Double Chin: It may be very difficult to lose the fat in your double chin. If weight loss by diet and exercise doesn't do the trick, you may want to consider liposuction or platysmaplasty, or even a facelift. At you age, if you don't have excess skin, liposuction is likely the best place to start. See a good, reputable facial cosmetic surgeon who can give you specifics regarding what's in your best interest.

Chin cleft: Rather than obesity / jowls, correct? A plastic surgeon can do this for you, but first ask about a dozen of your closest friends whether you should. At least several of them consider it distinctive for you. Ms. Lovato isn't complaining, and Ben Affleck and the dozens of other Hollywood male leads who sport chin clefts aren't seeking to alter their looks. Only you truly know what's right.

Exercise & nutrition: Focus on regular exercise & good nutrition. Enough sleep helps, too. Double chins can sometimes "melt away" as your health & weight improve. However, if double chin or loose skin remains after regaining "normal" weight, then it's time to go see your plastic surgeon.
