A combination of a radiofrequency lift, injection lipolysis and a laser resurfacing would be needed.

Upon thorough facial exam, you would likely benefit from mid and lower face augmentation with dermal fillers, along with Botox treatment of the mentalis muscle of the chin as well as treatment of the double chin with Belkyra (Kybella in the USA). Hope this information helps.
Non-surgical face lift options
Your non-surgical options are dictated by your specific needs which may include any of the below measures:
1)Improving your wrinkles: Botox
2)Improving your loss of volume: Radiesse
3)Improving your texture: Erbium facial resurfacing.
4)Improving skin looseness: VIORA REACTION radiofrequency
To reduce prominence and tighten your skin without surgical anesthesia, you can consider a combination of liposuction to remove unwanted fat and subsequent Viora reaction radiofrequency tightening of your skin all done without surgical anesthesia. Please make a consultation to provide you details of these two minimally invasive procedures.
Noninvasive treatment options.
Ultherapy is a Non Invasive Procedure Available
Some of your options include combination therapy with a filler for the volume loss on your face and either Ultherapy or one of the radiofrequency (RF) procedures for the neck and jowls. I would consider using Voluma or Perlane into the mid face areas to replace volume. Then Ultherapy, or fractional ultrasound, can work very well on tightening of the neck and lower face and jowls. One Ultherapy treatment is usually all that is needed. Or one can have a series of RF skin tightening procedures with some of the more sophisticated RF devices – the Venus Legacy, the EndyMed 3Deep, the Alma Accent or VShape, of the Exilis Elite – all work here.
In addition, a good skin care routine is important and I would recommend consultation with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to learn all the newer options and what is best for you.
Improving face and neck without surgery
Laser and peels of the neck will give you some tightening.
You will need a series of treatments.
Fillers can soften the appearance of the jowls.
But for a chiseled look and permanent results, there is no non-surgical treatment.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
When a facelift is not chosen, some minimally invasive procedures can improve the lower face, jowls and jawline
I stress to my NYC patients that a facelift is typically going to produce the best improvement in lower face lifting for sagging skin and its longevity is greater than the average non surgical treatment. However, there are so many patients that are not ready for surgery or want to avoid it. Once they understand that possibly, without guarantee despite them being good candidates for the procedure based on my examination, they might get a good improvement, we often have to consider a combination of botox to lift the corners of the mouth by relaxing the downward pull by some muscle groups, Ultherapy or ThermiSmooth tightening, and possibly volumizing by fillers in areas that have lost structural support near the upper cheeks. Minimally invasive procedures that do create some downtime but don't involve cutting, include ThermiTight and suture lifting with InstaLift. Many energy-based treatments involve one's body's healing response to develop more collagen and the tightening procedure continues for at least six months to 18 months after the procedure and some results can last more than two years as we continue to fight the aging effects on our face.
