The Double Chin Debate: Liposuction or Kybella?

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on Sep 16, 2021 12:00:00 AM

Exercise and a healthy diet can do wonders for the body, but sometimes certain areas of stubborn fat are hard to get rid of. One area, in particular, being the submental fat under the chin, often referred to as the “double-chin.” At Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa we offer two different procedures to help target the unwanted fat in this area to help you look and feel your best. These two procedures are Liposuction and Kybella.

Neck lipo vs kybella

Neck Liposuction

At Silk Touch, we use Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) for our neck liposuction procedure. This is done by using a cannula with a vibrating tip that is able to break down fat into smaller pieces, making it easier and more convenient to remove with suction. The key to our success is the use of a small cannula to facilitate sculpting and diminish the potential for tunneling and contour irregularities. In individuals who have laxity, we also do ThermiTight, which uses radio frequency energy to stimulate skin tightening and thickening. Neck lipo can be performed within a couple of hours and only requires a local anesthetic. Recovery time can take a few weeks, but patients may return to normal activities within a few days. Many patients see results almost immediately, though final results may take 3 to 6 months to be seen. 

Kybella

Kybella is the only FDA approved injectable to get rid of fat and improve the appearance of submental fullness. Since this treatment is non-surgical, there is minimal to no downtime. Kybella is a formulation of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. This substance helps break down and absorb dietary fat when synthesized. The treatment itself is relatively fast—between 15 to 20 minutes—but multiple treatments can be required. Slight swelling can last anywhere between 4 to 7 days after each Kybella injection.

Which Treatment is Right For You?

Both Neck Lipo and Kybella can be great options for individuals looking to treat that stubborn neck fat. When deciding which treatment is best for you, it comes down to personal preference and what the doctor suggests. We require all patients to schedule a complimentary consultation. This consultation allows us to decide what the best treatment plan is for you.

How To Tell If You Are A Kybella Candidate

Lately there has been a lot of buzz around this injectable treatment from the makers of Botox, Kybella. And it's easy to see why. It's an amazing treatment that gets some pretty wow worthy results for jawline contouring.

Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment that gets rid of under-the-chin fat permanently with out surgery! The treatment takes about 15 minutes and while there is some slight tenderness and swelling, the downtime is very minimal. We have been using Kybella in our practice for a few years now and we can't get enough of this product! Not only can you use Kybella under your chin and in your jawline - but you can also use it on other areas of the body such as bra fat and banana rolls. 

Are you a candidate for a Kybella double chin treatment? While we want to evaluate you in person first before we can say 100%... you can use this easy test to get a good idea!

Kybella Candidate Test:

1. Pinch the skin under your chin, then pinch the skin on your wrist - if it feels the same, then you a probably not a candidate.

3.Pinch the skin under your chin, then pinch the skin on your flanks (love handles). If it feels the same, then you are probably a candidate!
