What Causes Submental Fullness?
This cosmetic condition cannot always be corrected with diet and exercise alone and can be influenced by factors like weight gain, heredity, the natural aging process, and more. Although there are surgical procedures available to remove excess fat from underneath the chin, Kybella® can provide a minimally-invasive alternative for men and women who either do not want or do not qualify for surgery.
What is Kybella®?
Derived from deoxycholic acid, Kybella® is a series of injections administered into the fatty tissues underneath the chin. This FDA-approved treatment can be an ideal solution to correcting moderate to severe cases of submental fullness without surgery or downtime. In just 2-4 treatment sessions, many patients experience visibly firmer, more elevated profiles, but individual treatment protocols may vary.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once Kybella® is administered below the chin, it permanently disables fat cells and prevents them from storing or accumulating fat. The result is a noticeable double chin reduction, and once your individual aesthetic goals are achieved, further treatment is typically no longer necessary.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As this mechanism of action is found naturally in the body, patients are typically able to undergo treatment without any side effects of complications. Sites of injection may be slightly bruised, swollen, red, or itchy, but these are minor and subside quickly. All relevant safety information will be shared with you during your consultation, and a comprehensive evaluation will be performed to ensure that this treatment is safe for you.
