Kybella Vs. Neck Lift: The Ultimate Face Off

Kybella™ vs Necklift New Haven & Guilford CTWhen it comes to aging there is one thing everyone can agree upon; the double chin thing has got to go. However, as one of the most common side-effects of aging, your body starts to store fat in the most obnoxious places like your chin and your stomach. Luckily, there are two great options that can help you get rid of that nasty, unwanted neck fat: Kybella or a neck lift. So, what are these two procedures and how to they vary? Read on to learn more.

What’s the Diff?

The first thing to know about Kybella and a neck lift is that their main goal is to get rid of loose skin and fat around the neckline— leaving you without that dreaded turkey wattle. However, the next thing to be aware of is the unique differences— the most obvious difference being that Kybella is an injection and neck lift is a surgical procedure.


Kybella is a non-invasive injection that is used to target the stubborn fat under your skin. Comprised of an all-natural substance called deoxycholic acid, Kybella will work to destroy the fat under your skin after about a total of six weeks. However, the results from Kybella will easily last you several years.

Neck Lift

During a neck lift, excess fat from under the chin will be suctioned out with liposuction. Additionally, the muscles and skin will be tightened to give you a more taut looking physique that will make you no longer reminisce about life in your twenties. Although a neck lift is a fairly invasive surgery, because it involves tightening the muscles and skin, patients see longer lasting results than with Kybella.

Depending on how severe the fat is under your chin, the results you want, and the time you have for the procedure, will help you and Dr. Gary J. Price land on the right decision for you.

Start a Workout Routine

Can you remember the last time you worked out? Do you have a hard time finding a workout plan that you can stick to? If you answered “yes” to either of those questions, you are not alone. Find the time, energy, and motivation to workout can feel impossible after a long day of work or taking care of a family. However, getting regular exercise is one of the best ways to “refresh” and take care of your body. Not only does regular exercise help you maintain a healthy weight but it also helps you take care of your heart, lungs, and blood sugar. To help you stick with a workout plan, try setting goals that are attainable. For instance, for the first week try to go to the gym once and then take the stairs while at work. Then, during your second week you can try going to the gym twice and take the stairs— the more you get into the habit of exercising, the easier it will be.

Start a New Healthy Diet

One of the best ways to hit “refresh” on your body this season is to eat a diet full of fresh fruits, veggies, and lean protein. Try cutting out excess fat and sugar from your diet and fill it with produce that is in a season. To find some inspiration on healthy recipes, look at Pinterest!

Double Up On Your Results, Not On Your Chin: Kybella

Kybella | new haven ctYou may like double the fun, double stuffed Oreos, double trouble, or even doubled vacation time off of work, but the last thing you want double of is your chin. If you have started to develop a double chin as you age, Dr. Gary J. Price has a few options— one in particular— that can help contour your profile and give you a smoother looking physique: Kybella. Read on to learn more.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-surgical, FDA approved treatment designed with one goal in mind: to help you get rid of your double chin. Lasting only about 15-20 minutes, your Kybella procedure will be so fast that you won’t have to take any time off of work. By injecting a solution filled with deoxycholic acid into the area beneath your chin, Kybella works to dissolve the fat cells in this area and leave you with a more pronounced profile. Once these fat cells are dissolved, you won’t have to worry about them reproducing again.

What Is Recovery Like?

There is no downtime involved with Kybella, but patients who do receive this treatment can expect some redness, inflammation, and bruising under and around their chin. However, after just a few days, these symptoms should subside.

What Are Results Like?

Depending on how severe the area being targeted under your chin is, you will likely have to undergo several sessions. For instance, the average patient has to get about six treatments to dissolve the fat under their chin and give them optimal results. However, during your initial consultation with Dr. Price, he will tell you about how many treatment sessions he feels are necessary. Once the fat under your chin is dissolved, the cells won’t re-emerge on their own which means that as long as you maintain a healthy diet and get frequent exercise, your results should last.

With Kybella, you can get rid of your double chin in virtually no time. If you would like to learn more about this treatment or if you would like to schedule a consultation appointment, contact Dr. Gary J. Price today!
