Accumulation of excess fat tissue in the submental area can cause the appearance of double chin. This can make the chin poorly defined and adversely impact the overall facial aesthetics. Until now only liposuction cosmetic surgery was a viable solution to this condition. However, the introduction of Kybella non-surgical double chin reduction treatment has introduced a new alternative.

Starting Out Right

During the initial consultation for Kybella double chin reduction, the plastic surgeon will discuss various aspects of the procedure, including its estimated monetary amount so you know what your financial responsibility will probably be. The first goal is to help the patient make an informed and rational decision. Dr. Bryson Richards is a well-known plastic surgeon providing Kybella and other surgical and non-surgical aesthetic treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities.

Cost Comparison with Liposuction

Many new patients seek to compare the dollar figures of Kybella injectable chin reduction treatment with those of liposuction plastic surgery. While the price of the two procedures will vary case by case, but in general, the overall impact on your checking account of Kybella will be relatively lower than that of liposuction surgery.

Liposuction may involve general anesthesia, which will add about $400 to $600 extra to the costs of the procedure. If laser technique is combined with traditional surgery, the sticker price of laser treatment may be added. Liposuction procedure may be performed at an accredited ambulatory center, hospital or in-office surgical suite, which is another key dollar amount component.

These overhead monetary amounts are typically avoided in a non-surgical injectable procedure such as Kybella. Additional financial factors such as prescription drugs, surgical garment, medical tests, and post-op visits to the office of the cosmetic surgeon may also be avoided in case of Kybella treatment.

Liposuction is likely to involve a considerable amount of downtime, and the patient should account for the loss of work days involved. On the other hand, in case of Kybella injections, the downtime will be minimal. Dr. Richards receives patients from in and around Las Vegas, NV for Kybella and other aesthetic procedures.

Average Stipulated Price of Kybella

The price of Kybella is largely comparable to various other FDA approved injectable procedures such as dermal fillers and neuro-modulators like Botox and Dysport. The treatment provider will create a detailed treatment plan after taking into account factors such as the patient’s unique neck and facial anatomy, overall body weight and appearance, and their personal aesthetic needs and aspirations.

The treatment plan will involve multiple treatment sessions, usually ranging from two to four sessions. In more severe cases, up to six treatment sessions may be planned. The first treatment will typically require a higher number of Kybella vials, while the number of vials may reduce progressively with each treatment.

The overall impact of Kybella on your bank account will be determined in accordance with all these factors. On average, a single Kybella treatment session may cost around $800. In such case, if the patient undergoes a total of three treatment sessions over three months, the overall dollar figure of procedure would come to about $2,400. Patients should also explore various financing options to make the payments in convenient monthly installments at low and appealing interest rates.

The first goal of Dr. Richards is to ensure that his patients make an informed decision after taking all aspects into account, including affordability.

On average, the all-inclusive impact on your checking account for breast augmentation plastic surgery may range from $8,000 to $14,000, depending on various factors.

Cost Factors

Breast augmentation procedure is fairly customizable, and dollar figure can differ from one patient to another. The geographic location where the cosmetic surgeon operates will make a difference to the overall cost. The price tag in major urban centers and coastal states will usually be higher than smaller, interior regions in the country. For instance, the dollar amount of breast augmentation in Las Vegas, NV and nearby locations may not be the same as the cost in, say, New Jersey.

The surgeon’s fee will usually vary according to their education, experience, and reputation in the field of breast augmentation surgery. Whether the procedure is performed at the surgeon’s own surgical suite, or at an accredited ambulatory center or hospital, will also impact the overall costs. If breast augmentation is performed in conjunction with breast lift or another procedure, the costs will be different. The financial factors of breast implants will vary according to the quality and type.

Price Tag for Implants

The monetary setback for saline, silicone gel, and cohesive silicone implants can vary significantly, impacting the overall costs of surgery. Saline implants contain a salt water solution in the core. The average cost of saline implants will be in the range of $1,000 to $1,200 per pair. Silicone implants, which include a silicone gel core, may set you back by about $2,000 to $2,200 per pair.

New and advanced qualities of highly cohesive silicone implants may cost about $3,000 to $3,500 per pair. Commonly known as ‘gummy bear implants’, these highly cohesive silicone implants are become increasingly popular despite their relatively higher costs.

Insurance and Finance

The financial sacrifice of breast augmentation surgery or breast implants will usually not be covered by insurance, except in some special cases of breast reconstruction. Most patients are eligible for financing options such as professional medical care financing companies that offer convenient monthly installments at rates of interest that are attractive.

Other financing options that should be explored well before the procedure is set to begin include credit card extended payments, loans from family or friends, bank loans, and even crowd funding.
