Until now small pockets of excess fat under the chin was a very difficult issue to treat. Liposuction provided the best results for removing that fat but with the procedure came risks of a surgical procedure as well as downtime and recovery. Then came Kybella! Kybella is a non-surgical procedure that helps eliminate the fat that collects under the chin, which can assist in giving you a stronger profile and renewed confidence. So many of us find that no amount of exercise or dieting can eliminate that stubborn fat under the chin. Kybella may very well be the solution to that struggle.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable to help combat submental fullness, know colloquially as a “double chin.” The main factor used to eradicate fat is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that naturally occurs in the body. This molecule is instrumental in aiding in the breakdown of fatty cells. Once destroyed, these cells are no longer capable of absorbing and storing fat, meaning that once the timeline of injections is complete, fat can no longer gather in that area.

How Does Kybella Work?

Generally a Kybella treatment session takes between 15 to 20 minutes, focusing on small injections in the problem area. The number of injections will depend on your ultimate aesthetic goals and the treatment plan developed by Dr. Franckle based on those goals. At most, a patient may need six injection appointments. Since Kybella doesn’t involve surgery, it can be done with little interruption to your daily routine, and it comes with minimized risks as compared to a surgical procedure. It also leaves no surgical scars which is a big plus for many of our patients.

What to Expect at Your Kybella Treatment

An exciting advantage of Kybella is seeing your profile take shape after each additional session. With fat cells destroyed at each treatment, you may be able to notice improvements soon after beginning the regimen and continuing throughout the period. As the chin becomes lean, a naturally smooth neck will reveal itself and for some patients the rest of the face can appear more slender as well. The natural contours of the face may be able to reemerge without the distraction of the fat pouch attached. Dr. Franckle and our staff can direct you on how to best handle the side effects from each injection, which can include jaw soreness, minimal swelling, and numbness.

Is Kybella Right for You?

Fat collecting under the chin can occur due to age, genetics, poor diet, or all of the above. A meeting with Dr. Franckle and an outline of your goals set the parameters of your treatment plan. A number of other factors can come into play, such as the size fat deposits, your overall health and medical history. A full consultation before any treatment is required to help determine any health risks.
