You invest in yourself – now invest in your profile. Kybella® provides a non-surgical, FDA-approved solution to the unwanted fat beneath the chin. Kybella uses a naturally occurring bio-acid (deoxycholic acid) to destroy problem fat cells beneath the chin. When injected, your body begins the process of naturally eliminating this excess fat, gradually leaving behind a slim and well-sculpted chin and jawline. The exciting news…Kybella results are permanent!
A double chin is a common issue for both men and women, particularly as they age. According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), two-thirds of adults admit they are just as concerned about their double chin as they are about lines and wrinkles around their eyes. Submental fat can make you look like you have gained weight even if you haven’t gained a pound. It can also add years to your appearance, making you look much older than you feel.
Unfortunately, diet and exercise will not help to reverse a double chin. In the past, the best way to eliminate submental fullness was through surgical liposuction. Today, patients can achieve very similar results without incisions, anesthesia or an extended recovery period.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body to assist with the absorption of fats. When it is injected underneath the chin, it destroys fat cells that are then eliminated through the body’s natural processes. The result is a leaner, more sculpted chin that develops over time. Kybella was approved by the FDA in 2015 after clinical studies showed very good results in submental fat reduction.
Kybella is appropriate for men and women that are concerned about submental fullness. It can be used on any skin type and tone. The procedure has only been approved for treatment of submental fat at this time and should not be used in any other areas of the face or body.
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella?
Kybella may be the right treatment for you if:
- You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You don’t want to have surgery
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
Recovery & Results
Although you may return to regular activities after your Kybella treatment, you will want to ice the treatment area throughout the day. For this reason, many of our patients decide to take their treatment day off so they can remain at home to recover from their procedure comfortably. Swelling and mild discomfort are typical after Kybella injections. The swelling may last 2-3 weeks before subsiding completely.
Most patients will begin to see results within 30 days of their initial Kybella treatment. Those with significant submental fullness may require multiple treatment sessions to achieve full results. In most cases, 3-4 treatment sessions, spaced about four weeks apart, will be sufficient. Once the final results become evident, they will be long-lasting since fat cells are permanently destroyed in the area.
Kybella is an effective way to eliminate a double chin without surgery or an extended recovery period.
Covid Vaccine & Cosmetic Filler Announcement
To date, there has been a small number of cases where the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was suspected of triggering localized swelling in people who had dermal fillers (most often in the face or lips). The few cases that have occurred have all been temporary and resolved. While this is extremely rare, we recommend that if a patient is concerned about any potential side effects from receiving dermal fillers, that they wait at least 2 weeks before and after their COVID-19 vaccine.
At Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, our priority is YOU, the patient. We look forward to helping you!
