Kybella or chin liposuction? (photos)

Cool-mini versus Kybella
Cool-mini and Kybella would both work very well for our submental fat. Liposuction is invasive and I would want to avoid a surgical procedure if possible. Best, Dr. Green
Submental Liposuction more appropriate
This question comes up frequently in my practice. I typically break it down as follows:Kybella is great to dissolve the fat and improve the contour in the submental region. It takes 2-3 treatments for maximal results so it is more of a marathon mindset, not a sprint. Liposuction is better for someone with fat that needs to be removed throughout the neck and is not willing to wait the 3 months to get the result they want. From your photos, depending on what your expectations are, you might be a better candidate for submental liposuction because it can contour your jawline as well.

Based on your limited pictures, it is difficult to assess your neck and decide on the best technique for you. If you desire more of a significant contouring of your entire neck then submental liposuction would be better. For a more limited under the chin fullness correction, kybella would be fine. I would consult with a local facial plastic surgeon.

Treatment for my double chin?
Hello lexishay,Thank you so much for you question and photos. From the photos it appears you are a good candidate for either Kybella or Chin Liposuction. Kybella is an excellent treatment for permanent fat reduction in the area below the chin (submental fat). To obtain the best results the typical person will require 2-4 treatments to achieve the desired results. These would be done approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Swelling and tenderness in the treated area will be expected after each treatment and can last for a week or so. Liposuction on the other hand can afford you the opportunity to treat a slightly broader area than will Kybella and may be more what you appear to be looking for. To truly assess what is best for you, cost considerations, recovery time etc. an in person consultation with a plastic surgeon or other professional well versed and who performs both procedures will give you the best information by which you can move forward. You have plenty of time before your wedding for either of these. Wishing you well.
