If you’re tired of your double chin adding age and weight to your appearance, we offer Kybella™ treatments to remove submental fat and create a beautifully sculpted face and profile.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-surgical injectable cosmetic procedure that dissolves the excess fat that accumulates underneath the chin. FDA approved since 2015, Kybella is the first injectable treatment to treat a double chin without surgery.

Benefits of Kybella

Kybella is very popular because it targets the hard-to-lose excess fat underneath the chin. This fat can be very difficult to get rid of because it’s often caused by genetics. Key benefits of Kybella include:

  • Non-surgical
  • Quick and convenient
  • Minimal pain
  • Little downtime
  • Beautifully contoured profile
  • Permanent results

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is made of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which our bodies produce naturally to help break down and absorb fat. So when Kybella injections are administered to excess fat underneath the chin, it destroys underlying fat cells within the area, making it impossible for fat to be stored there anymore.

Kybella treatment details

Kybella treatments are quick and convenient, taking only around twenty minutes. Before your Kybella treatment, you will be given a topical anesthetic to help with any discomfort. Dr. Craft may mark your skin to help guide the 10 to 50 injections, and will then begin administering the treatment. The majority of individuals get the best results from Kybella with 2 to 4 treatment sessions spaced six weeks apart.

Results from Kybella

For most patients, results are noticeable after 2 to 3 Kybella sessions. The number of treatments you’ll need will be determined by the amount of fat that is being removed. Once you’re pleased with the outcome, there is no need for maintenance treatments, like there is with dermal fillers. Once Kybella has destroyed the fat cells, they are permanently gone.

Kybella candidates

If you’re interested in Kybella treatments, you may be exactly right for this treatment. The best candidates for Kybella:

  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Have a moderate double chin
  • Have good skin quality with minimal laxity
  • Are not obese
  • Understand that Kybella is not a weight loss procedure
  • Have a realistic expectation for results

Your Kybella consultation

Before your Kybella double chin reduction, you will have a consultation with Dr. Craft so that he can go over your questions and aesthetic goals. A treatment plan will be created just for you after you have discussed all the details together. Side effects with Kybella can include bruising, swelling, light pain, redness, and/or temporary hardening under the chin, and your consultation is the perfect place to voice any concerns about this with Dr. Craft.
