A patient asked 2 months ago
I was considering Kybella at first but was told by several doctors that it’s not actually that effective. then i planned on getting regular submental liposuction, but the cost is higher than I expected. Now I am wondering if CoolSculpting is a good option. Is it more effective than Kybella, do you think? Is it less effective than regular liposuction? For context, I am 21 with good skin elasticity and I am not overweight, I just have a bit of excess fat under my chin that I want to eliminate.

Best Treatment for Double Chin

 

Hi and thank you for your question! The recommended treatment for double chin can vary from patient to patient and it really needs an in-person consultation (or at least pictures), but based on your description, you do appear to be a good candidate for Kybella as a non-surgical option. Specially with smaller amount of excessive far, Kybella allows us more precise treatment (since your doctor can carefully choose the exact sites of injections) as opposed to a treatment such as CoolSculpting which offers less precision. I hope it helps and good luck!
