Triple Threat for a Double Chin: 3 Treatment Options

The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery

Sometimes, an innovative new treatment comes along and incites serious excitement among our staff. This past year, when we added 2 new neck contouring treatments at our medical spa in Shreveport, that was exactly what happened.

Now, with these additions, our patients have 3 choices to refine their profile: SAFELipo®, KYBELLA®, and the CoolSculpting® CoolMini™. Which is right choice for you? Here’s a breakdown:

SAFELipo®: The Tried & True Option

The most traditional and effective option for neck contouring, SAFELipo® was originated at The Wall Center by our own Dr. Simeon Wall Jr. This non-thermal, comprehensive body contouring process can reduce fat and contour a variety of areas, including the neck. It is tried and true for amazing results, plus you’ll be able to enjoy your results after only 1 treatment.

Let’s break it down:

  • Surgical or nonsurgical? Surgical
  • Cost: Approximately $4,200
  • Number of treatments: 1 and done
  • Recovery: As with any surgical procedure, SAFELipo for the neck requires downtime. However, incisions will heal quickly, and most patients are back to their normal activities in a few days. Your fat will be gone immediately, but your results will not be completely visible until swelling and bruising subside within a few weeks.

KYBELLA: The Fat-Dissolving Injection

KYBELLA is the first FDA-approved injectable dedicated to reducing a double chin, aka submental fullness. Using an ingredient called deoxycholic acid that naturally occurs in our digestive systems to break down dietary fat, KYBELLA dissolves fat under the chin in a similar way.

Let’s break it down:

  • Surgical or nonsurgical? Nonsurgical
  • Cost: $1,200 per treatment
  • Number of treatments: 2 to 6 treatments, depending on your needs
  • Recovery: Following your treatment, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, and itchiness, but you can resume normal daily activities immediately. In the weeks and months following your treatment, you’ll notice gradual results. Once completely achieved, results can last indefinitely.

CoolMini: The Latest From CoolSculpting

You may already know that CoolSculpting is a completely noninvasive tool to help our Shreveport patients reduce fat all over the body. The CoolMini applicator is the latest addition to the system, designed specifically for small areas such as a double chin. Using controlled cooling, the CoolMini slims the neck by safely freezing the targeted area, without surgery or injections!

Let’s break it down:

  • Surgical or nonsurgical? Nonsurgical and noninvasive
  • Cost: $750 per treatment
  • Number of Treatments: 1 to 3 treatments, depending on response
  • Recovery: If you don’t have time for recovery, you’ll want to consider our newest nonsurgical alternative. CoolMini treatments require no downtime, and results are achieved gradually as the body’s natural metabolic processes remove damaged fat cells.

If you struggle with the dreaded double chin (it’s more common than you think), you know how exciting it is to finally have nonsurgical options. That being said, SAFELipo may provide you with the best, longest-lasting results. Regardless, let’s talk about your options together! We’ll help you decide which is best for your budget, lifestyle, and aesthetic goals.
