For those unhappy with excess fat under the chin, Kybella is a new injectable solution that can effectively reduce the fullness for a more contoured profile.
Having what is known as a “double chin” is an extremely common cosmetic concern. It can affect the entire facial aesthetic and tends to make people feel self-conscious about their appearance. While the problem can be due to lax skin or loose platysmal bands, a double chin can also be caused by excess fatty tissue. Although this has always been treated with surgery, like liposuction or a neck lift, we are pleased to offer the first and only non-surgical treatment of Kybella.
This innovative injectable treatment is FDA-approved to reduce excess fat under the chin (also known as submental fullness). Kybella has been shown to create a more defined facial contour with an improved profile, eliminating the unwanted appearance of a double chin. The injectable is composed of deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body to break down dietary fat. It works by dissolving the targeted fat tissue, which is then removed through metabolic processes.
Our board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeons have more than 100 years of combined experience in all facets of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. As a qualified and compassionate team, they share a goal of providing a safe and rewarding plastic surgery experience while creating exceptional results worthy of your trust.
Kybella is a great option for those unhappy with a double chin, and the treatment holds several advantages, including the following:
During the injectable treatment, our nurse injector will administer the formula with a very fine needle. She can numb the area prior to injection to minimize any discomfort. The entire process is relatively quick and is performed in-office for a convenient solution. Depending on the extent of the patient’s needs, the procedure should take no more than 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Most patients require a series of two to four injectable sessions to achieve optimal results.

Downtime following a Kybella session is typically short. However, it is not uncommon to experience mild swelling, bruising, and numbness for the first couple of days, all of which are temporary and should quickly fade.
At the Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we look forward to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals. Please request your consultation with our easy-to-use online form or call our office at (734) 712-2323 to schedule your visit.
