Does Kybella define jawline? Also, does it help if I continue to use ice pack and chin wrap after the injections?

Even tough the the injections are not along the jawline patients do get an improvement in their jawline.
Kybella specifically targets submental fat- does not define lateral jawline
Kybella only targets your double chin fat.
Liposuction, truSculpt and other procedures like Ultherapy may be better suited to define your jawline. Seek a detailed consultation with a BC plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic medicine and member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) for the best advice and recommendations on what will fit your needs. A chin wrap should not be necessary after Kybella treatment but may be used if the support provides you with comfort. Hope this help and best of luck with your results!

thanks for the question. You are getting some mixed reviews on here I see. I agree that Kybella is currently only FDA approved for the submental area. We stay away from the jawline to make sure we don't injury a very important nerve that lives there. However, as Kybella works and starts melting fat and contracting skin under the chin, I think it definitely tightens up the rest of the jaw line in the process. It is not dramatic in everyone, but it is a rather nice side bonus. I have discussed this with other Injectors who also agree with this pleasant side effect.

Using an ice pack and chin wrap afterwards can be comforting but should be done carefully to avoid ice burns to your skin. Discuss this with your plastic surgeon to make sure you are using a cool pack appropriately and safely.
I hope that this helps!
