Kybella Injections Eliminate Plastic Surgery Commonly Used on Submental Fullness

Picture this: you’re standing with your graduating class at your high school reunion for a picture-perfect moment, only to find that later, when it was posted on social media, your “double chin” made its appearance. Even though you are not overweight, this photo makes you look ten pounds heavier than you really are.

This happens to many men and women who deal with excess fat underneath the chin known as submental fullness. This excess fat gives the appearance of additional weight and can make patients feel self-conscious in situations where photos are being taken and they want to look their best. Instead of undergoing a plastic surgery procedure to achieve a youthful look and better chin and jowl contours, our team may suggest treatment with a cosmetic injectable called Kybella.

How Kybella targets the double thin

Kybella is the one and only injectable on the market today that has been approved for use in reducing submental fullness. This injectable is formulated with deoxycholic acid which can target unwanted fat cells and allow the body to naturally flush them out through the lymphatic system. This reduces the fat beneath the chin and improves one’s overall appearance—and confidence—with a reduce double chin.

Injectables of Kybella are performed several weeks apart, with most patients benefitting from two to three injections over time. The results are permanent, and patients can feel more confidence in common social situations. Kybella injections have little to no side effects on most of our patients, with the more common complaints including redness, itching, and discomfort at the injection site. This is typically well-tolerated by patients and short-term, while the changes from Kybella injections are long-lasting!
