They say a camera adds 10 pounds, but a double chin can have the same effect. Known as submental fullness, excess fat beneath the chin is a cosmetic concern that can negatively impact your self-esteem and make you look heavier than you really are. Yet diet and exercise are often ineffective at reducing submental fullness, and you may be dismayed to find that a double chin remains despite your best efforts.

Fortunately, now you can permanently eliminate a double chin without surgery or downtime with Kybella. The first injectable treatment FDA-approved to melt away unwanted fat beneath the chin, Kybella is an effective solution for redefining your jawline and helping you achieve the slim facial profile you’ve always wanted.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for eliminating submental fat beneath the chin. A double chin is difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise alone, but Kybella uses a solution made with synthetic deoxycholic acid to permanently destroy unwanted fat cells. Deoxycholic acid is a substance normally found within the intestines that works to break down ingested fats. When injected beneath the skin, Kybella dissolves targeted fat cells, which are then flushed out by the body’s waste disposal process. Once treated fat cells are discarded, they’re unable to regrow or accumulate further, meaning the results are permanent once you achieve your desired look.

Is Kybella Right for Me?

As an injectable treatment, Kybella is a great option for those who want to avoid surgery or invasive procedures to eliminate fat beneath the chin. It is also recommended for those who have struggled to get rid of a double chin regardless of their fitness level. However, good candidates should have minimal skin laxity to ensure a firm, natural look as the skin settles over the newly formed contours that appear once unwanted fat melts away.

If you’re considering Kybella, this treatment may be right for you if:

  • You’ve bothered by submental fullness that just won’t go away
  • Excess fat beneath the chin makes you feel heavier or older
  • Diet or exercise hasn’t eliminated the appearance of a double chin
  • You prefer to avoid surgery or invasive procedures
  • You have good skin elasticity with minimal laxity
  • You want permanent, natural-looking results

To learn about Kybella and how it can help eliminate your double chin, schedule a consultation today at Broward ENT & Aesthetics. During your initial appointment, Dr. Wilson DuMornay and his team will determine if Kybella is right for you based on your treatment goals, medical history and skin care needs, then develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve slim, firm contours around your chin and jawline.

Your Kybella Treatment at Broward ENT & Aesthetics

Kybella is a relatively quick and simple aesthetic procedure that will be performed in-office at our location in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The entire process typically takes between 15 and 20 minutes from start to finish, but this can vary depending on the amount of submental fat present and the number of injections needed to achieve your goals.

During your treatment, you’ll be receiving multiple injections directly into the unwanted fat beneath the chin. Each injection takes just a few seconds to complete, but you may feel a slight pinch at the injection sites. To minimize any discomfort, a very small needle is used and a topical anesthetic may be requested before the procedure begins.

What to Expect After Your Treatment

After your appointment, you can immediately return home and resume all normal activities. There is no expected downtime after Kybella, but you may notice some swelling, soreness or bruising at the injection sites. These side effects are typical and will begin to subside within the next few days, but some patients prefer to schedule their treatment at a time with few work or social obligations nevertheless.

If you do experience significant swelling or discomfort, ice packs and over-the-counter medication can be used to provide temporary relief. You can also call the office if you have any questions or concerns after your treatment, which Dr. DuMornay and the aesthetic team will promptly address to ensure a smooth recovery.

Kybella Results

You may notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of your chin after your first Kybella treatment, but results will continue to develop as excess fat is naturally eliminated by the body’s waste disposal process. A more noticeable reduction in submental fullness will become apparent in the weeks after your procedure.

Depending on your desired outcome, you may need more than one treatment session to achieve the look you want. The results of your first treatment may be subtle, but most patients experience visible improvements after two to four rounds of Kybella injections. You can undergo up to six treatment sessions, with appointments spaced at least one month apart to ensure optimal results. Because each individual is different, our aesthetic team will develop a customized treatment plan just for you and recommend the right number of sessions for reaching your cosmetic goals.

Once you’ve achieved your desired results, eliminated fat cells won’t come back as long as you maintain a stable, healthy weight. With Kybella, unwanted fat is destroyed and can’t regrow or return, so you can enjoy permanent results without the need for further treatment.

Can Kybella be Combined with Other Treatments?

If you have other skin concerns in addition to submental fat beneath the chin, Kybella can be combined with other cosmetic treatments for more comprehensive rejuvenation of the face, neck and chin. Other injectables, including dermal fillers or Botox®, can be used to minimize fine lines, wrinkles and grooves around the mouth, eyes and nose, while skin tightening procedures can help reduce skin sagging or laxity in the upper and lower face. During your consultation, you can ask about the available treatment options and discuss your goals with Dr. DuMornay and the skin care team at Broward ENT & Aesthetics, who will develop a customized treatment plan designed to help you achieve your desired outcome.
