If your jawline and neck are showing signs of aging or weight gain, or if you are simply not happy with the way they look, there are a couple treatment options you might consider. Below is a comparison of Kybella and liposuction. Keep in mind that you should always consult a physician when choosing a cosmetic procedure.
Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment for double chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps with the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat. Once destroyed, the cells under the chin can no longer store fat. A full Kybella treatment typically consists of six sessions that are one month apart.
Liposuction of the neck and jowls is a relatively simple aesthetic procedure that removes excess fat from the neck and jawline with minimal risk, and is one of the most common liposuction procedures performed. Results are typically long-lasting. Liposuction can provide dramatic improvement alone, and it can also be combined with other treatments to help you achieve your preferred appearance.
