Liposuction will not tighten loose neck and jaw line skin
Therefore you will be disappointed with the results of liposuction or laser liposuction of the chin and neck.
Since you have tried the best available skin tightening techniques and are unsatisfied with the results I would urge you not to spend more on a procedure that will not tighten the skin shown in the photograph. Please consult a board certified plastic surgeon and consider having a proper neck and lower facelift for the best possible result.
Skin or fat on jawline
My guess is that further non-invasive treatments were recommended to you by someone not certified to offer the full gamut of procedures designed for facial rejuvenation. Sometimes a surgical procedure is necessary and in your case, if redefining your jaw line is your goal, non of the non-surgical methods will do this effectively, unfortunately. You may have some excess fat as well, but that can be removed at the time of the face/neck lift procedure.I recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is performed.
Best of luck to you!
