It can be difficult to remove excess fatty deposits in the submental area with diet and exercise. This type of fat can make a person’s lower face appear poorly contoured giving the appearance of a double chin.
Liposuction surgery has been an effective procedure for the treatment of submental fat. However, patients seeking a nonsurgical way to address submental fat may consider the Kybella cosmetic dermatology procedure, which has received FDA approval for this purpose.
The patient should consider all factors to make a well-informed decision. Suncoast Skin Solutions, led by prudent board certified dermatologist Dr. Christopher Ewanowski, provides Kybella injections to patients in Tampa, Brandon, Lutz, Seminole, Riverview, Brooksville, Winter Haven, Daytona Beach, Largo, St. Petersburg, Ocala, The Villages Central Florida, Florida, and surrounding locations.
Cost Comparison with Liposuction Surgery
Patients may want to compare the costs of Kybella injectable medical spa treatment with liposuction plastic surgery. The procedure costs will vary on the extent of the treatment a patient requires. However, the dollar amount of Kybella injections will usually be significantly lower than that of liposuction surgery.
Liposuction typically involves the costs of general anesthesia or sedation. Kybella injectable treatment will avoid these costs as it can be performed using only a local anesthetic.
Furthermore, liposuction may include techniques such as ultrasound, radio frequency or laser, which will increase the total costs of the surgery. Liposuction will involve surgical facility costs while Kybella is an in-office treatment.
Liposuction also typically has additional costs such as surgical accessories, prescription meds, medical tests and follow-up consultations with the surgeon. But there are usually no recovery expenses following Kybella injections. The patient may require a significant recovery period after liposuction, which may translate into opportunity costs for working professionals.
The downtime after Kybella treatment is minimal, and the patient can receive this treatment as a weekend procedure. Busy moms and working people often prefer this kind of treatment over a surgery.
Kybella injectable procedure is similar to dermal fillers or injectable neuro-modulators such as Dysport or Botox. Treatment costs can differ between practices depending on the practice’s geographical location.
Smaller towns and interior cities typically experience lower average living costs in comparison to prime urban centers and metropolitan cities. This can affect the costs of goods and services, including cosmetic treatments such as Kybella.
The Kybella treatment provider will initially evaluate the unique facial and neck anatomy of the patient and understand their cosmetic goals to develop a customized treatment plan. They may also assess the patient’s overall health status, age, and body weight.
On the basis of these factors, the treatment provider will establish the extent of the treatment that the patient requires. The treatment sticker price will depend on the scope of the procedure.
