There is no way to know without an in-person examination whether any of those options will achieve the desired result. Ultherapy might be the answer if skin tone is not too lax, and it might give an enhanced result in combination with liposuction. Best to consult a plastic surgeon who does facelifts and ultherapy.
Neither of the treatments you propose will work well if there is any significant issue going on with laxity, jowling or descent of the cheek. Neither will they correct any dramatic asymmetry.

When there is excess fat pad along jowls, there is a new procedure called SideLaze lift that can help to melt the fat pads using Cynosure PrecisionTx (formerly known as SideLaze800) and the clinical result is even better with minor facial/neck liposuction. This new revolutionary technique achieves clinical results that approximate that of mini-facelift for the lower half of the face without the downtime or risks associated with mini-facelift. Ultherapy is still a viable option for people who...
If there is localized collection of fat in the lower face without much of skin laxity Facial Liposuction would be an option. if there is skin laxity along with it which is uslly the case in many patients then u might benefit from facelift.
