Chin Liposuction Unsuccessful - Syracuse, NY

I’ve always had a double chin, and hated the way it looked. So I decided to get chin liposuction to correct the problem. I was initially very happy with the results, the double chin was COMPLETELY gone and looked amazing. However, I’m now 5 weeks post op and when I go for 24 hours or so without wearing my compression garment, my double chin seems to “reappear”.

The area becomes tender and sore to the touch, I cannot extend my neck fully without a stretching feeling, and my skin gets warm- the only thing that helps is massage or wearing the compression garment again. I’m very disappointed because I feel like the great results I initially had were just temporary side effects of the compression garment. Or is the reappearance of the double chin just simply due to swelling?

I was careful and made sure to choose my surgeon carefully, as he is board certified. But I’m wondering now if maybe that doesn’t make such a big difference after all…
