Hello, here is my story: I got chin liposuction (smart lipo) a little under a year ago - February 2013 to be precise. On the day of surgery, my "surgeon" (he is not board certified) to do jawline lipo as well and I agreed. Post surgery I ballooned in swelling and that lasted quite some time.. I also still have a double chin but I digress. My facial structure is typically a v-shape and it has squared in addition to being uneven. What can I do - is this still post op swelling or fat?
Is this residual swelling or face fat? If I lose weight, will I lose this jowl-like/square like appearance?

If you are not happy with the advice of your surgeon seek a second opinion from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Chin liposuction swelling
- At 10 months, you are probably near your final result for your chin and jaw liposuction,
- I suggest seeing a better qualified plastic surgeon to discuss your result. Best wishes.

By one year your swelling should have disappeared. It would be best to be seen in person to get a better idea.
