If you’re bothered by the pesky area of fat under the chin, it may be time to consider the first FDA-approved injectable, non-surgical liposuction alternative. Like liposuction, Kybella can remove those isolated fat deposits under the chin. The fat cells are permanently destroyed and can’t be rejuvenated. However, unlike surgery, there is no anesthesia or incisions, and little to no downtime for recovery. Kybella isn’t the best choice for patients with excess skin.
Kybella is an easy, safe, in-office procedure where you’ll receive about 15-50 injections, depending on your needs. The procedure takes about 20 minutes to complete. You’ll need between 2-4 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart and should see results after the second treatment. We usually like to perform the procedure close to the weekend, because there is some “social downtime” with some swelling, bruising, numbness and hardness in the treatment area. This can last a few days, however the hardness and numbness could last until the next treatment. Finally, a great solution to re-contour that “double chin” and create a more balanced you!
