Good candidate for laser liposuction of the chin and neck
Since you are young and have good skin tone it is likely that laser-assisted liposuction of the submental (beneath the chin) laser-assisted liposuction will remove much of the fat and improve your double chin.
Please consult an expert who has experience with laser liposuction and an excellent reputation in your community.

Anatomically I would say you're a good candidate and being young with toned skin is an advantage for you. Some people may say traditional liposuction will work just fine and your case and I would generally agree but I think there are advantages to having the laser assisting component to tighten the skin a bit more.
I'll attach a little information I hope you find useful

Do your research on the specific surgeon and his experience with liposuction. More important than laser lipo or traditional lipo is the experience in lipo of the performing surgeon. Laser liposuction is not dramatically different than traditional lipo, it is just preceded by laser skin tightening. In my practice, I perform laser liposuction mainly, however many excellent plastic surgeons perfrom traditional lipo.
