Submental fat is the fat between your chin and neck, which causes the appearance of a “double chin.” This can affect a broad range of adults because it’s not limited to people who are overweight: it can be caused by genetics and aging as well, and it can often be resistant to diet and exercise.
That’s where Kybella® comes in. Kybella® is identical to the deoxycholic acid that is produced in the body. Deoxycholic acid produced in the body helps the body absorb fats. Kybella® is a cytolytic drug, which when properly injected into submental fat, destroys fat cells. Kybella® received FDA approval in April of 2015, making it the first and only non-surgical procedure to eliminate sub-mental fat.
DOUBLE CHIN GOT YOU DOWN?
IS KYBELLA RIGHT FOR ME?
Extraneous submental fat can be frustrating. If you’re bothered by fullness under your chin, schedule a consult to discuss your options. Ideal candidates are 18 years and older, are not pregnant or breastfeeding, and have moderate to severe submental fat. Minimally invasive and quick, Kybella is an excellent option for those looking to treat their double chin without surgery. We can also use Kybella to treat stubborn fat in the abdomen and around the bra line.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM KYBELLA?
Dr. Sanders works with you to design a customized treatment plan to improve the profile of your neck and chin. A numbing agent may be used to make the procedure more comfortable (most patients report only mild discomfort). Dr Sanders makes multiple injections with a small, fine needle into the fatty tissue under the chin. If needles aren’t your thing don’t worry: the entire procedure only lasts a few minutes. You may experience warmth and swelling following your treatment, but it will fade.
WHEN WILL I NOTICE MY RESULTS?
Everyone is different and the number of injections and treatments will depend on the extent of your submental fullness. For many of our patients, 3-5 treatment sessions are recommended to accomplish the desired results.* Treatment sessions are spaced at least 1 month apart. Don’t worry — the results are worth the wait.
How Long Will My KYBELLA Results Last?
KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cell when injected into the fat under your chin, Once its destroyed then those cells can't store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA is not needed.
