My double chin had bothered me ever since I was a teenager but I didn’t know I could do anything about it without surgery. Kybella gave me the confidence I didn’t know I had.
Kybella is the brand name of injectable deoxycholic acid that has been approved to destroy fat cells underneath the chin area. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally-occurring bile acid produced by the body that dissolves fat cells that are then naturally eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system.
This treatment is approved for the fat cells under the chin.
For the right patient, Kybella offers a non-surgical solution for one of the most common aesthetic complaints we see. Excess fat under the chin that is not related to weight gain is often hereditary and won’t budge despite diet changes or exercise. Kybella gives patients bothered by this area a new opportunity to feel more confident and happy with their profile.
All patients considering treatment for the double chin should first schedule a consultation at our office so we can discuss the best solutions for your unique skin needs and medical/aesthetic profile. Kybella is not a weight loss treatment and works best on ‘pinchable’ areas of fat that are isolated from the surrounding area. Contact our office to learn more.
While this can vary patient-to-patient, some swelling, bruising and tenderness is possible 48 hours to one-week post-treatment.
