Our plastic surgeons at Inspire Aesthetics can help you eliminate that fat under your chin (submental fat) with Kybella injections. Under the chin is a difficult place to lose weight, especially if you have never been overweight or do not need to lose weight. A double chin appearance can happen to anyone of any size. This is why Kybella is such a great treatment! It will battle your smallest under the chin bulge with great success. Kybella is safe for spot fat reduction under your chin where the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its safety for patients over the age of 18. It is made up of deoxycholic acid, which will destroy the fat cells that store stubborn chin fat. Kybella can be used in place of a neck liposuction treatment if you do not have a thick neck or have too much chin fat to lose. Our plastic surgeons in Fort Lauderdale and Delray Beach, FL may recommend other treatments to combine with your Kybella injections for optimal results. You may also need several treatment sessions to eliminate your double chin.
If you are 18-years-of-age and older, you may qualify for Kybella if you have the following:
- Mild to moderate fat under your chin (also known as a "double chin," or "turkey neck")
- A recommendation for a nonsurgical approach for neck fat reduction
You may not wish to have neck liposuction as this stage in your life, and Kybella allows you to have a nonsurgical treatment that is injected into the submental area (where the chin and neck meet) to reduce fat and correct your facial profile.
"Chris did an amazing job on my liquid rhinoplasty. I came in wanting to conceal a bump on my bridge and lift my tip and he did not stop until he achieved perfection. He took his time and literally worked from every angle to ensure both safety and symmetry. Besides being a highly skilled master of his work, he is so personable. He made me feel safe, comfortable, supported, and just happy! Two weeks later after everything is completely settled my results are still perfect. For any future touch ups, I’m only going to him. He also gave me a Botox brow lift which came out great. The receptionists/assistants were friendly and professional, and the facility itself was immaculate and very impressive. I highly recommend Chris and Inspire Cosmetics."- E.H. / Google / Feb 04, 2021
What to Expect
At your out-patient Kybella injection session in our office, we will mark the area of your neck to be treated and topically numb the area before beginning the needle insertion. Prepare yourself for several small injections into the fatty area of the chin. Icing the area may also be used to limit the amount of pain you feel after the injection. You can expect your treatment session to last about 15 – 20 minutes. Many of our patients have multiple sessions (2 – 6) spaced out a month a part.
The good news about Kybella injections is that there is no downtime, however, patients will experience swelling and some minor pain, bruising, and redness. These side effects may last a couple days, and if they last longer, please contact our office. Many of our patients see a distinct change in their neck fat with one treatment! However, most patients want to see a noticeable difference and come back for the full series of injection sessions.
