Neck Tightening with Liposuction in Los Angeles
Depending on your skin ellasticity you might get a significant tightening of the neck with liposuction of the neck. The advantage of this procedure compared to a neck lift is that there are only several small stab incisions.

How do I improve my flat neck?
From the picture that you provided I think that your best option would be lipocontouring of the neck. This would help to remove excess fat and create a nice contour to the neck and jawline. This type of procedure can be done under local anesthetic with minimal downtime.

Having very good success with the minimal invasive Thermigen RF devise. Easy to do under local anesthesia, minimal swelling, fast results seen.
Your problem is not straightforward as seen by the different opinions by various surgeons. The issue is that the skin needs to be tightened and liposuction alone will not address that. It would improve the fullness under the chin. The fold that you have are in the same direction as the vector of pull used for a neck lift. Therefore, a surgical neck lift would not take care of some of the major folds. This is true for the thread lift. Radiofrequency tightening (a fine needle is placed under the skin and heats the skin from underneath causing skin tightening) may be your best choice.

Neck contouring options
Thank you for the question and the photo. Improving neck shape and contour can be accomplished in several ways including liposuction of the neck, chin/jaw augmentation, and neck lift. Which of these options would be best for you will require an in depth evaluation and discussion of what your goals. I suspect that Ulthera or Liposuction alone will provide a noticeable improvement. Liposuction can be combined with a chin/jaw implant if the projection of your chin is insufficient.
All the best,

Options toimprove neck contour.
To achieve an improvement in your neck contour, your best choices, from least invasive to most invasive, are: liposuction of the neck and a neck lift. The liposuction can be achieved through a few small 2-3 mm openings, and will help contour your neck and reduce the thickness of it. At 37, your skin should still have good elasticity and "snap back" well. A neck lift would allow you to tighten the skin and correct any issues with the underlying tissues such as tightening the muscles to define your neck contour. A physical exam would be required to understand your specific anatomy and tissue characteristics so I recommend seeing a board certified plastic surgeon for a consult.
Neck improvement at age 37
It is important that you mention that you wish a "flat" neck which I understand as excellent definition with a defined chin-neck angle.
Although there are effective non-surgical procedures for face and neck tightening (such as Ultherapy), none of these will accomplish what you are trying to achieve. Therefore, a thorough necklift can provide great improvements with excellent longevity.
I would not recommend neck liposuction.

Cosmetic Surgery is an Art and a Science
In my experience, a patient has two options. One is a neck lift and the other is carefully designed liposuction. More often than not, the two are combined. If you have a history of bad scars, try the liposuction first.This may be all you need. Get an opinion from a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. All the best
Necklift for the flat neck
A surgical necklift would be the best option determine if that above and below the platysma muscle in the neck. The 2 horizontal creases cannot be improved with surgery. Other examples are available on the link below.

Although it is impossible to be 100% sure, based on your submitted side view photo, my opinion is that open neckplasty is the most certain way to offer the beautiful trim smooth neck you desire. The reason is because only open neck plasty removes excess superficial and deep fat, tightens the entire platysma muscle, and promotes complete skin redistribution which will flatten and remove your creases. Cryotherapy (CoolSculpting), Thermage, Exilis, CoolTouch, and other skin tightening treatments will not remove enough fat. Liposuction (even SmartLipo or VASER) will not redistribute skin to remove creases. Open neckplasty is the gold standard. Examples of results on our gallery at the link here, and also on our facelift page. Although non-invasive technologies are improving, the dramatic results shown are not possible without open surgery.
