I'm 18 and 100 Lbs, but Have Stubborn Chin Fat. I Also Have One Protruding Ear. How Much Would It Cost to Fix? (photo)

As I stated in the question, I'm 18 and very slim... yet i have somewhat of a double chin, which is definitely genetic (my brother, also slim, has the same problem). My left ear is also protruding... I was wondering how much procedures to fix these things would cost, what these procedures are, or even if non-surgical methods could be taken for my chin (or even my ear... maybe a strategically placed ear piercing to fake pin it back?). Thanks!

Hopefully this helps!

Costs for Chin Liposuction and Unilateral Otoplasty

You are an good candidate for chin liposuction. We would charge starting at $2000 + MD Anesthesia related expenses (if an MD Anesthesiologist is necessary on the case).

You are a candidate for unilateral otoplasty and the surgery would also start at at $2000 + MD Anesthesia related expenses (if an MD Anesthesiologist is necessary on the case).

Most surgeons would provide you some savings by combining the two procedures on the same surgical day. 

For the most cost effective procedure performed with the highest standard of care, consult with surgeons who own their own nationally accredited surgery center.

Stubborn chin fat & protruding ear

It appears that there is very minimal fat present in the neck and if it is certainly present, it would be a very small amount.  This could be removed with simple liposuction under a local anesthetic.  A single side otoplasty can also be performed under local anesthesia through a 1.5-inch incision behind the ear.  There are 2 small cuts made in the cartilage and the ear is folded over and sewn into place to match the opposite side.  The cost of the unilateral otoplasty is around $3,200 (surgery and operating room).  The cost of simple neck liposuction under local anesthesia is around $2,700.

In my internet opinion and not having examined you in person you can have Smart lipo of the chin and an unilateral otoplasty. Fee range from $4,000 to $8,000.

How to Fix Stubborn Chin Fat and a Protruding Ear

The answers to your questions are fairly straightforward. You would need some liposuction to remove the fat under your chin, and an otoplasty to correct the right ear. the bad news is that as much as it would be nice to do something non-invasively, there really are no good non-invasive ways to accomplish this. The good news is that both procedures could be done using a local anaesthetic in the office, saving you some money ($4,000- $7,000 total).Good luck.

I'm 18 and 100 lbs, but have stubborn chin fat. I also have one protruding ear. How much would it cost to fix?

Hello, I have reviewed your posted photos. You have a submental fat pad that can be removed by liposuction. The protruding ear will require a otoplasty to get it to be symmetrical with your right ear. These are both straight forward procedures in your case. The cost of the both procedures will be between $7,500 to $8,500. I advise you to consult with a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon. Good luck to you.
