Differences Between Kybella and a Neck Lift
While Kybella and neck lifts share a lot of attributes, at least in relation to what they set out to achieve, there are significant differences between the procedures.
Kybella uses injections, which can be considered less invasive than neck lift surgery. The most noticeable difference, however, is that the injection-based treatment kills fat cells through the naturally-occurring acid while neck lifts focus on redistribution. Therefore, when Kybella kills fat cells, they cannot resurface or tighten loose skin.
Neck lifts do offer great flexibility and control, including the prospect of mini neck lift procedures. While the side effects of bruising and swelling might last a few days longer, the change to the neck and chin area is seen almost right away. Financially, neck lifts tend to be more expensive.
