction combined with face lift? (photo)

Laser liposuction alone without neck lift may fix your double chin
Facelift or Necklift or both
You are still young and should have good and should have good skin elasticity. This means you would be a very good candidate for neck lift by minimally invasive techniques and liposuction
Liposuction of the neck (often referred to as submental liposuction) alone may be sufficient for you. It is difficult to determine whether or not enough skin laxity exists in the upper face to warrant more surgery such as a face or midface lift to enhance your result. I recommend an in person consult with plastic surgeon certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. The ASPS lists member surgeons that are board certified in your area.
Liposuction only should yield a good result.

If the neck liposuction did not get you the result you wanted, a lower facelift could be done. The liposuction does not "burn any bridges".
Treatment of heavy neck
- a neck liposuction and platysmaplasty (neck muscle tightening) should be the best approach.
- Skin will settle into the curve of the neck.
- Fat transplants can be done at the same time.
- Surgeons get excellent, predictable results with standard microaire liposuction.
- No special machines are required, although surgeons who own them will want to use them.
Lipo with facelift?
Given your age, you may have good skin elasticity, particularly if you have not been excessively heavy in the past and then lost a lot of weight. Submental liposuction alone may be sufficient for you. Some of the fat suctioned could be transferred to your face if necessary. I recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is performed.
Best of luck to you!
