Chin liposuction Gold Coast / Brisbane

Hi there, I'm looking at getting a chin/neck liposuction done. Ideally it would be a Vaser one. I can't seem to find a qualified surgeon in the Gold Coast / Brisbane area that does Vaser! By qualified I mean one who's a member of FRACS, M.B.B.S, F.R.C.S... Also I would like your opinion on my chin. Do you think I would need a chin implant? Not sure I'm ready for it just yet but wonder if you would recommend it. Thank you so much for your help, I'm really looking forward to finding the good surgeon!

    Thanks for your post.

    Neck liposuction works well for those patients under 35, which your photos suggest you are. I would personally avoid Vaser, as in my hands I can achieve good results in your age group using traditional techniques and small diameter cannulas, with less risk of damaging the skin. With regards to a chin implant, this needs to be assessed in balance with your full face, taking into account particularly your nose and cheek bones. Facial harmony is about balancing all the parts.

    With best wishes,

    Hi. Thank you for your post.
    The chin is best assessed in relation to the nose. Judging from the available photo where I can just see the nose, it seems like your chin may be a little under-projected. An under-projected chin can be augmented two ways. The first is with a chin implant, and these can be made of various materials such as silicone or porous polyethelene. The other way is called an osseous genioplasty, whereby the bone of the chin is cut, moved, and secured in a better and more aesthetically pleasing position. Augmenting the chin can be done in conjunction with some sub-mental (chin/neck) traditional or power assisted liposuction if indicated.
    I hope this information helps. Feel free to contact my friendly staff if you have any other questions.
    Warm regards,
