Skin Tightening Treatments + KYBELLA = Jowls + Double Chin Treatments!
Kybella is for submental fat, not jowl fat; consider other options
For jowls, you may want to consider
-fillers in the cheeks to lift
-sculptra in the submental area and mandibular jaw to balance
-ultherapy to tighten
-profound to tighten.
Kybella is not for jowls
Kybella is a great treatment for permanent destruction os fat under the chin area, it can cause skin tightening secondary to the inflammation and healing associated with fat cells being eliminated in your body, but it will unlikely affect your jowls.
You have an important nerve responsible for your lower lip movement, so Kybella will affect it and hence will give you a crooked smile.
Best and gold standard skin tightening option is Ultherapy for lower face and neck. This may or may not need to be combined with fractional laser resurfacing to give you optimal results. Even surgery may be your best option. Hence, please seek an expert consultation for the most appropriate treatment for your self. Best, Dr.Avaliani

Kybella-Belkyra for Jowl Fat
Belkyra is not indicated for the treatment of jowl fat. There is a nerve along the jawline that if injured by a Belkyra injection can cause numbness. See Video
Kybella and jowls
Kybella is a fabulous injection for treating submental fat but special care has to be used in treating the jowls. There is a nerve in the jowls that cannot be treated. That is why I often combine Kybella for the fat area under the chin with Thermage for tightening the jowls. I find that this combination approach usually delivers the best cosmetic results.

Kybella: treating jowls
Kybella should not be used for jowl fat
However, Ultherapy is an effective treatment for lifting and tightening the skin, and can smooth jowls and define the jawline in this area of the face.
All the best,
Kybella for the jowls
You may be candidate for Kybella injectables as Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness due to submental fat. Many patients and physicians may complain at the high cost of Kybella, but the fact of the matter is that you want the most effective remedy to your cosmetic concerns. You should consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to receive the highest-quality knowledge, treatment, care and skills as you consider which treatment to utilize to remedy your jowl with fat.
