Kybella vs. Liposuction: Which is Right For You?

Do you eat healthy and exercise regularly, but still struggle with excess fat around your face? Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta can help you with these stubborn areas. In most cases there are two methods that are often used to eliminate stubborn fat from your face, neck and, chin: Kybella and Liposuction. 

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injection that destroys fat cells beneath the chin. Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Multiple injections and several treatments are needed to destroy the cells.  The exact number will depend on the amount of fat present and your desired results.

Luckily, once the cells are destroyed, there will no longer be an accumulation of fat – meaning you won’t need further treatment.

What is Liposuction?

With facial liposuction/facial liposculpture, excess fat is removed from the face, cheek and chin. A tiny incision is made under the chin or around the ear lobe in which a suction device is inserted, removing the fat from the specified areas in a discreet manner.

Which Method is Right for You?

The treatment that is right for you will be dependent on what your goals are. If you don’t want to have surgery and only need to remove excess fat from a small area like your chin, then Kybella may be the best choice.

If you want to see faster results with fewer appointments, then liposuction could be the winner.
