Best treatment for fat under chin and jawline contouring? Healthy 28yr M, 5'11 -180lb

This post originally appeared on Realself.com.

No medical conditions. Looking for some advice related to removing fat under my chin (even had when was considerably thinner at 160 in my younger years) and contouring of my jaw line. Currently it looks like I don't have a jaw or neck and when I bend my neck there is a very pronounced double chin. Would laser produce a flat projection under the chin? Is it possible to also do minimal liposuction of the cheeks (along the jawline) to enhance the jaw? What about Kybella (as effective as laser lipo)?

Laser Lipo of Chin/Neck
Hi. After reviewing your photos it appears you would be a good candidate for Smartlipo of the chin/neck. With Smartlipo (laser liposuction) you will see a reduction in the fat and also tightening and toning of the skin. This will result in a contoured jawline. This type of procedure can be done under local anesthetic with minimal downtime. You should consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck.
