DOUBLE CHIN TREATMENT

Double Chin (Kybella)

Naples Plastic Surgery

If you have a double chin, it may make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Double chins affect many people, regardless of frame size and body weight, and many wish to eliminate them. Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for “submental fullness” which is more commonly known as the double chin. Kybella® is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a natural compound found in the body, which breaks down and absorbs fat.

Kybella® Treatment Areas

Kybella® is approved to treat the fat in the submental region, which is the area directly under the chin.

What Is A Double Chin?

The double chin is a common condition in men, and it often causes one's face and neck to appear imbalanced, older, and heavier.
A broad range of people are affected by submental fullness, including people who are not overweight. This condition can be caused by aging, genetics, and weight gain. The area under the chin is typically resistant to traditional weight loss methods and may need intervention by a plastic surgeon to be fully eliminated.

How Does Kybella® Work?

Kybella® is a synthetic form of a naturally occuring substance in the body that breaks down and absorbs fat. When injected into the treatment area, Kybella begins to wipe out fat cells immediately. Once it has destroyed those cells, they can no longer store fat, which typically makes repeated treatments unnecessary.
Kybella® is injected into the affected area by Dr. Paul Gardner or Dr. Leo Baccaro in a procedure that typically lasts around 20 minutes. Be sure to speak with your surgeon about how you would like your chin and neck profile to appear after the procedure.

Recovering from Kybella®

Most patients find the discomfort associated with the procedure to be very tolerable. You may experience a slight burning sensation during and shortly after the procedure, typically lasting no more than 15 minutes. You may also experience a tenderness in the area following the procedure.

How Long Does Kybella® Last?

Kybella® is a permanent procedure because the fat cells are destroyed and removed from your body for good.
