If you think you have to live with a double chin, you're wrong. If you think surgery is the only way to get rid of the double chin, you're wrong again. An effective, nonsurgical way to treat a double chin is with Kybella®. The injectable drug is used by the medical professionals at the Aesthetic Center of Gainesville to target the fat beneath the chin and in the upper neck. Kybella’s active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, works to destroy the fat in the area to leave a slimmer, more contoured neck and profile.

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella®, works by destroying the dietary fat in the submental area. It will take 2 – 6 treatment sessions for patients to get their best results, but 79% of patients in clinical trials were satisfied from the final results of their Kybella® treatments and they reported feeling that they looked younger, happier, and more confident.
During/After the Procedure
The plastic surgeon will clean the area to be treated and then carefully make multiple injections under the chin with the Kybella®. Patients generally begin to see results after 2 – 4 treatment sessions, but if needed, patients can have up to 6 Kybella® treatments with no more than a 4 week break between sessions. Many patients report minor, temporary side effects after their treatment, including pain, redness, numbness, swelling, and bruising.
Plan Your Procedure
Once the Kybella® treatments have destroyed the fat cells in the submental area, they are permanently gone. However, patients should maintain a healthy, stable weight after the procedure to prevent weight gain in other areas.
Kybella® has been approved by the F.D.A., scientists have performed over 20 clinical studies, and over 1,600 patients have been treated with Kybella®. Patients should disclose their full medical history during their consultation, including any current medications, herbs, and supplements. Kybella® is not approved for use in patients under 18 years old and should not be used outside the neck and chin area.
Kybella® Vs. Liposuction?
Kybella® neck treatments and traditional neck liposuction are both effective and similarly priced, but Kybella® does not involve surgery, general anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery. We will discuss both methods during the initial consultation and help the patient determine their best treatment plan.
