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.

Best of luck!
Thank you for your question and photo. Based on your photo, depending on your overall goal I feel as though you would be a good candidate for KYBELLA treatment. KYBELLA is the newest FDA approved injection that reduces fat in the troublesome area below the chin. Known as the "double chin," KYBELLA eliminates fat cells in the neck and requires little downtime after each treatment session. The down time can be about 2 weeks of swelling and mild soreness and possible brusing. We recommend about 2-3 treatments seperated about 6 weeks apart. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for further information and to see if you are a candidate for the procedure. Good luck!
Kybella for Under Chin Laxity
While Kybella is intended to "melt" some of the fat underneath the chin, there is also some component of skin tightening that goes along with it. The results are not as significant as a facelift or neck lift, but improvement can be achieved.
To be sure what is best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have Kybella treatment.
I hope this helps.
Kybella for Submental Fat under the neck
Kybella is an excellent product for treating submental fat. However, I can't tell from the photo and in person consultation is needed to evaluate. You may be a better candidate for the Cool-Mini by Zeltique. If you just have skin laxity then I prefer Thermage for skin tightening since it has wonderful results. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of cosmetic experience for the best results. Best, Dr. Green
