Thank you for your question and photograph.
It is important to be patient and discuss your concerns with your surgeon because they are most familiar with you anatomy and procedure. You are still quite early in your recovery and swelling is still present. Swelling occurs in all patients after smartlipo and can take up to 3-4 months to fully resolve. Not every patient heals at the same rate, some heal quicker and some heal slower than others but it is important to remember that you will probably look bigger before you look smaller and that is simply due to swelling. Its also beneficial to follow a high protein and low sodium diet. Best of luck in your recovery.

The chin usually heals very quickly and results should be seen in a few weeks, We suction away the melted fat after smartlipo. If the melted fat is left, your recovery and results will take longer to see. Massage and compression also help.
It can take over 2 months to see changes
you may see changes sooner, but allow at least 2 months for your neck/chin area to improve. you will continue to improve for 6 months.
I think almost all plastic surgeons, aspirate the area, (ie liposuction) after melting the fat with a laser. i wonder if you went to a PS???
be patient. you should get a nice improvement.

Smartlipo is a minimally invasive procedure, with very short downtime. The procedure takes a couple hours and you have amazing results! The Smartlipo uses a laser to go underneath the skin melt the fat, tighten the skin, and suction the fat out. Smartlipo kills and destroys 60-70 % of the fat cells in that area. Your best results in any area will be in 90 days (3 months). THe chin/jowl area have amazing results and respond very well! I hope this helps you on your journey! :)
