Kybella vs. CoolSculpting for under the Chin

 
Hi and thank you for your question! The extra fat under the chin can be treated nonsurgically with Kybella, CoolSculpting or SculpSure. The best treatment approach for each patient can only be determined based on an individual consultation with examination of the face, but in general, Kybella might have an edge as it also provides some skin tightening effect which might be more pronounced compared with two other options. On the other hand, Kybella also requires a greater level of experience. Again, a detailed consultation with an experienced physician is highly recommended. I hope it helps and good luck!
