Kybella vs. Laser-Assisted Weekend Necklift
Your options include either Kybella or the Laser-Assisted Weekend Necklift. Kybella is the only-FDA approved injectable to improve the appearance of submental fullness, or double chin. This new-to-the-market technique allows minimal recovery time and quick results as many patients experienced visible results in two to four 15-20 minute in-office treatments. The Laser-Assisted Weekend Necklift is the technique that I created and refined. Please see the video attached.

- Tightening of the neck skin requires a direct approach to the neck. Options include the Precision Tx internal laser to improve the wrinkling, tighten the neck and reduce jowls and double chin. Liposuction of the submental region and jowls will tighten and smooth these areas. Botox or excision of Platysma muscle bands will improve subcutaneous banding. A neck lift will tighten neck skin; some patients are dissapointed due to recurrence of the fine wrinkles under the chin. Fillers in the area surrounding the corners of the mouth including fat injections and Artefil may be helpful.
Please consult in person with an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon prior to making treatment decisions.

You sound like you would do well with a lower facelift.

Thank you for your question.
Unfortunately I did not see any photos.
Without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of any further treatments it is difficult to be comprehensive.
Normally, in patients with laxity in the sub mental area (double chin) we consider liposuction to address the excess fat, and a neck lift/face lift to address the muscular and skin laxity.
I would consult with a facial plastic surgeon in your area who can help guide you through your options.
