Kybella injections or Chin Liposuction?

If you need to slim down your double chin, you can do so using non-invasive Kybella injections or chin liposuction. There are pros and cons to each mode of treatment. It’s advisable to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. The surgeon will conduct a detailed examination, and decide which option would give you the best long term result.

Kybella Injections
Kybella is a non-surgical treatment for sub mental fat, which is the fat below the chin, often referred to as a ‘double chin.’ Kybella is a derived version of deoxycholic acid, which the body uses to metabolize fat. A tiny needle is used to inject Kybella. No anesthesia is used with Kybella treatment.

Chin Liposuction
Chin liposuction is an operation in which a small cannula is used to excess fat under the chin, and also to sculpt the area. The incisions for the procedure are generally made either below the chin, or behind the ears.

Which is right for you?
If you are in good shape and near your ideal weight, with pockets of fat below the chin that are resistant to diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for Kybella. This treatment is more convenient and less costly, and is better suited to individuals with minimal skin laxity.

If the fat under your chin is located below the platysmal muscle in the neck, or you have a significant about of loose neck skin, chin liposuction may be the better option for you.

However, there are several other options to consider when making a choice, such as your health profile and aesthetic goals.

If you have pockets of chin fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, contact the experts at Laser Skin Care Center, Long Beach, CA. Call us today at (562) 997-1144 to schedule a consultation.
