Melt away your double chin with Kybella™
Kybella™, comprised of deoxycholic acid, is an FDA-approved treatment of moderate to severe submental fat under the chin in adults. Deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body and helps absorb fat. When injected into the chin area, Kybella™ destroys fat cells and restores definition to the facial profile.
Traditionally, excess fat in the chin has been extracted with liposuction or facial surgeries. While these also remove chin fat, they also require extensive recovery and healing. Kybella™ is a non-surgical alternative that allows the patient to return to normal activities much sooner.
What to Expect
Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Some patients experience temporary swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. Fewer patients have experience trouble swallowing.
