Small amount of loose skin under your neck
You would do fantastic with a neck lift and based on your examination, consider a mini lift. You may be able to get away with just an incision under your chin, but if there is significant skin laxity or looseness, an small incision around your earlobes and behind your ear (mini lift) would be an option.
Other noninvasive options would probably not work, but I will defer to physicians who actually do those to comment. Good luck!

From the photo, the cheeks appear a bit flat in the front. Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, women look the most feminine, youthful and attractive with heart shaped faces. Heart shaped faces have cheeks that are full and round in the front. Cheek augmentation using a dermal filler (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or with cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks anteriorly that will feminize the entire face.
Hope this helps.
You are absolutely right. Removing fat from your already thin neck could potentially be disastrous and hard to correct. Were these board-certified plastic surgeons you visited?
The answer to your question would depend upon physical exam. This is because from your picture alone it is impossible to tell if that rippling is due to simply excess skin, versus the edges of your platysma muscle. The two treatments are different. It is simple skin, I would recommend some noninvasive skin tightening modality or laser. If it is the muscle edge, you would need an anterior platysma-plasty.
Make some more consultations, and make certain they are board-certified by the American Board of plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

Mini lift should help
The side to side lift in an upward direction tightens the excess skin under the chin.
Kybella is a great solution to loose neck fat, however, you seem to be a better candidate for the laser-assisted weekend necklift because it tightens the neck and jowl area with laser technology that can target the unwanted areas directly.
