Is Kybella® the Best Treatment for a Double Chin?
Kybella® is the first FDA-approved non-surgical injection product that targets submental fullness, known more commonly as a double chin. The product contains special enzymes that destroy fat cells to produce a gradual reduction in fat. Dr. Palmer has worked with many patients who prefer the benefits of chin and neck liposuction compared to the results that may be achieved with Kybella®. Understanding the advantages of chin and neck liposuction helps you make the right choice for your aesthetic goals.

What Are the Benefits of Chin and Neck Liposuction vs. Kybella®?
Chin and neck liposuction gives patients the immediate and consistent results they desire. With Kybella®, a person may experience some inconsistent reduction in the fat cells, leading to an uneven or slightly lumpy appearance. Even with the recovery period, chin and neck liposuction produces faster results compared to the 16-week minimum of Kybella® treatments. Additionally, chin and neck liposuction allows Dr. Palmer to remove fat that may not be reduced with Kybella® due to the location or characteristics of the fat cells.
Is Chin and Neck Liposuction Right for Me?
If you have a double chin or extra fat on your neck, speak with Dr. Palmer about how chin and neck liposuction can restore the contours of the neck and under-chin area.
How is Chin and Neck Liposuction Performed?
Chin and neck liposuction is performed by making very small incisions in the skin through which a flexible tube is inserted. The tube is used to loosen the fat and remove it via suction. The incisions are so small that sutures are typically not needed and scars are very difficult to see.
What is Chin and Neck Liposuction Recovery Like?
Recovery from chin neck liposuction takes approximately one to two days. You may have some swelling, tenderness, and discomfort.
