KYBELLA – Non-Surgical Treatment for a Double Chin

Kybella_Injection_Logo_RGBMany individuals suffer from a collection of excess fat in the upper area of the neck and under the chin – a condition commonly referred to as a “double chin.” Surgery has traditionally been the only way to successfully reduce the appearance of a double chin in most cases… until now. KYBELLA is a revolutionary new treatment available here at The LoVerme Center. This injectable procedure can reduce excess fat under the chin without the need for surgery or excessive downtime.

KYBELLA is the only non-surgical treatment that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to minimize what’s known as submental fullness (excess fat under the chin). It is a relatively quick procedure that can be performed here in the office. The KYBELLA solution contains deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that occurs naturally in the human body. This particular molecule aids in the breakdown of dietary fat. KYBELLA utilizes this molecule to eliminate excess fat cells in targeted areas under the chin. Once those cells have been destroyed, they will be filtered out of the body through natural processes over time.

Excess fat under the chin that proves resistant to diet and exercise is a very common condition, even for those who are of a healthy weight. KYBELLA offers a non-surgical solution that can effectively minimize the appearance of a double-chin and enhance your facial profile with long-lasting – perhaps even permanent – results.  

KYBELLA Treatment

The KYBELLA solution will be injected into targeted areas of excess fat under the chin with a very fine needle. These areas can be numbed before treatment to reduce discomfort. Depending on the number of injections required for your unique needs, most KYBELLA procedures only take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. In most cases, two to four KYBELLA treatment sessions are necessary to achieve the best results.

KYBELLA can be very effective for patients who are experiencing a double chin due to excess fat in the area; however, those with conditions primarily involving loose, inelastic skin as opposed to fat under the chin would not be ideal candidates for this treatment. Dr. Paul LoVerme will evaluate your needs during the initial consultation and talk with you about your options. If KYBELLA is not the best treatment for your goals, he will suggest alternatives that can provide an effective solution.

KYBELLA Results

Some mild swelling and bruising will likely be present around the injection sites after KYBELLA treatment. These effects will subside after a few days. Most patients are able to resume normal daily activities right after the procedure. As the excess fat cells are gradually filtered from the body, the results of KYBELLA will become more and more apparent.
One of the major benefits of KYBELLA is that it is designed to provide results that are permanent since it destroys the excess fat cells. If you would like more information on this advanced treatment, or if you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. LoVerme, please contact us today.
