Non-invasive/little to no downtime neck and/or chin liposuction?
Only a handful of surgeons know of, let alone have the training and technology to offer this to their patients. Search your area for a physician that can offer you various options, including ThermiTight by ThermiAesthetics.

Liposuction or Ulthera
Another good option for you might be to try Ulthera. This technology uses micro-focused ultra sound to tighten area around the face and chin. It only requires one treatment to see results. OTC motrin or tylenol is all that is needed for pain management. Down time consists of 1-2 hours after the procedure that your skin might be red or feel discomfort.

However none of these procedures are truly weekend procedures.
Although they can be done under local anesthesia you will need to wear a compression garment for several days after the procedure and you should expect the possibility of bruising in the area and on your neck and swelling.
You need an honest recommendation. An my honest recommendation is that you should plan to not be placed into important social or work position for probably 7 to 10 days after the procedure no matter how minimal the procedure is.
You appear to be a candidate for submental liposuction. This is a relatively minor procedure that I commonly perform in my office. If the procedure is done on a Friday you can go back to work on Monday. The cost varies by 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!
