This is a common question.
Firstly, it is always a good idea to have a lifestyle of a healthy diet and frequent exercise. this becomes more important as we age and allows us to recover faster from those periods in life where your wight may rapidly change - pregnancy.
If you do follow a healthy lifestyle and still have a double chin or other areas of focal excess weight or loose skin - unfortunately the only remedy for targeted weight loss is surgery.
these surgeries would be considered cosmetic in nature and not covered by any government health plan.
I hope that clarifies any doubts.
