I suggest you wait until the 3-4 month mark to determine whether the results are satisfactory. All the best!
Improvement after liposuction of the chin may take six weeks or more.
Be patient, I think you will have an excellent result!
I had Neck Liposuction 6 days ago...
As you indicated, you are only 6 days following your procedure. You have a great outcome to date, even if additional improvement is not achieved. I do believe you will see even further improvement in the weeks and months ahead. Continue to discuss your concerns with your surgeon.
Liposuction in the submental area reduces the fat that is just under the skin. You may have additional fat in an area that we refer to as "subplatysmal fat". This is not addressed with liposuction but can be removed by placing an incision in the area where your liposuction access incision was placed. Under direct vision the subplatysmal fat can be removed. This is a possible consideration if you and your surgeon believe further improvement is desirable.
Be patient. You look great!

I believe you're still going through the healing process. This can take from 4-12 weeks for you to see actual results. A neck garment should be worn for 2 weeks after surgery to help the skin stick back to the muscle and achieve smoother and great results.
