Neck liposuction would be great for this.

Neck liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia in an office setting with minimal down time.  It is typical to have this procedure on a friday and be back at work on monday.

Improving the appearance of a double chin

Submental/jowl liposuction is a great option for removing fat in the chin/neck area. This procedure can yield fantastic results when performed properly, and there is very little down time. Looking at your photo, you may also benefit from a small chin implant to further enhance your profile.  I think you would be really happy with the outcome! From here, I would recommend a consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon. He/she will be able to make recommendations for you based on your individual needs. I hope this helps, and best of luck to you!

It’s difficult to tell because of the size of your photo, but it’s possible that you would benefit from either liposuction of the area, or from a small chin implant.  You could need both.

Liposuction works great for double chin young adults

Liposuction works great for double chin young adults - especially from those with extra fat that runs in families. Because you are young you have great skin elasticity so you should have a predictably great result. It can be done in the office under local anesthesia.
