Can you get rid of a double chin? If yes, how?

Can you get rid of a double chin If yes how, submitted image.

Does it have to be something dramatic like pulling the skin up to the sides and sewing it or something? Because that's scary. I don't know what else can get rid of the fat in that area. Can you have liposuction for just that area? I'm totally clueless when it comes to cosmetic stuff.

You have a variety of options. You seem to have good skin quality - based on your examination you may be a good candidate for liposuction to your neck. However, if you have any laxity, then you would be better off with a lower facelift with liposuction to your neck. While surgery can seem scary, sometimes with a lot of education and showing before and after photos of similarly-shaped patients, it can help to put your mind at ease.

Yes there are good minimally invasive option for removing fat to neck and chin. Liposuction is a very easy and quick operation with almost no recovery. Other less invasive options are Kybella injections, or cool sculpting. Good Luck!
