Is 42 too old to have chin and neck Liposuction without ending up with a sagging skin? My skin is in good shape for my age, and I have always had this fat deposit in my neck and chin area, no matter how thin I am. I am just concerned about having too much loose skin after the procedure.

William Bruno, MD answers: Neck and chin lipo without the resulting loose skin

A: Neck liposuction results depend on your skin quality

If you have good elasticity of your skin, you should not have loose skin after liposuction based on your age and the photo above.  However, it is difficult to determine the best treatment for you without examining you in person.  You may require tightening of your neck muscle (platysma) in addition to liposuction to achieve an even better contour.  The skin of the front of the neck usually responds quite well to liposuction provided your skin tone is adequate; something that a board certified plastic surgeon could tell you during a complete consultation.

Best wishes.
