Cost is a primary factor when determining how to sculpt your jawline and eliminate your double chin. However, it’s far from your only deciding factor. Let’s dive into the cost of Kybella versus chin liposuction. Also, a few other factors that may influence your decision.

How Much Does Kybella Cost in McKinney, Texas?

Rejuvenate offers Kybella injections as one of many ways to contour your jawline. Unlike chin liposuction, more than 1 session is required. Most patients require between 4 and 6 sessions spaced out 2 to 4 weeks. While multiple sessions are required, the downtime and time off work is significantly less than having cosmetic surgery.

At approximately 20 minutes per session, you can come in on Saturday or on your lunch break.

Our current rates are:

  • $2,400* for one session
  • $4,500* for 2 sessions
  • $6,500* for 3 sessions

So, if you purchase 2 packages for 3 sessions, the total cost is $13,000. However, there are other medical and financial considerations that we discuss below.

How Much Does Chin Liposuction Cost?

To remove fat deposits underneath the chin via liposuction, the nationwide average cost is approximately $3,274. You can find local plastic surgeons who charge significantly more and significantly less.

At first glance, liposuction is less expensive, but you must also factor in downtime. Most patients need to take between 7 and 10 days off work for recovery. So, you’ll be giving up a good chunk (if not all) of your vacation time.

You’ll need to wear a compression sleeve for at least the first week and will likely be prescribed painkillers and anti-inflammatories. You’ll also need to avoid exercise and strenuous activity for an average of 3 to 4 weeks.

When you add these factors up, the cost in terms of both time and money may be more than the cost of Kybella.

What Are the Risks of Kybella?

Kybella is FDA-approved to target the subcutaneous fat underneath your chin. It’s considered generally safe and effective, has no downtime, and requires minimal changes to your daily routine. You’ll need to pause workouts and strenuous activity for 48 hours.

The most common side effects are redness, mild pain, bruising, and swelling. These symptoms peak 24 to 72 hours post-injection. Swelling and sensitivity can last 2 to 3 weeks.

Serious side effects are rare but can occur. Contact us immediately or seek emergency medical care if you experience:

  • Excessive bruising
  • Hair loss
  • Ulcers
  • Facial muscle weakness
  • An uneven smile
  • Changes to your facial appearance
  • Drainage and/or open sores
  • Numbness that lasts more than 3 days
  • Severe pain or symptoms of any kind

What Are the Side Effects of Liposuction?

Surgery always comes with risks. Although less invasive than most, liposuction is still surgery. Cleaveland Clinic shares the top risks, including:

  • Incision infection
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Bleeding or blood clots
  • Allergic reaction to anesthesia
  • Blood vessel, muscle, or organ damage
  • Hematoma/blood pocket
  • Numbness or nerve damage
  • Extended pain and swelling
  • Heart and lung complications

Does Kybella Deliver Better Results Than Liposuction?

The results are typically comparable. However, Kybella gradually improves over the next several months. Once the initial swelling and recovery time have past, liposuction delivers immediate results.

Are There Other Non-Surgical Double Chin Treatments?

Yes! Now that you understand the cost of Kybella and liposuction, you might be curious about other non-surgical options. There are a few, but Morpheus8 tops the list. Morpheus8 is an FDA-approved, multi-modality treatment that combines radiofrequency and microneedling. Powerful on their own, these treatments deliver superior results when combined.

In addition to addressing your chin fat, Morpheus8 can be used on the neck, face, and other areas of the body. The treatment stimulates collagen and blasts fat for body contouring, firming, tightening, and skin resurfacing.

Our current rates are:

  • $399* per session
