Interested in a Chin Implant & Removal of Some Fat in my Neck, but Had my Submandibular Gland Removed Due to Cancer?
Hi, 35yo female & I am interested in a chin implant & some neck fat removed. I am not overweight, just a small amount of fat in my neck. I have long face syndrome & a weak chin so I have been told an implant would help with my appearance. I also was a cancer patient 20 years ago & had my right side Submandibular Gland removed and have some numbness in my lip & chin area. Can the implant make the numbness worse & cause my right lip to droop? Should I have the fat snipped out or lipoed? I had post operative radiation therapy (right side neck + right side cheek area near my mouth/jaw) & then had scar tissue removed later in the same area that cancerous S. Gland was taken out. Does the neck rejuvenation consist of when the incision is made for the implant & a Dr. can also go in & snip out with a scissor some of the fat, would that be better, less invasive than Lipo? Thanks
