About two thirds of people are bothered by the fat beneath their chin. You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin. Most of the time as you look back in your family tree, there will be a relative with the same “double chin”. And sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away. KYBELLA® may help. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Everyone’s chin profile is different, so treatment is individually tailored to achieve the look you desire. The number of treatment sessions will vary based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so re-treatment is not necessary to maintain the results once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Treatment with KYBELLA® takes about 30-45 minutes. First, numbing cream is applied to the skin. Multiple tiny injections are then done by our Board Certified Surgeon. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired results. Following the treatment, you will have moderate swelling, some numbness, and probably some bruising in the treatment area.
Schedule a consultation with our surgeon to see if KYBELLA® is right for you.
