Solutions for weak chin and jaw? (photo)

As you can see in the photo(1) I have a weak chin and jaw, even though I'm young, too much skin runs from my neck to my chin, what can be done to fix this? My jaw is a fine size, it's just the skin under my jaw that ruins the appearance of it! When I swallow all this skin contracts up under my jaw and it looks much more defined as shown in one of the photos (2) , is there anyway to make that permanent??

   A chin implant may be a reasonable treatment, but additional pictures or an exam would be necessary.
