Which surgical procedure will best help define my chin & jawline? (photo)

Hello, I'm a fairly average 22 year old, could do with losing some weight, but not majorly out of shape. However my chin & jawline are awful, and as per the pictures. Which surgical procedure would suit me best and give me a more defined jawline and less of a double chin! Thanks.

Chin implant and neck liposuction to define chin and jawline

The combination of a chin implant and neck liposuction will give a better jawline and chin definition. Chin implants are manufactured in a variety of sizes and shapes, are inserted through a submental approach under local anesthesia. The liposuction the neck can also be performed under local anesthesia as well.

Chin implant

You appear to be a good candidate for chin implant and submental liposuction.  I think it would enhance your profile.

The most complete treatment involvesvtge underlying bone structures and the soft tissue. So ramal abd sliding genioplasty along with submandibular liposuction.
