Double Chin Removal
Submental fullness, more commonly known as a double chin, is a dreaded part of the aging process for many men and women. Genetics, anatomy, and weight fluctuations also contribute to under chin fat, making you look heavier and older than you are.
If you are looking for a non-invasive approach to double chin removal, you may be a great candidate for Kybella. Made of deoxycholic acid, Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for double chin fat removal. Say goodbye to stubborn chin fullness with a simple office procedure-- that promises visible contouring results with little to no downtime.
The key to obtaining beautiful results and a refined jawline starts with your Kybella injector. At Dallas Dermatology Partners in Addison, quality patient care is our top priority. Our board-certified dermatologists administer Kybella treatments for double chin fat with the utmost precision and efficacy.
Kybella Double Chin Removal: Before & After
Yes, Kybella is a non-surgical option for improving the appearance of a double chin. It is designed to treat patients who are self-conscious about fat under the chin, who don’t want to undertake the risks of liposuction.
Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by the gallbladder to break down dietary fat. When injected under the chin, Kybella disrupts fat cell membranes, inhibiting their ability to store fat. The cells are metabolized by the body and expelled as waste.
The in-office procedure takes just 10 minutes to complete. The skin is prepped with a local anesthetic before Kybella is injected into targeted areas. The injection amounts vary, but most patients receive 20-40 injections per session.
Our dermatologists will customize a Kybella treatment plan based on your jawline profile and the amount of under chin fat removal needed. Everyone is different, but many patients see notable improvements after just two sessions, while others need six Kybella treatments for optimal results.
Kybella is indicated for adults in good general health and are frustrated with localized submental fat. If you are pregnant or planning to start a family in the near future, you should hold off on getting Kybella. Also, this injectable treatment is not a substitute for a neck lift and will not correct a double chin characterized by extremely loose and sagging skin.
It takes time for the body to process and excrete the destroyed fat cells, so a more sculpted chin and neckline will develop over a matter of weeks, not days. Most patients see the best results after having three to six Kybella treatments, spaced at least one month apart.
There are no special instructions for aftercare, only ice and ibuprofen to relieve soreness. Inflammation is expected and shows the product is working--residual swelling can last a couple of weeks.
Yes, once the adipose cells under the chin are destroyed, they can no longer store fat, making this a truly permanent solution for bothersome submental fullness.
The most common side effects of Kybella under chin injections include:
- Mild bruising
- Soreness at the injection site
Some patients can develop hard lumps after the injections, but this should resolve within 7-10 days. More serious complications include possible nerve injury and facial muscle weakness. As with any medical procedure, it’s important to choose a skilled practitioner to minimize risk of adverse outcomes.
