Based on your photo, you look to be an ideal candidate for Kybella. It's an injectable that targets the pocket of fat under the chin, dissolving it permanently. Schedule an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to be assessed in person and discuss. The results are really remarkable.
Kybella for the double chin
Kybella is the only FDA approved injectable drug used to treat the submental fat that causes a double chin. It destroys the fat cells and prevents the fat from reaccumulating. It has produced amazing results and is associated with very little downtime, with most going to work the next day. Depending on how much fat is in the submental region, the typical number of treatments ranged from 2-4 for maximal results. You would probably only require 1-2 treatments. Theoretically, the fat cells that are destroyed do not regenerate so it is considered a long lasting treatment.

Kybella is is a non surgical procedure to melt the fat. It consist of injecting a liquid that devolves your fat.
If your double chin is secondary to loose skin I would recommend tightening the skin utilizing a non surgical radio frequency device like the Viora or VelaShape.
