What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that will reduce submental fullness, commonly called a “double chin.” Submental fullness can be caused by various factors, including genetics, weight gain, and aging, and is challenging to address through diet and exercise alone. KYBELLA offers a non-surgical solution to reduce excess fat beneath the chin and improve the contour of the jawline.

The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA works to destroy fat cells, causing them to be gradually eliminated from the body through the natural metabolic process. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. As a result, the treated area becomes more sculpted and defined over time, leading to a smoother and more contoured profile.

KYBELLA A Rapid In-Office Procedure

After your initial consultation, your KYBELLA treatment will be administered by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Anu Antony. During each session, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, typically taking about 15 to 20 minutes. The number of injections will depend on the amount of fat present and your desired profile.

Treatment Sessions Tailored To You

The number of KYBELLA treatment sessions varies from patient to patient, depending on the amount and distribution of submental fat. Up to six treatments one month apart may be necessary for best results. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received six KYBELLA treatments. In our office, Dr. Antony will ensure your aesthetic goals are considered to make the best treatment plan. 

Low-Stress Recovery

After KYBELLA treatment, you can leave the office and return to your daily activities, though you must avoid heavy exercise for the first few days. After the topical anesthetic wears off, you will likely experience mild redness or swelling under the chin. Some patients also experience bruising at the injection site. These symptoms will typically subside in a matter of days to a week.

What Are the Benefits of KYBELLA?

If you are considering tackling the stubborn fat under your chin, you may want to consider these potential benefits of KYBELLA treatment: 

Tailored Treatment Plan Based on Individual Needs and Goals

Every patient’s aesthetic goals and anatomical concerns are unique, so KYBELLA treatment offers a personalized approach to submental fat reduction. During the initial consultation, Dr. Antony will assess your chin profile, discuss your desired outcomes, and develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs. KYBELLA treatments can be adjusted to deliver optimal results that align with your expectations.

Long-lasting Results with Minimal Downtime

One of the most appealing aspects of KYBELLA treatment is its ability to deliver long-lasting results with minimal downtime. While traditional surgical procedures may require weeks of recovery, KYBELLA injections typically involve little to no downtime, allowing patients to resume their daily activities shortly after treatment. As the targeted fat cells are gradually metabolized and eliminated by the body, patients can expect to enjoy noticeable improvements in chin definition that can last for years.

Non-surgical Solution for Reducing Submental Fat

KYBELLA represents a groundbreaking non-surgical approach. Unlike more invasive procedures, KYBELLA offers a minimally invasive alternative that does not require incisions or anesthesia.

Improved Jawline Definition and Facial Contouring

Besides reducing submental fullness, KYBELLA treatment offers the added benefit of improving jawline definition and overall facial contouring. Patients can enjoy enhanced facial harmony and balance, boosting self-confidence and increased self-esteem.

Am I a Candidate for KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is suitable for individuals over 18 looking to reduce excess fat under the chin and improve their jawline. If you’re bothered by a double chin or lack of definition in your jawline, KYBELLA may be an ideal solution.
