In brief: Probably not

Excessive gum chewing may exacerbate underlying TMJ problems.
A proper, healthy diet will get you down to your ideal weight. If you are unhappy with your appearance after reaching your final weight, then consult with a facial plastics surgeon.

In brief: No

Chewing activates the muscles of mastication of which the largest is the masseater muscle.
Loose skin on the neck & chin can only be corrected with plastic surgery.

In brief: No

Chewing gum will not tighten up the tissues in your chin and neck the way other exercises will reduce fat, nor tone and strengthen the muscles in certain other parts of your body.
