Thank you for your question sreading1w. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. Kybella is an investment and different office offer various financing options such as Care Credit.

Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Every surgeon's office is different, but most offer some kind of payment plan like Care Credit. I would suggest that you find a board certified plastic surgeon in your area who has a lot of Kybella experience and then call the office to discuss financing.

Kybella and Payment Options

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Kybella is a great procedure to permanently get rid of your "double chin".  Each office is different so you have to contact each office directly about payment plans.  I often combine Kybella with Thermage for the best skin tightening results in the submental fat. Please consult an expert for the best cosmetic result.  Best, Dr. Green

Hi sreading1w,

You can use various credit systems to pay for cosmetic procedures.  You just need to check with the office you are considering to see which options they have for you.  Most offices use Carecredit, but this is not the only choice.

Hope that helps.

Payment Plans for Cosmetic Procedures

Cosmetic procedures, including Kybella injections, can be fairly expensive. Although most cosmetic practices, including mine, do not offer "in house" payment plans, there are plans, such as Care Credit, that you can use to pay for procedures.

With Care Credit, the practice signs up with the company, and then they offer you a payment plan suited to your needs. These are usually 6, 12, 18 months, or 2 year payment plans. The terms tend to be good. There is a percentage charged to the practice when a patient signs up for Care Credit. We do not pass this on to the patient - but some offices might. So be sure to ask.

In most practices that do cosmetic treatments have care credit or other financing options.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Thank you for your question. Many practices offer financing for procedures. I would discuss with the practice you are interested in going to what options they have. We offer Care Credit, and Alpheon in our practice.

0% Financing through Care Credit

Most offices will need full payment up front. You can always use a credit card or financing through a third party such as Care Credit that does offer 0% financing options.

Paying for #Kybella

Sreading1w, many cosmetic procedures, and Kybella is one of them, have a high upfront cost to the physician. It is not possible for the physician to provide financing directly to the patient, but most of us provide financing options through third-party vendors such as ALPHAEON and CareCredit. They pay the physician up front and then you pay them via a variety of schedules and reasonable interest rates. There is always your credit card, but often these monthly payments require a higher interest rate.

All the best!

Most offices will require full payment at the time of the procedure. Many will accept credit cards or you can apply for credit with third party financing companies like CareCredit which give you a credit card for cosmetic procedures.
