I have round face with double chin. What is best for me - Kybella or Botox for jawline slimming? Very confused! (Photo)

Kybella is going to be the right choice for the pocket of fat under your chin. Price is going to depend on the amount of fat which determines how many vials you will need. It also takes between 2 and 4 treatments however, the results are permanent.
Botox and Kybella
Kybella would address the double chin in the submental region. Botox would help with the Masseter muscle in the cheek region to help slim and narrow the face.Typically I recommend about 15 units in each masseter and I would use two vials of Kybella to the submental region.
Kybell Botox Injections
Patients with enlarged mastoid muscles may benefit from Botox injections to flatten the angles of the jaw.
Please use this information when consulting in person with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Kybella v. Botox Cosmetic
Kybella is effective for reducing submental fullness, aka double chin. Botox will not help that particular problem.
To be sure what is best for you, see two or more experienced, licensed and board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.

Double Chin and Best Treatment Kybella or Cool-mini NYC
From your photo it appears that your main area of complaint is the fat under the chin. I would recommend either Kybella or the Cool-mini. Both treatments would work well for you. Botox would not really address the fat under the chin. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Kybella not Botox for double chin
It's sounds as though your major concern is the recent development of a double chin. From this picture it looks like the majority of the issue relates to what we call pre platysmal fat. It's impossible to give any direct medical advice without knowing your history and performing an exam of the area, but since I introduced Kybella to Oregon in June of 2015, after FDA approval, we have seen many patients get rid of or significantly reduce their double chin without surgery.
Botox can be used for many things on the face but is not helpful for reducing fat under your chin. It can be used along the jaw line to help give you a more "heart shaped" face and reduce some of the rounding.
Regarding dosing, it is impossible to predict that without seeing you but in general you would likely need 2 or 3 vials of Kybella for the double chin and this may need to be repeated one or two times.
Botox to the jawline is generally about 15 units per side to start and then the dose can be tailored later to your needs.
I hope this helps reduce some of the confusion you are having about the two treatment options. Best wishes.
