This revolutionary injectable treatment, approved by the FDA, is designed to reduce excess fatty deposits at the root of the so-called “double chin”. By selecting these highly qualified plastic surgeons, with the extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, to administer your Kybella injections, you can reduce the sight of excess chin fat while minimizing risk and discomfort.*
Injectable Kybella: Procedural Details
Kybella is a new injectable intended to reduce submental fullness, or excess fat underneath the chin that can cause the appearance of a double chin. Currently the only injectable that is FDA-approved to target and reduce submental fullness, Kybella is comprised of a precision formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that allows the body to remove dietary fat. When precisely injected into the chin and neck area, Kybella reduces the cell membranes of the excess fat located on top of the next muscles. Once injected, the fat cells burst and are reabsorbed by the body. *
A standard Kybella injection can be administered in the office by one of our highly qualified medical practitioners in about 15-20 minutes, and involves very small injections into the chin area, usually spaced about 1cm apart. The injections utilize an extremely small needle, and for most patients, the treatment causes little discomfort. Side effects may be mild and temporary, and can include swelling, bruising, and numbness at the injection site. The injections do not require any significant downtime, and you can return to your regularly scheduled activities immediately. Individual results may vary, but most patients will require between two to six treatments spaced one month apart for optimal effect. *
