Kybella® injections are a relatively new procedure compared to plastic surgery procedures, which have been around for many years. This FDA-approved injectable is used for the treatment of submental fullness, better known as a “double chin.” While liposuction plastic surgeries can also help with this issue, our team at The Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery in Seattle, WA, may find that some patients are better candidates for Kybella® injections than others.
What Are the Advantages of Kybella® Injections?
Unlike plastic surgery, Kybella® can be done quickly and without any downtime. It is also much less invasive than traditional plastic surgery methods and requires minimal recovery time. Patients see results after just one or two treatments, and there is little risk of scarring or other complications associated with the procedure.
The primary benefit of Kybella® over traditional plastic surgery is that it can target specific areas without affecting the surrounding tissues, making it an ideal choice for those who want to target double chin fat but do not want to affect their overall facial structure. Additionally, unlike liposuction and facelifts, Kybella® does not require any type of general anesthesia, which can be risky for some patients.
Depending on your individual needs and the number of treatments required, costs can range greatly. Kybella® is overall cheaper, though plastic surgery can cost thousands. It is essential to discuss all options with your doctor before making a decision about treatment.
