The appearance of double chin due to excess fat tissue below the chin can be frustrating for many people. Submental fat can be hard to reduce, and can make the lower face look poorly defined. The FDA approved Kybella injectable treatment is a proven non-surgical alternative to liposuction surgery for chin fat reduction.
During the initial consultation, the Kybella treatment provider will discuss all aspects of the procedure, including its estimated costs.
The patient can make an informed decision after comparing the costs and potential benefits of Kybella with other surgical and non-surgical treatment options. Board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. V provides Kybella injections to patients in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and surrounding locations.
Cost Comparison with Liposuction
The patient may like to know how the cost of Kybella injectable procedure compares with that of liposuction surgery. While the costs of both procedures can vary from one patient to another depending on the extent of treatment required, the dollar figure of liposuction surgery will usually be higher.
Liposuction will normally involve the dollar amount of general anesthesia or IV sedation, which can be avoided with Kybella injectable treatment. Technologies such as laser, RF or ultrasound may be combined with liposuction, which will increase its costs. Operating room costs are additional to liposuction surgery, but Kybella injections can be performed as an in-office procedure.
During the recovery phase, liposuction may involve financial considerations such as medical tests, prescription drugs, surgical garment, and post-op visits to the surgeon’s office. Kybella will usually have no expenses during recovery. The downtime involved in liposuction will be significantly higher than in the case of Kybella injections, which can have cost implications for some working patients.
Dr. V receives patients from Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and nearby areas for Kybella injections for chin fat reduction.
Factors Impacting the Price
The cost of Kybella injections can slightly differ between two practices or even between two patients at the same practice. Where the practice is located can make an important difference to the costs. Average dollar amounts of living in smaller towns and interiors are usually lower than the costs in prime cities and major urban centers. This will influence the costs of most types of goods and services, including cosmetic procedures such as Kybella.
The degree of treatment required by each patient may vary according to their facial and neck anatomy and their personal cosmetic goals. The treatment provider may charge differently for each patient according to their requirement of Kybella injections. In some cases, Kybella may be performed in conjunction with other procedures, and the provider may offer a discounted package price.
Most people will need to undergo two to four sessions of Kybella injections, with a maximum of six sessions for exceptionally severe cases. The monetary amount of Kybella will be determined according to the number injection vials used during each session, and the total number of sessions required for a patient.
