Kybella for Improving Chin Contour
Kybella is a new FDA Approved drug for improving the contour of the chin and neck. It is a 15-20 minute series of customized injections based upon your needs. It can take 2-3 sessions. As Kybella destroys the fat cells, re-injection is not expected.
Liposuction with or without platysmaplasty is always an option. The great news is that you have both options!
Not a case for chin
Start off with liposuction of the neck for this somewhat complicated problem.

In order to get a more defined jawline, you need at least a short scar facelift and neck contouring plus a chin implant. Neck Contouring will involve removal of subcutaneous and submuscular fat, tightening of platysma muscle, and removal of excess skin. Shortscar facelift on the other hand involves removal of excess fat on the jaw area with tightening of he lower face. Finally, the chin implant will give more definition your your jawline and chin area.
Defined Jawline Needs a Combination of SmartLipo, Botox, and Venus Legacy
Start with liposuction
I would start with liposuction only.
You may be very pleased with the results from that only.
After that, you could consider a chin implant.
No need to do everything at the same time.
Best of luck,

Chin definition from liposuction vs. implant
Hi, I have added a link that might be helpful...
Hi VictoriaBianca. Thank you for sending photos-you look like a good candidate for VASER liposuction. I would liposuction along your jawline and chin to maximize your definition. The VASER modality provides some skin tightening and is an advantage for you. I can not overstress the importance of wearing a chin strap/garment to help your skin recoil and get the best shaping. An in-person consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon will help determine if your jaws and bite are in alignment-important to know before thinking about chin implants and other treatments that can give better chin contours. Good luck!
