Chin liposuction is a simple operation performed under local anesthesia. It does not, however, address excess skin in the neck.
The photograph demonstrates fullness in the chin and neck region will that is probably contributed to by both excess fat and excess skin. The relative contribution is difficult to say. If fat is a major component liposuction might be a legitimate treatment option.

Loose skin under chin
Thanks for the photos. I was wondering if you lost some weight in the past and the saggy loose skin is a result of weight loss. It appears that you do not have a lot of fat under the chin and rather you are pinching loose skin in the photo. You may want to consider laser assisted skin tightening. Otherwise you may need a neck lift to reduce the loose skin. It's best to have an in person evaluation with a plastic surgeon to have your neck/chin region examined.
It looks as if you would be a great candidate for Submental Smartlipo. This will remove unwanted fat deposits while helping to tighten the skin under the chin. Consult with a surgeon to be sure this is the right procedure for you.

Is Chin Liposuction the Right Answer?
A profile picture would give us better information. Typically, this decision is best made with physical examination of the skin and fat beneath the chin. If you truly have excess skin then a cervicoplasty (removal and tightening of skin) is in order. The incision heals very well in men.
There are 2 locations of fat in the neck, above and below the platysma muscle. Removal of both is usually necessary during the male neck lift. Simple lipo will not give the desired result. Tightening of the platysma is also performed to give a new jawline contour
