Smoothing out neck and jaw line

The neck flexion creases that are present cannot be removed.  There is a small amount of fat in the submental area that can be addressed with simple liposuction through a small incision at the submental crease.  It is very safe to perform liposuction in the submental area, which can be done under a local anesthesia.

Enhancing the Jaw Line and Neck

From what you are describing, liposuction of the neck and jaw region would give you a more defined profile. This is a safe procedure when performed by an experienced surgeon.  There is very little down-time with this procedure and you should have a quick recovery.  Depending on the part of the country that you elect to have the surgery, the general costs would be approximately $3,500-$5,000. The fee includes the surgeons fee, operating room fee and the anesthesia fee.  Good Luck!

Properly done liposuction or your neck thru a quarter inch incision in the crease will achieve your goal with a few days off work.
