Double chin treatments
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.

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 enhancement.
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 of luck.
