Without seeing a photograph it's difficult to give you advice. That said, you may want to consider either a face/neck lift or some liposuction in that area. There are many possible solutions. I would speak with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area and get an in person evaluation.

Good Luck!

lexiii,

The double or triple chin or neck can be one of the most difficult neck lifts. An examination would be required to make a determination of how best to address your concerns. Consider an ASPS Member in your area familiar with Facial Plastic Surgery.

Best,

Gary R Culbertson, MD, FACS

Thank you for sharing your question and I am sorry to hear that your chin has caused you concern. Depending on the quality of your neck skin you may be able to have liposuction performed to help reduce its bulk, or if the skin is loose, then a neck lift would be you best option. Hope this helps.

It sounds like you are concerned about your submental area (the area behind the actual chin down towards the neck). Sometimes, if you have mild fullness here, a chin augmentation will help. But if it is more severe, liposuction of this area with or without a facelift or necklift is usually needed. A small chin implant can help improve the result further sometimes.

Expert plastic surgeons offer various solutions for double chin problems. They begin with non-surgical treatment with Kybella injections or Coolsculpting fat reduction. Next considerations are liposuction fat removal without skin tightening. Finally there are neck lifts which include fat removal, muscle tightening, skin re-draping, possibly including cheek and jowl contouring as well (facelift). These options are based on the specifics of your situation, anatomy, skin characteristics, and expectations. Your local board-certified plastic surgeons should be consulted to learn your best options.
