Kybella & Voluma
Based on your desired results, it sounds as if you'd benefit from a combination of Kybella to slim under the chin and Voluma to augment the cheeks. Schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to be assessed in person.
Neck area and Defining Jaw
You would benefit from Kybella in your jaw and Voluma in your cheeks to give you the look that you want. I also combine these treatments with Thermage to give the best skin tightening results in your jaw line. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Voluma is your best bet
You have to wait for a result with Kybella, and I personally would not be comfortable putting it in someone's cheeks. Besides being an off-label use, you should familiarize yourself with the "down-time" of what happens with Kybella after the injections are done. Things like numbness, swelling, lumpiness are a bit easier to live with for weeks when it is hidden below the chin than on the open exposed cheeks. Kybella is not reversible. The amount of fat that dissolves is not completely controllable.
I would suggest you seek out a Board Certified Dermatologist who is experienced with facial fillers. Best regards, Marla Klein MD

Kybella vs Coolmini vs Liposuction
There are multiple factors that go into answering this question...
If there is a lot of fat, liposuction is your best bet. This can be done in-office under local anesthesia.
If surgery is not something you are comfortable with, Coolsculpting would be your best bet financially... as long as the Coolsculpting applicator fits and you are okay with more time to see full results (than liposuction). If your jaw is too small or the amount of fat too little, the CoolMini may not fit.
Lastly, if you have a small amount of fat and the CoolMini applicator doesn't fit your face, I would go with Kybella. There is a significant recovery period with Kybella and the product is not cheap. That is why I reserve it for people with a small amount of submental fat.

Facial Sculpting Using Fillers Like Voluma, Radiesse, Lyft, Juvederm and Sculptra and Fat; VaserLipo, Botox to Jaw
There are several fillers which I think could work very well. Voluma will help to improve your midfacial region, and can even help to lift (slightly) the lower face. This filler can also help to soften the "roundness" of the face, and give a more youthful, heart-shaped appearance.
Be sure to consult with a board certified facial plastic or general plastic surgeon who specializes in facial fillers and Kybella. I hope that this helps!
