How Kybella® Can Help Contour Your Face

Stubborn body fat can change the shape of nearly everywhere in our body. While in some areas, this body fat can be reduced by a healthy diet and exercise, others can be especially difficult to address. The area below the chin can be challenging to remove excess fat cells.

Also called submental fullness, this can lead to the appearance of a “double chin” or lack of definition between the neck and the chin. Although there can be some decrease in this submental fullness, the appearance of a “double chin” can remain.

Depending on the number of fat cells you want to have removed will change whether or not a non-invasive or minimally invasive procedure will achieve your goals. In some cases, liposuction can be used if there is a significant amount of fat to be removed.

However, there is a non-invasive way to help reduce the fat cells in your chin and reduce or eliminate the submental fullness and appearance of a double chin. As the only FDA-approved injectable treatment option to reduce fat in the submental area, Kybella® quickly and safely destroys fat cells and helps to contour your jawline.

Kybella® is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body. During the treatment session that can be conducted in the office, your doctor will inject precise amounts of deoxycholic acid into targeted areas in the chin.

The deoxycholic acid gently and safely breaks down and destroys the fat cells in the area. Your body’s natural metabolic processes then “clean up” the remnants. Although Kybella® is very effective at eliminating fat cells, it does not remove or tighten excess skin. If there is significant submental fullness, the use of Kybella® may result in excess skin.

Don’t let stubborn submental fullness keep you from achieving the aesthetic look of your face and jawline.
