Kybella vs. Neck LIft
You are the perfect candidate for Kybella. Keep in mind that you will need at least 2 treatments and possibly a third treatment to correct the degree of laxity you have.
Kybella treatment for double chin
Excess fat below the chin, although referred to as a double chin, can be the result of a combination of genetics, aging, and weight gain. Based on your photos, you would be a great candidate for treatment with Kybella. I recommend you see an experienced Kybella injector for an in-person evaluation.

Double chin: kybella vs. neck lift
This a good question that many people ask; The fat melting drug called Kybella only treats or addresses fat that is located under the skin (pre-platysmal fat). Many men have another layer of fat that lies beneath the muscle (post-platysmal fat). In order to remove this second layer of fat and provide a better result requires a neck lift. With this very minimally invasive surgery, the first layer of fat can be removed with liposuction and the second layer can be removed with a platysmalpasty. Your cosmetic surgeon will need to perform a through exam of your neck to determine which or both layers of fat are creating the double chin.
Kybella and ultherapy
based on your pictures, I'd say you may benefit from both kybella and ultherapy. The kybella would help destroy the fat cells and then to give definition to your jaw line, I would consider a lower face ultherapy treatment. It doesn't work over night. But over the course of six months you may get the definition you are looking for. Then add the kybella and you should get a very nice contoured look!

Hello! Thank you for your question and for sharing your photos. The results that Kybella can create depend a lot on the individual anatomy and skin quality. Generally speaking, patients who are relatively young, and have good skin quality (as in - the main problem is fat under the chin, not sagging skin) regularly get results that are every bit as good as liposuction or neck lifting. If the main problem is sagging skin, however, Kybella will not do as good of a job. Based on your pictures you appear to be a perfect candidate! Please be aware that you will need 2-3 treatments spaced 2 months apart to see your full results. On a personal note - I have had Kybella and I love it! I hope this helps and good luck!
