Best Answer For a Double Chin
Treatment for double chin fatty deposits in the neck
Submental fat treatments
I would suggest liposuction for submental fat or Kybella injections (which will take more than one treatment) with 6 weeks apart. The Instalift threads can be used if you find that there is just loose skin/laxity without significant fat. In your case, I would suggest liposuction would be the first choice.

Kybella and Smart Lipo
Thank you for your photo. Based on your photos I would recommend a combination treatment including Kybella and Smart Lipo. Kybella is an injectable product that can be used to help your body to rid itself of fat cells that form under the chin (submental fat). SmartLipo uses incredibly small incisions, and thanks to advanced laser technology, reduces damage to tissue surrounding the treatment area. SmartLipo also tightens the skin whereas traditional liposuction does not. For more information, I recommend getting a in person consultation with a board-certified dermatologist.
Silhouette Instalift and other non-surgical options
Thank you for your question and for sharing your photo. There are several great options that you can consider as an alternative to liposuction including: Kybella, Coolsculpting Mini, Profound RF, etc. We often combine these to get the best results. Liposuction is also a great option for you as well. I would recommend that you visit with a board certified plastic surgeon who is well versed with non-surgical options for the neck.
You do have an area in your neck where you have excess fat that we can treat
Liposuction may or may not be beneficial in a 40-year-old patient.
Start with liposuction
Have you read the reviews on the Silhouette Lift? I just checked the RealSelf review of the procedure. The first four were of horror stories.
I noticed you are just outside of Houston.
Go see one of the experts at Elite Body Sculpture in Houston. See the link below. They do some of the best work I have seen. They are patented and have superior equipment and expertise.
Ideally, get a couple of consults.
Best of luck,
