How to achieve a better-defined jawline.
However, I must agree with my oral and maxillofacial colleague Dr. Jamali--I believe you would benefit from an extended anatomic Flowers mandibular glove chin implant to strengthen your chi and jawline, as well as "taking-up" a small amount of skin and tightening it (especially important after fat removal, though less of an issue in a young man with good skin elasticity). I would, however, not do a chin implant alone or first; I would do all the above at one operation for maximum improvement with a single procedure.
I hope this has given you food for thought. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen

Procedure to get rid of double chin
This is a difficult question to answer accurately without seeing you in person. However, you may benefit, from what I see, from some submental liposuction. Another possibility may be mandibular implants. 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!

When carrying out this procedure it's important to really thin out the fat just below the skin. A small layer of fat is always left on top of the platysma (neck muscle) so that the skin does not get "stuck down".I make small incisions ( 3mm ) behind the earlobe and right under the chin.
Seek out a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with years of experience. Good luck
