Kybella is great for the double chin but can't be used on the jowl area. For the jowls you should definitely consider Thermage which will tighten the neck and jowl area. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Can Kybella help with the jowl area? I don't have a double chin, but my jawline has lost its definition.

Kybella does a decent job with the submental fat pad. My issues with kybella are that it is expensive, has some downtime and requires multiple treatments.
It is not treatment for jowls or jawline definition. A facelift is really ideal for both of those. Directed liposculpting (liposuction) and possibly fat transfer can give people good results also and is worth researching.
Hope this helps.
Best of luck,

Kybella is only FDA approved for treating the under chin area. Without seeing you in person or a photo, impossible to say what exactly would help your jaw but a lot of my patients find that lifting the mid-face/cheek area with a filler such as Voluma can definitely improve the jawline. Schedule an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon to be assessed in person and discuss.
