A double chin can be due to excess fat in the chin area, early jowling in the area, and a small chin. Liposuction and a chin implant can improve the neck line. Alternatively, Kybella injections can help improve the neck fullness. Kybella is a non surgical option for patients with submental fullness.
There are various treatment options
Thanks for the
question and thanks for including the photos – they really help. You need to
make a consultation with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to
learn the various treatment options that exist for you. Then you can best learn
the various treatment options that are available for you. This will include
liposuction or laser-assisted liposuction; it may include Ultherapy; or it may
include one of the more sophisticated RF skin tightening devices, such as the
Venus Legacy, the EndyMed 3Deep, or the BTL Exilis.The RF will require several treatment sessions but nice
results can be obtained.A new drug, called ATX-101 is now
pending final approval at the FDA and will be used in this area once approved. Again,
a series of injections are needed for it to be successful, but clinical trials
show that fat can be destroyed and some tightening achieved in some that were

Chin and neck liposuction
Thank you for your clinical post and photos. You are young and have a very appropriate
weight and body mass index for you height.
In this scenario, often excess fat and subcutaneous tissue of the neck
is more of a hereditary rather than a caloric or weight loss problem. Double chins can be treated with modern
versions of liposuction that induce significant skin contraction, ensuring that
not only do you reduce the amount of fat on your under chin, but also tighten
the skin. These newer and more modern
liposuction techniques include SmartLipo™, BodyTite™, NeckTite™ and VASER®
Lipo™. I have been performing
liposuction for 20 years and over the past seven or eight years, these advanced
techniques have afforded the best possible neck contraction and contour
These procedures are
performed generally under local anaesthesia with light oral sedation and a very
small incision under the chin. These
various techniques use laser energy, ultrasound energy or radiofrequency
electrical current to liquefy the fat internally and create some heat, which
also stimulates skin and dermal contraction.
Generally, there is very little bruising and most people can return back
to work in several days with mild to moderate discomfort.
From the photos, it appears that you are an excellent
candidate for some of these modern techniques and for more information please
review the link below.
At this point in time, it would be wise to seek out several
well-trained physicians in the art and science of advanced modern liposuction
and seek consultation.
I hope this information has been of some assistance and best

Chin and neck liposuction candidate
Neck and chin liposuction are performed when there are fatty deposits in the neck. The sub-mental fat can be removed with traditional liposuction. If there is fatty deposits located in the sub-platysmal space, a neck lift with platysma plasty was required to remove it. For many examples, please see the link and the video below

Yes, you are a good candidate since you have good skin elasticity at this age and the fullness is quite nicely recontoured with this type of procedure. Quick recovery as well.
