Honest opinion of Kybella injections?

Dear Doctors,

What is your honest opinion of Kybella injections for correcting a run of the mill chin waddle vs. an old-fashioned surgical chin implant? Can these injections really achieve the same results as surgery?

Thank you–


Kybella does work, but it is not as effective as liposuction and definitely not get the same results as surgical intervention.

It really does not compare to a chin implant which solely makes the bony part of the chin more prominent but does not affect the “waddle,” which is below the jaw line.

Ideal candidates for Kybella would have only modest excess fat under the neck with good tone to the skin, meaning it feels fairly thick and firm.

Hope this helps.

Dr. P
