double chin. lower face lift/necklift or liposuction?

Hi, I have had a double chin my whole life. I am slim but have never had a jaw line and now i'm 38 it is really bad. I have decided I have to do something about it. Can anyone please recommend if I would need lipo or facelift? and approximate cost etc? Many thanks :)

    Hi there Abfab.
    Thank you for posting your photos and questions. 
    It would be helpful to see a front-on photo as well as a photo that shows the relation of your nose to your chin. However, from what I can see, you may be deficient in the projection of your chin. This can often reduce the overall masculinity of the face, and make the lower face blend onto the neck. 
    Liposuction can certainly be considered to reduce fullness of the submental region; however, the balance of your face and definition of your jaw may never be ideal without addressing the underlying bony architecture, 
    Hope this information helps.
