I'm not old enough for a face lift etc., but I know for a fact I'll never lose this double chin and I'd really like it gone. What can I expect for a price range?

Price for chin liposuction on double chin
The price of chin liposuction will vary depending on your locations, doctor's office, method of removal, and the amount of work that needs to be done. In general, it ranges from $1500 to $2500.
Double chin lipo cost
Correction of the lower face, jawline, chin and neck areas may entail liposuction, muscle tightening, suture suspension, skin resection (lower facelift), and/or a chemical peel or resurfacing. Liposuction by itself may not produce your desired result. A chin enlargement (augmentation genioplasty) can enhance the results of a liposuction. A necklift may also be indicated and may entail 3 or 4 different types of procedures based upon the condition of the skin, fat (amount and location), muscles (loose, weak, or separated), as well as your general body weight and facial shape.
For example, chin implants are commonly performed in combination with liposuction of the neck, tightening of the neck muscles, and/or a facelift. Sometimes, Botox or fillers (collagen, fat, Gortex, Alloderm, etc.) can also provide improvements without surgery. During the consultation we may determine that other procedures are better suited for your optimal outcome.
Liposuction of the neck is typically performed through several small (1/4") incisions placed under the chin and behind the ears. It takes about an hour and may performed on an outpatient basis under local, sedation, or general anesthesia. Additional incisions are required to treat the jowls.
Chin augmentation can be performed inside or outside the mouth. I prefer the latter for several reasons. The operation may involve removal of skin and/or fat (liposuction) and/or movement of the chin pad and/ or tightening or repair of the underlying muscles. The proper procedure to perform is a complex decision process determined based on your desires, anatomy, practicality, and wound healing.
Surgery varies from 1-4 hours but may take longer.
We generally recommend that you take a week off work and avoid strenuous physical activity for three weeks. Compression garments are generally required during the first week.
The surgery can be done in several different places (hospital, office surgical suite, or surgicenter) and the prices vary accordingly with the last being the most affordable.
Neck liposuction can range anywhere from $2000 up to $3500, chin enlargement from $2500 up to $15000, a facelift can range anywhere from $4500 up to $16,000.

The key to liposuction is the quality of the skin and not the amount of fat removed. If the skin of the neck is tight it will recoil and redrape after liposuction. If the skin is lax then you will just get saggy skin. You may be a good candidate for liposuction of the neck and submental area. An examination is necessary to give you appropriate advice.
The cost of treating a double chin
the answer is is that it is variable. However in my office if it is truly just chin liposuction then the cost is approximately $3000. In our office that's with the added benefit of laser assisted liposuction in the form of SlimLipo. I've used Smartlipo as well as traditional liposuction by itself in my impression is that SlimLipo offers the best results in the chin, jaw line, neck area.I perform these procedures under local anesthesia with very nice results in very little downtime for the patients. If you choose to undergo a procedure like this under sedation or even general anesthesia you may find your costs increasing as much as $2500. adding a chin implant to the procedure will improve the look dramatically and has an added cost of around $2200

Liposuction to treat a double chin
Liposuction of the fat under the chin (Submental Liposuction) can be quite effective for treating a "double chin". The cost of this surgery usually varies from $2000 to $3000 depending on the amount of time needed and the type of anesthesia used. In my San Francisco Bay Area practice, I have found that the majority of patients tolerate this procedure very well under local anesthesia, with or without mild sedation. Other procedures performed simultaneously for appropriate candidates include chin implant placement and platysmal plication, the tightening of the bands in the neck. Patients who respond best to liposuction of the neck are those who retain a bit of fat under the chin despite being at their ideal weight.

In general, one area could cost you anywhere from $1500 to $3000 - of course this varies from surgeon to surgeon. Also, whether you have your surgery under local or general will change the price a little (general more expensive). If you are considering chin liposuction, I recommend you see consultation with an experienced surgeon - I'm sure they will be happy to give you a quote.
