Do You Think I Will Benefit from Kybella? (Photo)

Kybella is good for submental fat
Kybella is a great treatment option for people with submental fat under the chin and good skin tone, which you appear to have. An in-person consultation is necessary to make sure that you are a good candidate, however. I recommend visiting a board-certified dermatologist who is experienced in performing Kybella injections for an evaluation and to come up with an appropriate treatment plan.
Thank you for your question. From looking at your photographs it seems that you would be a good candidate for Kybella. It is a great alternative to liposuction to treat fat under the chin (submental fat). It is the only injection FDA approved for this area. I recommend having a consultation with an expert injector to determine the best treatment plan for you. Best of Luck!
Kybella Eliminates Double Chins Without Surgery
From the photos you provided, it seems that you would be an excellent candidate for Kybella, which is much less invasive than liposuction. Kybella uses deoxycholic acid to melt away submental chin fat. It is injected under the chin using a template. The entire procedure only takes about 5 minutes. You may need more than one treatment to get optimal results. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to find out how Kybella can help you eliminate your double chin for good.

During a Kybella treatment, the neck is first cleaned and numbed with topical lidocaine. A pattern is drawn on the neck and the product is injected into the fat pad - dissolving the fat. The body then absorbs the fat over several weeks. There is swelling, bruising, and some numbness in the area during this time. The injections are usually done once a month and it can take 2 to 6 treatments to reach full effect depending on the severity of the fat.
The cost is variable depending on the amount of fat to be treated but ranges from $1500 to $1900 per treatment. Looking at your photos I would imagine you would be at the lower end of this spectrum. Effective alternatives for submental fat removal include liposuction and direct excision.
A detailed examination will help delineate the best option. Consultation with a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery would be the next best step.
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.
All three will give you some skin tightening.

Kybella and Good Candidate
From your photos you appear to be an excellent candidate for Kybella. It appears that it would take two to three series of injections to dissolve your double chin. The new Cool-mini by Zeltique also is highly effective at reducing this submental fat permanently. Please consult a board certified physician who has a great deal of experience with Kybella for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
