Try Smartlipo To Tighten Skin
I'm attaching a link to one example in particular.

SmartLipo uses laser energy to break up fat cells and the controlled thermal effect can result in more skin retraction and less bruising than mechanical liposuction when performed by an appropriately trained and experienced surgeon.
Vaser ultrasonic liposuction uses ultrasound energy to disrupt fat cell connections and allow for removal of excess fat with less trauma and injury to surrounding blood Both methods depend on adequate contractile tissue in the neck and skin elasticity so it would be important to review your pictures in order to determine the best procedure.
As mentioned above, the training and experience of the treating physician as well as proper patient selection are critical to safe and optimal results.

Without a photo or an in person examination there is no way to say anything definitively. With that being said if you do have a small amount of fat in the submental area, and good skin elasticity, traditional liposuctionshould be a good option for you. I perform the procedure with and without the laser, and being honest, there can be downsides to using the laser so I certainly do not recommend it unless I feel the patient will gain something from its use. I recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is performed.
Best of Luck to you!
Both systems will work
Hi. Other than marketing hype, there's not much proven advantage to one machine over another in your situation. Better to pick a surgeon who is skilled in liposuction, and let them use the technique that gives them the best results. You should be able to get a nice result with either laser assisted liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, power assisted liposuction, standard liposuction or water jet liposuction.
It's not the hammer that makes the difference, it's the carpenter.
