Is it a easy thing to get a bit of under chin/neck area liposuction ?
How is the post op look during recovery ? I cant get rid of this problem without losing an incredible amount of pounds . It is unreasonable to me to keep a ton of weight like 40-50 pounds off long term .

Neck lift is another type of surgery.

Neck lift involves cutting and tightening the platysma muscle (neck muscle). It's a bigger procedure and a general anaesthetic.

Lipo involves just sucking out the fat.

Look into Smart Lipo (laser) or Vaser Lipo (ultrasonics) for removing the fat. Quick procedure and only a local anaesthetic.

do you know a good doctor for this? i want to do it for cosmetic reasons
they have neck liposuction
compared to other surgeries i think its not extremely expensive
maybe 2k or so ballpark?
but depends on the location, and maybe how much fat you need removed (not sure, or maybe its just a fixed price)

Be careful! Despite the rabid claims of essentially all laser lipo clinics with all different types of laser lipo, many forms of laser lipo don't actually destroy the fat cells or permanently remove them like real liposuction, they just cause them to release their fat stores and make you look thinner in the treated area for a little bit, but your body will fill those fat cells right back up, eventually. The key is to get rid of the fat cells permanently.

See here: Laser Liposuction - Fat Removal Skin Tightening Procedure
(Skin/dermatology blog/forum that's not try to sell you laser lipo; never take the word of a plastic surgery clinic's web site, they're just trying to sell you something whether it works or not)

As I understand it, at least one of the types of laser lipo actually fries and kill off the fat cells permanently... I can't remember which one though. Just be discerning and realistic, and make sure you thoroughly research whatever kind you go for.

My aunt had a neck surgery (from her goiter or something) and after 10 years (more or less), her neck seem as little soggy but she covers it with make up pretty well.

...soggy? or saggy? Also, reducing neck fat is generally now done with precision laser-assisted lipo, like SmartLipo or SlimLipo. The cannula (the fat-sucking wand they insert under the skin) is half the size as the old kind or smaller, and the laser beam's heat and frequency stimulates the subcutaneous (meaning directly under the skin) collagen to contract and thus tighten the skin up as well, eliminating the whole post-lipo flabbly skin thing.

Look into non-invasive options such as Exilis which not only breaks up fat which is then excreted, but it also tightens the skin. A quick google search of "Exilis neck" will show you what it's capable of. I own an Exilis machine and it can produce some excellent results on the right patient.

Find a good Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and do your research.
