A Closer Look at Kybella for the Double Chin

Kybella® is an incredible injectable approach to reducing the appearance of the double chin. Cleared by the FDA in 2015 for use in addressing unwanted submental fullness, Kybella provides fast and easy treatments without much in the way of downtime. Now you can achieve surgical-level results without having to miss out on any of the fun this holiday season.

Is It Better than Surgery?

If you think that the only way to get rid of an unattractive double chin is to have a surgical procedure, then think again! Minimally invasive injections with Kybella provide a safe and effective alternative to more intrusive treatments like liposuction and surgery. That not only means you won’t have to deal with the pains of preparing for or enduring a long procedure with incisions and anesthesia, there’s also little to no downtime following treatment. Kybella sessions typically take about a half hour and most of our patients feel comfortable going on with their day afterward.

What Exactly Is Kybella?

So what makes Kybella such a powerful weapon against the appearance of the double chin? Its secret lies in a synthetic version of a fat-busting acid that’s already produced by the body to aid in the breakdown of fatty cells known as deoxycholic acid. This amazing acid works to absorb the treated cells, leaving the surrounding tissues in tact and unharmed. This makes for an extremely safe approach to contouring the chin area, as side effects are generally mild and fast to fade.

What Happens to the Fat?

Unlike a procedure such as liposuction where the fat is physically removed from the area through a small tube, or cannula, Kybella lets your body’s own cleansing abilities do the work instead. Once Dr. Will has targeted the fat with precise injections, the natural elimination process then safely clears out the cells. Because of this, it can take a little time before you start to notice your results. But while the outcome may be slower to take full effect than lipo, the fat treated with Kybella will be disposed of permanently.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

In order to get the most benefit from Kybella, Dr. Will may recommend a series of treatments spread out over several weeks or months. For the very best results, you may need up to six quick treatments, depending on the extent of correction desired. For those who just have a little extra to eradicate, as few as two procedures may be enough to sculpt and define the chin and jawline. On the other hand, some patients require the full regimen of treatments.
