Will my Jawline and Chin Sagging Worsen After Smart Lipo?

I am scheduled to have Smart Lipo along my jaw line and under my chin. I am very thin and do not need to have fat removed. The elasticity of my skin is not great and I have slight jowls and verticle bands pulling on my neck. My surgeon says Smart Lipo was made for cases just like mine. I am concerned after reading some of the comments that it could actually make my drooping skin problem worse. I am also concerned about the physician comment about the vascularization of the skin being compromised. I am 54 years old, fit and in good health.

Facelift or facial rejuvenation treatment may be better

It is difficult to make a suitable assessment without a physical exam, however you may not benefit from liposuction as much as you'd like. For jowls and sagging skin, a facelift or other facial and neck rejuvenating procedure may be better suited.

You may need neck lift

 You have lose skin and also no fat. I do laser lipo but I do not think you are a good candidate. Please get a second opinion and consider necklift.
