Sagging skin after Kybella
Kybella focuses on dissolving the fat but does not alter the skin itself. In some patient that have minimal sun damage/ exposure and good skin elasticity, the skin itself can tighten after a Kybella treatment. However, with aging, elasticity decreases and skin laxity increases. You can trial non surgical skin tightener options such as Ulthera but be open to the possibility of surgery for removal of excess skin.

Kybella is NOT an alternative to a neck lift
It is important to understand what Kybella is and isn't. Kybella is a great option for a young to middle aged patient with some submental fat. It can remove this fat and mildly tighten the skin. However, its goal is not to tighten skin exclusively. Kybella is not a substitute for necklifting or surgical tightening.
Who can receive Kybella treatment?
Kybella is possibly one of the safest treatments for fat reduction. Kybella is so safe, it can be utilized to eliminate fat cells on individuals regardless of age. One possible reason to negate your eligibility to undergo Kybella treatment is the presence or existence of a chronic medical ailment. This will be identified once you visit a board certified physician. Usually, he or she will do a complete assessment to check your current health standing and to see if there is nothing in you that will contraindicate the treatment.
Although anyone is allowed to undergo Kybella treatment, there are still no studies proving its safety for people below 18 years of age. In addition, some doctors may not opt to give you Kybella treatment if you are over 65 years old. One reason for this is because, Kybella may not give sufficient tissue and skin tightening thereby producing less satisfactory results. But then again, consult with your doctor to make sure of your eligibility to the treatment.
Kybella (Belkyra) for people over the age of 65
Age is not the determining factor in being a good candidate for the treatment. It is a question of skin laxity. If you have moderate to severe laxity of the skin under your chin Belkyra is not your best option for treatment. See video for more information
