In my opinion, this is a perfect opportunity to use Kybella.

Kybella and Good Candidate NYC
It is always wise to disclose any surgical or medical advise to your current physician. It does not sound like the liposuction should be a contraindication for having Kybella injections. You should consult a trained dermatologist who is certified in Kybella injections for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
Thank you for your question. Since you
did not submit a photo I cannot tell how much submental fullness you have under
your chin. It’s always best to submit a photo consult for a better opinion,
which you can do on various doctors’ websites like ours. The liposuction you
had 8 years ago will not have an effect on whether you are a candidate or not,
but you must be truthful to your physician when they are assessing that area.
If you are interested in the procedure it’s always best to have in-person
consultation with a qualified physician so that they can fully review the
Discussing cosmetic treatment options
I always recommend to patients to be completely open and honest with your physician about treatments you're interested in, and to explain why you want to pursue them. Kybella is a great, relatively non-invasive treatment to improve the appearance of the chin/jawline, but it's not for everyone. For some people, other surgical or non-surgical treatments may be better options. In general, though, having had liposuction in the past does not disqualify you from getting Kybella.
The vast majority of cosmetic dermatologists will be happy to hear your reasoning and discuss which options would be best for you.
It's always in your best interest to let your medical provider know your complete medical history. Based on your description, you sound like an ideal candidate for Kybella.
Kybella after previous liposuction to the submental area
It is difficult to evaluate your situation with out pictures and a physical exam. If on exam you have fat in the safe area to inject then you should be able to have the procedure done with caution. seek a board certified plastic surgeon to do so.
Thank you for your question, donna theo. Enough time has passed between your liposuction for you to have the option to move forward with Kybella. You should not feel afraid to discuss anything with your doctor - it is very important that you meet with a board certified facial plastic surgeon and find that you and the surgeon have a rapport. I cannot stress how important it is to establish a very open, honest and comfortable patient-surgeon relationship before moving forward with any surgery.
In short, yes you are a candidate with Kybella, and pictures are always helpful for us on this site as well.
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately there is no picture. You should always be honest with your treating physician. If you in deed still have central neck fat below your skin, you are a candidate for Kybelle.
