Kybella for Men
Many men live with submental fullness, also known as a double chin. This condition can be caused due to heredity, weight gain, or aging, and can cause self-consciousness among many. If you are interested in eliminating your double chin without surgery, Kybella® may be able to help.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment to eliminate a double chin. Made up of deoxycholic acid, Kybella® works to break down and absorb dietary fat. This treatment is a great alternative to liposuction for a slimmer chin and neck appearance.
Who is a Kybella® Candidate?
Men who are tired of living with a double chin who wish to forego surgical treatment can benefit from Kybella®. Candidates should be 18 years of age or older and have good skin elasticity. A consultation with one of our injection specialists can help to determine if this treatment is right for you.
The Kybella® Procedure
The Kybella® treatment is done in-office and takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. During the procedure, our injector will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area. This will ensure a comfortable treatment experience. Then, Kybella® will be injected into various areas of the chin using a fine needle. Patients often require 2-4 treatment sessions to achieve desired results.
Recovery from Kybella®
There is little to no downtime associated with Kybella® injections. Mild swelling, bruising, and numbness may occur, but patients can return to work as soon as they feel comfortable. Results from Kybella® are long-lasting, if not permanent, so you enjoy your new chin profile for years to come.
