I am 42 years old and had Smartlipo on my chin/neck area 2 years ago. I am left with sagging skin under chin area on neck, not jowls. What can be done to tighten that up? I look older now than I did before I had the Smartlipo. Disappointed to say the least.

Next step most likely a lower facelift
I am in agreement with the other plastic surgeons regarding the need for a lower facelift. While the smart lipo does a nice job with the excess adipose tissue of the neck and jowls it does not adequately address the skin laxity and lack of fascial support.
Have a question? Ask a doctor
One of the risks of smart lipo is that the skin will not tighten enough. At this point I think you need a traditional face and neck lift. Generally, isolated posterior neck lifts don't quite get the job done. Do it right this time
Lax neck skin needs a neck lift or lower facelift
The best way to properly and naturally tighten the lax skin in the neck is to have a lower facelift done. The loose skin is mobilized, the underlying tissues are tightened and the skin is gently redraped and removed leaving a natural look.
