Say Goodbye to Submental Fullness with Kybella

Posted on September 15, 2016

Are you tired of looking in the mirror, only to see a double chin staring back at you? Many people find themselves in this situation, but do not wish to undergo surgery to remedy the situation. Luckily, there is another, non-surgical solution for submental fullness: Kybella. Read on to learn about what Kybella can do for you.


Submental Fullness

Submental fullness, or a double chin, can be caused by different factors. Some people have had this excess fat their entire lives due to hereditary influences, while others develop it due to weight gain. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable used to eliminate a double chin in adults ages 18 and older.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment made up of synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. A treatment session entails many small injections in the area of your submental fat. Once Kybella destroys unwanted fat cells, your body then naturally disposes of them. These destroyed cells can also no longer store or accumulate fat.


Most patients can expect to see results after 2-4 treatment sessions. After these sessions are complete, your submental fullness should not return, unless major lifestyle changes occur, like weight gain.
