Kybella


For treatment of double chin

It is a common, yet under treated facial aesthetic condition that can:
     Detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance
     Lead to an older and heavier look
     Impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men
     Be caused by aging, genetics and/or weight gain


According to a 2015 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67% of consumers are bothered by submental fullness—or double chin.

Our physician will evaluate your chin area to see if you are a candidate for the procedure.  Those who have very loose skin, like a turkey neck, may be directed to a plastic surgeon, as this treatment will not help them.  To begin, the neck is cleansed and a topical numbing agent is applied.  A special grid is then placed onto the skin.  This grid was designed by Allergan. specifically for this procedure.  Then the Kybella is injected just under the skin with a very small needle.  The procedure, itself. is not uncomfortable.  Patients will, however, describe a burning sensation, like sunburn, that lasts about an hour or two following the procedure.  There may be some swelling or numbness that may last a week or two after the procedure.  As the fat cells under the chin are broken down, the body’s own immune system will take them permanently away.  Patients should be prepared for 2-5 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart to achieve a good cosmetic result.  

The advantage of Kybella over a neck lift, or liposuction is:
       Minimal down time
       No general anesthesia
       No cutting or scars
       Minimal loss of time from work.  Can be done over lunch.

Patients asking about their submental fullness may, at times, refer to it as their “double chin.”
