Address Your Double Chin with KYBELLA, a Permanent Treatment


Worried about your double chin? With KYBELLA, it is now easy to say goodbye to this top aesthetic concern of men and women. KYBELLA is an FDA-approved permanent fat-dissolving solution that can melt your submental fat with minimal pain and downtime. A doublechin is caused by various factors such as aging, weight gain or genetics. The first of its kind type of injectable treatment for adults, Kybella dissolves the fat cells under the chin. The treatment is non-invasive and can remarkably improve the overall contour of the neck and jaw line. No Surgery, No Hospital Stay.

Who Is the Right Candidate?
Kybella is the right treatment option if you are–
  • worried about submental fullness
  • looking for a non-surgical treatment
  • unable to get rid of chin fat with diet or exercise

How KYBELLA Works?
The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid that helps in the breakdown of fat. Before administering KYBELLA, the surgeon may apply ice/cold packs or topical and injectable local anesthesia to the treatment area or an over-the-counter pain reliever will be recommended. The in-office treatment session may take 15 to 20 minutes.

Most patients require between 2 to 4 treatments spread out by 1 month or so. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.After the treatment, ice or cold pack will be applied to the area for 10 to 15 minutes. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, providing permanent results. Most common side effects include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, and redness in the treatment area.

Similar to Botox or injectable fillers, this procedure requires no anesthesia and the patient experiences only minimal pain.

Choose an Expert Plastic Surgeon:
The safe and effective use of KYBELLA depends on the use of the correct number and locations for injections, proper needle placement, and administration techniques. If the injection is performed properly, then all other cells will be left healthy and intact, while the fat gathered at the bottom of your chin will quickly disappear. Make sure to schedule your consultation with a KYBELLA®-trained plastic surgeon. During consultation, tell your surgeon about the cosmetic treatments you have done on your face, neck or chin, any medical conditions you have in your neck area, or any bleeding problems. Also, let the surgeon know if you are taking a medicine that prevents blood clotting.
