Kybella vs Liposuction: Your best chin yet.

Plastic Surgeons & Medical Spa Serving Lexington, Frankfort, Georgetown, Nicholasville, and Nearby Central and Eastern Kentucky

Posted: November 1, 2016

Here at Plastic Surgeons of Lexington, we understand how important your chin can be.  A fatty double chin can create a round facial appearance and could significantly age your face. There are several different options out there to help you combat the double-chin and have your most defined jawline yet!

Plastic Surgeons of Lexington is proud to offer Kybella.  Kybella is an injectable that is administered in the soft tissue just below your chin. Not only does it correct fullness under the chin, but it is a safe and effective method that is performed in our office.  The perfect candidate for Kybella is someone with subtle fullness and good quality skin under the chin.  With that being said, not everyone is a candidate for Kybella.  In this instance, patients could consider liposuction.

Liposuction ensures proper fat removal from around the face. By doing so, you craft a more defined neck silhouette and add shape to your face.  By establishing a more defined chin and jawline you restore a better facial balance and stronger facial contours.  Because liposuction does take out excess fat, the ideal candidate for this procedure should be between ages 20-50 and still have skin elasticity.

If your skin is lacking in elasticity, there are still options.  When considering a cosmetic procedure, it is always best to consult your physician so they can help you determine what the best solution is for you.  Call (859) 276-3883 today to schedule a consultation.  A strong and defined jawline can be yours.
