Double Chin

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

To find out if Kybella™ is the right fit, every patient receives a consultation with an AMI provider. During these appointments several factors such as current health, medical history, cosmetic goals and expectations will be evaluated. The extent of treatment depends on the individual condition. If this treatment is determined to be a good fit, payment is taken at this time and the treatment is scheduled.
At each treatment, patients are given multiple small injections under the chin. Some receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 Kybella® treatments.

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.
