Chin Liposuction in Midwest, US: $1000-$1500

Chin liposuction costs vary and are dependent upon multiple factors.  These include the surgeon’s fee, facility fee, anesthesia charges, location of the liposuction procedure and the type of liposuction performed.  The approach to liposuction varies from physician to physician.  Some surgeons use general anesthesia, some use a hospital, and some use techniques that involve expensive technology.  Each of these variables can affect the cost of chin liposuction.

Obtaining liposuction fee quotes on the telephone or internet can be confusing.  Therefore, it’s important to meet with a physician and know exactly what he or she is talking about.  Make sure you’re not talking apples and oranges and that you’re getting a fee quote for a comparable procedure.

In the Midwestern United States, chin liposuction fees range from $1000 to $1500. This would typically include the surgeons fee, facility fee, anesthesia charges and after care.

Cost is obviously important, but it’s also important to be comfortable with the surgeon’s qualifications and experience.  Make sure you get all your questions answered and are comfortable with your surgeon.

Kybella: A Perfect Solution to Permanently Treating Double Chins

Kybella is an exciting new FDA- approved treatment for submental fullness, or double chin. Kybella (Deoxycholic Acid) is injected into the fat pad under the chin for permanent results. Often 2 or 3 treatments are needed to completely contour the chin and remove the unwanted fat. A skillfully trained provider can determine if you are a candidate for Kybella vs other surgical neck procedures.
The procedure is safe and effects are evident even after one treatment!   The cost will vary based on the amount of area treated and the number of sessions recommended.

 The cost range could be anywhere from $1500-6000 dollars depending upon what is done. Simple liposuction of the sub-mental fat under local anesthesia will be the cheapest.The cost of any cosmetic procedure is driven by 3 factors. These are anesthesia doctor's fee, operating room a fee, and surgeons fee. A full neck lift with  removal of sub-platysmal and sub-mental fat and a platysma-plasty could cost approximately $6000. Expect 2 weeks of bruising and swelling regardless of what procedures being performed. For more information, our price list, and neck lift photo gallery, please see  the link below

Costs of KYBELLA Treatments

Kybella is an amazing injection to dissolve the fat under the chin. The number of treatments depends on the individual fat under the chin and how many units of Kybella are injected. The average series of injections of Kybella is two to four injections. You need to wait 6 to 8 weeks in between injections. The results are permanent and the costs will vary depending on the amount of areas treated and the number of sessions.

Double chin costs

Thank you for your question. There are several options for contouring the double chin area.

Non surgical options include:
1) Kybella to dissolve the fatty tissue in the submental area
2) Cool-mini treatment from Coolsculpting to target the same area
3) Adding a skin tightening device such as Ulthera or Profound to the neck tissue in conjunction with the one of the above to further tighten the skin.

The more you combine or repeat these options, the better the result, however, the cost will go up.

I would recommend that you visit with a board certified plastic surgeon who offers the various options above to discuss the pros/cons of each option and help you decide which is the best for you.

Cost of Neck Liposuction

The cost of surgery shouldn't be your only concern when choosing a plastic surgeon for your procedure. Determine his experience, training, reputation, before and after photos, and revision rate. In Atlanta, chin liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia or under sedation. Though local anesthesia sounds like a good idea, the neck has to be injected with numbing medicine from ear to ear all the way across the neck which can be several needle sticks. The procedure takes 15 minutes under sedation and I think this would be a much more comfortable procedure. In Atlanta, chin liposuction with sedation ranges from $2000-$4000 depending on the surgeon's experience.

Over the age of 45, many people lose skin elasticity and, if you fall into that category, you may need a neck lift along with the neck liposuction so the skin doesn't hang afterwards.  The best way to determine if you are a candidate for either is to visit a surgeon who specializes in facial plastic surgery procedures.

Neck liposuction

The key to liposuction is the quality of the skin and not the amount of fat removed.  If the skin of the neck is tight it will recoil and redrape after liposuction. If the skin is lax then you will just get saggy skin.  You may be a good candidate for liposuction of the neck and submental area.  An examination is necessary to give you appropriate advice.

The cost of treating a double chin

the answer is is that it is variable. However in my office if it is truly just chin liposuction then the cost is approximately $3000. In our office that's with the added benefit of laser assisted liposuction in the form of SlimLipo. I've used Smartlipo as well as traditional liposuction by itself in my impression is that SlimLipo offers the best results in the chin, jaw line, neck area.I perform these procedures under local anesthesia with very nice results in very little downtime for the patients. If you choose to undergo a procedure like this under sedation or even general anesthesia you may find your costs increasing as much as $2500.  adding a chin implant to the procedure will improve the look dramatically and has an added cost of around $2200

Double Chin Liposuction Fee

We would charge starting at $1000-2500 + MD Anesthesia related expenses (if an MD Anesthesiologist is necessary on the case). 

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

To understand your options, consult with 3 experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons.
