If you’re bothered by fullness underneath your chin, you’re not alone. Submental fullness, or “double chin,” is a common yet undertreated condition. Often resistant to diet and exercise, even fit and slim people struggle with this problem area. In fact, 67% of people surveyed said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness.
Now, there is a new way to eliminate double chin that involves no surgery and offers permanent results. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of submental fullness, and patients and doctors agree: it really works!
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Kybella right for me?
Kybella is best for patients with moderate to severe submental fullness. We can help you determine if Kybella is a good choice for you during your initial consultation.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in the body and helps to break down and absorb fat. When injected, Kybella causes the permanent destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells no longer store or accumulate fat.
What are Kybella treatments like?
Kybella is injected into the fat beneath the chin using small needles. A topical anesthetic is applied to maximize comfort. Some patients report mild discomfort, but most do not consider treatments to be painful.
How many treatments will I need?
We will tailor your treatment plan to deliver the best possible results. Most patients see improvement in 2 to 4 treatment sessions, but up to 6 sessions may be recommended. Once your desired appearance is achieved, permanent results are expected.
How soon can I start?
You can begin receiving Kybella injections on the same day as your consultation. Treatment is performed in-office and one session lasts less than 30 minutes. Further treatments are spaced 4 weeks apart.
