Cost of double chin removal and healing time

Hello and thank you for your question.
Unfortunately there's no good way to answer your question without at least a picture. It's possible you may benefit from liposuction of the the submental region/neck. The cost can vary based on the doctor and location. 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!

The cost can vary by location and by what procedures are done. Correcting a double chin can comprise liposuction of excess fatty tissue and/or procedures to tighten the skin and muscle laxity.

Lots of variables, like age, neck skin, amount of fat and positoin of chin and jaw.  I am happ to look at some pictures niamtu@niamtu.com.

Chin implants are about $4K and lipo in that area is about $1,500

Cost for a double chin

+1
 It's impossible to give a  price quote without looking at any photographs. The double chin can be caused by a combination of a weak chin profile and  fatty deposits in the neck.
A weak chin profile is addressed by placing a Silastic chin implant through a sub mental incision to give further chin projection and a better jawline In help with facial balance.
The double chin can be composed of fatty deposits above and below the platysma also. Sub-mental fat can be removed with liposuction, however sub-platysmal fat must be removed with a neck lift. Once any sub-platysmal fat is removed, a platysma-plasty must be performed
Expect 2 weeks of some degree bruising and swelling after any cosmetic surgical procedure in the neck
