What is my best option for getting rid of double chin? Am I a candidate for Laser Lipo? (photos)

seems to be less invasive... I'm 33 and recently lost about 25 lbs, however it did not help with my double chin much. What would be my best option with the least amount of downtime and discomfort? any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm in dallas.

You did not appear to need intervention

Based on the photos you have shown, you have a strong masculine jawline and do not appear to need any intervention.

Make sure you are being cared for by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who will serve as a patient advocate first and foremost.

Best of luck,

In my practice I offer a combination of lipo + SmartLipo 12 watts blend 3 + ThermiSmoothRF under local anesthesia. Fee $2,500. 

Laser lipo is a good option

You are young and amount of sagging is limited. You should get a good result with laser lipo. Please do your homework and find a qualified board certified plastic surgeon.

Liposuction for neck/chin

Thanks for your pictures and questions.  It does appear that you would be a very good candidate for liposuction of your chin/neck.  Laser liposuction does offer some benefits such as less bruising/swelling and possibly some skin tightening that is not seen with traditional liposuction.  The area that bothers you is a common area to be treated by SmartLipo Triplex (laser assisted liposuction).  Feel free to contact my office if you have further questions and congrats on your weight loss!

Seems like a reasonable option for your problem. You should obtain good skin retraction post op and redefine your jawline.
