Am I a Candidate for Kybella?
Kybella is used to help decrease the appearance of fat that hangs below the chin, sometimes called a double-chin. If you have submental fat or a "double chin" that you want to get dissolved then you are a candidate for Kybella. A typical treatment schedule will include 4-6 visits, depending on how much chin contouring is needed and each visit is about 20 minutes long.

Kybella vs Coolmini vs Liposuction
There are multiple factors that go into answering this question...
If there is a lot of fat, liposuction is your best bet. This can be done in-office under local anesthesia.
If surgery is not something you are comfortable with, Coolsculpting would be your best bet financially... as long as the Coolsculpting applicator fits and you are okay with more time to see full results (than liposuction). If your jaw is too small or the amount of fat too little, the CoolMini may not fit.
Lastly, if you have a small amount of fat and the CoolMini applicator doesn't fit your face, I would go with Kybella. There is a significant recovery period with Kybella and the product is not cheap. That is why I reserve it for people with a small amount of submental fat.
All three will give you some skin tightening.

Choosing Kybella for Chin Fat Treatments
Kybella is a cytolytic drug, which when injected into tissue physically destroys the cell membrane. When properly injected into submental fat, Kybella destroys fat cells getting rid of unwanted double chin fat.
We suggest 2 or 3 treatments scheduled 4-6 weeks apart . Our patients have seen noticable improvements at every treatment!

Kybella vs. Laserlipo
Most physicians are charging per treatment which generally includes up to 2 vials. Each patient differs, but generally most patients need 2-4 treatments spaced anywhere between 6-8 weeks apart. Once you are evaluated, your physician can give a more accurate assessment of your treatment needs. Lipo Vs. #Kybella is a very difficult question to answer. It truly depends on your preference. Both reduce the amount of localized fat but one requires surgery and more downtime, and costs much more, but gives you the final result with one treatment, and the other requires injections and often at least two sessions for optImal results.
Kybella is good for certain candidates with submental fat under the chin
Good candidates for Kybella have submental fat under the chin that they would like to get rid of non-invasively. To determine if you are a candidate, an in-person consultation is required in which the doctor can assess your situation and talk to you about your goals. Whether you choose Kybella or chin liposuction just depends on your personal preferences and the results of your consultation; both treatment options can be very effective for contouring the chin. Liposuction can get you results in a single session, but you will need to spend a couple days recovering as well as wear a compression garment for some time. $1500 sounds about right for the cost of a single Kybella session.
Neck Liposuction Vs. Kybella

1. Can be done in office setting.
2. One treatment
3. Good medical history

There is another treatment that you have not consider. Smart Lipo on the neck (PrecisionTX). This treatment brings all the benefits of the Neck liposuction with the added benefit of less bruising and skin tightening if needed.
Cost of Kybella is per treatment and depends on how many vials are needed to complete the treatment that day.
Consult with a board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon that can show you all the benefits that you could gain from different options.
Hope this helps.
