Cost of Mini Lift for Under the Chin ?

How much does a Mini Lift cost for the loose skin under my chin? I have a double chin that's not too bad; but bad enough to make me feel unhappy when I look at it.

That lose skin under the chin can usually be removed easily with a platysmaplasty or neck surgery under local anesthesia with a little liposuction included for $5500 and you are back to work in 2 days. Sincerely,

In our practice, we rarely ever perform a mini lift, since it gives mini results. A lower face and neck lift accomplishes tightening loose facial and neck skin, tightening loose facial and neck muscles, lifting the jowls, and removing the fatty deposits in the neck along with a platysma-plasty. For many examples, please see the link and the video below

Mini lift for skin under chin

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Skin under the chin can be deceiving to many people.  Most people think they can get a mini neck lift or necklift alone for this area.  In reality, most people need a combination of a minifacelift with or without volume to address this.

As we age, we lose volume in the face which causes skin to 'pool' under the chin; we also lose elasticity in the face and neck which causes the skin to sag in this area.  Depending on your age and the way you have been aging, you may need one or both to address.

Mini Lift Nitty Gritty

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Ours costs between 6000 to 8000 depending upon whether it is 1) performed in the office under local anesthesia or at a surgery center with general anesthesia, 2) performed with or without a submentoplasty.

Our lift is mini, but it is still has real results, so we expect patients to be at home for 1 week. Be wary of claims of recovery within a few days as these claims are either exaggerated or not enough surgery was performed to obtain a significant, long-lasting result.

Mini neck lift

Cost will vary with geography, surgeon characteristics (fellowship trained in cosmetics vs residency training only) and the specific type of lift you need (there are many). 

The key issue here is selecting the proper procedure for your needs though, and even though one may desire a mini lift, that may not be the exact correct procedure for them. Specific aspects beyond a mini lift can be strategically and specifically addressed to blur the lines between a mini and full lift, including addressing the neck, which is often the case. 

The cost of the lift should be based on the amount of procedure necessary to meet your individual needs. 

You should be able to see lots of before and after photos from your surgeon, you should be able to call other patients who have had the procedure, and your surgeon should have a good reputation with his or her physician colleagues and patients. 

Fellowship training is important, surgeons simply do not perform enough cases in residency. A plastic surgeon may have seen (not performed) 5 facelifts in residency training and be board certified, as there is no minimum on that individual procedure, but a fellowship trained surgeon will likely have added 40-50 or more facelifts to that baseline training. There is no substitute for the focused fellowship training. 

Fellowship training for me means that I trained on a large number of procedures and learned to approach rejuvenation in many different ways. That means each lift I perform is different and individualized. It also means each is proficient and efficient, allowing the use of local anesthesia only when appropriate. 

Facelifts utilizing mainly local anesthesia, often with some mild to moderate sedation, mean safer procedures and faster recovery at home versus staying in the hospital, but they take a skilled surgeon to perform. 

To ensure you are receiving the highest level of care, seek out a modernly trained, new-school dermatologic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who is board certified and fellowship trained in one of these "core four" cosmetic specialties.

Hi Angel in the Morning

If your skin is loose, sagging or creating the appearance of jowls you may be a good candidate for Concept™ Facelift Surgery. This type of Rhytidectomy is unique as the facelift is performed under local anaesthetic, and is less invasive than traditional methods, meaning the cosmetic surgery has a significantly faster recovery time.

The cosmetic procedure is similar to a mini facelift as it is performed with a short scar that runs in front of the ear, down to the ear lobe and tucked behind the ear. There will be no dressings or drains afterwards. This is performed as a day case, walk in-walk out procedure with minimal bruising and downtime.

You may however just be OK with liposuction. However this may not address the loose skin. This may require a neck lift.

Make sure you find a qualified and experienced surgeon with whom you can address your concerns and subject to consult they should be able to achieve what you are after.

All the best

Under the Chin Mini Lift - Cost

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Thank you for your question.

Typically a mini-lift does not treat the area under the chin.  A standard facelift, lower face and neck lift or a neck lift alone will address this problem.  If you have a small amount of fatty tissue under the chin with minimal skin laxity a mini-lift combined with neck liposuction may be an excellent option.

It is best you seek consultation with a Board Certified plastic surgeon to discuss all your options.

Happy New Year! Good luck!

It is difficult to quote a fee without a photo and understanding of your objectives. Moreover, it is unlikely that a mini facelift is the appropriate procedure to address your neck. Consult with 2 - 3 board certified plastic surgeons to understand your treatment options.

Mini-lift and cost

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

It is difficult to quote a general fee without seeing what bothers you exactly. If it is just liposuction that is one thing, but if it is a lower face or neck lift that is another.
