Is A Double Chin Stopping You From Looking Your Best?

Introducing Kybella® – Say Goodbye to Submental Fullness

A double chin can bring down your confidence and betray your age. If you’re feeling the effects of a double chin, referred to as “submental fullness,” Kybella® may be able to help you get rid of it and help you to achieve a youthful, well-contoured jawline. Longwood Plastic Surgery has helped countless patients achieve their desired contours through both surgical and non-surgical procedures alike.

How Does Kybella® Work?

Kybella® contains deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally within the body. Deoxycholic acid aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When administered correctly, Kybella® prepares fat cells in the chin for natural metabolization and helps to keep them off. Once removed, cells cannot retain or absorb fat after they are broken down.

Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?

If you are looking to rid yourself of a double chin but want to avoid surgery, Kybella® may be right for you. Kybella® is super-effective and long-lasting. Because of the powerful nature of deoxycholic acid, it’s important to have a skilled injector perform the procedure. At Longwood Plastic Surgery, we have over 40 years of experience in the business and can provide you with a skilled, board-certified professional that can help you achieve the results you want with ease.

How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?

Your specialist will be able to determine the duration and intensity of treatments based on your chin profile. Some patients have seen the desired results after 2 treatments, but typical desired results can take up to 6 treatments that are spaced out a month apart. Once results are achieved, retreatments and touch-ups are not necessary or needed.

What Results Will I See?*

Desired results are tailored to each patient, but results include less-pronounced submental fullness and in some cases complete removal of a double chin altogether. Patients can expect a more contoured, chiseled jawline. Once the desired aesthetic is reached, patients can expect long-lasting results with no further treatment necessary. Typical side effects include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness and redness and will likely subside after 48 hours. More severe side effects may occur if administered improperly, which is why getting a skilled doctor is important. We want you to have the best treatment possible. Consult our specialists with any concerns. 

Is There Any Downtime?

Because Kybella® is injected, recovery is minimal. Patients can expect to experience very little downtime, but the amount varies from person to person and may vary based on the severity of the treatment. It is advised for patients to avoid strenuous activity and alcohol for 24 hours after each treatment. While downtime can be very short, your injector specialist will provide you with an individualized aftercare regime.
