Kybella vs. Chin Liposuction: Running Neck and Neck

Is Kybella Better Than Chin Liposuction? Kybella is the new FDA approved product for injection that melts the fat in your neck to remove the dreaded double chin.  Studies performed by the company were very promising and we are seeing some nice improvements in our patients as well.  The question that arises however, is whether or not Kybella will replace chin liposuction as the mainstay of treatment to create an elegant look in patients who are not ready for a neck lift.
