How Can I Get Rid Of My Double Chin?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Very unhappy with my double chin which has been an issue side since I was 20 . Looking at a procedure with liposuction and tightening the little bit of lose skin I have. 

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. In improving your double chin the debate is between liposuction alone vs a submentoplasty. (liposuction, deep subplatysmal fat removal and midline platysmal muscle tightening) Given the thicker tissue of your neck I would favor the latter since it more completely treats the fuller neck. I don’t think you have enough loose skin to justify a jowl tuck procedure
