Chin Implant and Neck Lipo a Good Idea?
One way to look at your problem is to recognize that you lack volume or fullness in your chin and pre jowl area while you have excessive fullness in your jowl and perhaps a bit under your chin. So then you can address the problem by adding volume by doing autologous fat transfer to your chin and pre jowl area, and you can reduce volume in the jowl, jawline, and under chin area with facial liposuction. Actually I prefer a procedure called Precision Tx because it is more precise and you get the additional benefit of some skin tightening.

- First, be sure the orthognathic surgery is not an option -
- It is very invasive surgery but if your bite problem is severe, it may serve you well.
- Otherwise, you have a thoughtful plan - but may I note the following - .
- An extended chin implant is an excellent idea.
- You may not need liposuction under the chin once the implant is in place.
- A face lift will tighten the jowls -
- Please at your consultation also discuss a cheek implant - your upper fat appears to be flat and the source of the lower facial jowls.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Facelift at your age
All depends upon what you want to accomplish. The first sentence is revealing: You want a solution for your overbite! You will not be able to correct your overbite without orthognathic surgery. You do not have jowls nor saggy cheeks. Your facial proportions are consistent with someone who has a short lower face deficiency with overbite. Granted face lift is an invasive procedure and at your age would be ill advised. If one advances your mandible and maxilla you will have a much better "neck angle" and this would also improve your nasal-labial creases, help with your overbite and restore the lower 1/3rd of your face. With all due respect to my colleagues, you do not have microgenia (small chin) which would best be treated with a chin implant. I suspect that placing a chin implant will accentuate your chin further and not restore proper facial proportions.
I would consider a work-up with a orthognathic surgeon. I see this quite commonly in my practice where my patients are trying to accomplish goals and take short cuts. There are no short cuts in medicine! Best of luck.

During your #consultation, your skin texture and elasticity, as well as your underlying skin structure and your facial bone structure will be evaluated. Based on this evaluation, your board certified plastic surgeons will create a custom surgical plan, detailing specific techniques and recommendations to meet your goals. In doing so, he or she should be sure to have a full understanding of what results you expect.
However, if you are not a #candidate, your surgeon can make other suggestions to address your concerns and objectives.
The first step is to seek a board certified plastic surgeon who is highly trained with your desired procedures. I also encourage you to look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients. Also, reading patient reviews of those who have had combined surgeries will be beneficial. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.

Hi zeelab2021. Thank you for sharing photos. A chin implant and neck lipo are reasonable choices for cosmetic improvement but will not change your bite issues. During your consultation with a PS, your tissue mobility will be assessed and will determine whether a lift will provide any significant change-it does not appear so from the photos. Good luck!
