Sculpt Your Jawline with Kybella

No one likes the idea of excess fat underneath the chin but this problem has become more common over time. Submental fullness has also been referred to as “tech-neck” because instances of this complaint have increased as we’ve entered into the era of smart phone use. When looking down to view a screen, the tissue beneath the chin gets compressed, which can lead to a fuller, fatter appearance. This gets exacerbated with age and the loss of tissue firmness. 

Regardless of age, a double chin creates the appearance of weight and also of looking older. Due to the area in which it is located, submental fullness is not something we can easily eliminate with weight loss because it is rarely related to obesity alone. That’s why we have Kybella and why this treatment is so popular. We are pleased to offer this treatment in our Sarasota office. With a few treatments, the active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, destroys fat cells for good. The cells that are destroyed get flushed by the body.

What to Expect

If you are interested in Kybella injections to get rid of a double chin, expect to need at least two treatments. More significant double chin fat needs 4 to 6 sessions. We schedule these about once a month and, bit by bit, you see a more sculpted chin. Keep in mind that, after each session, you may notice considerable swelling. This happens because treatment introduces a fair amount of deoxycholic acid into the intracellular space. It can take a few days for the liquid to absorb. Until that time, you may wear scarves or higher-necked shirts. 

Kybella is beneficial in several ways. Patients appreciate that this treatment:

  • Is minimally invasive with no downtime.
  • Delivers comparable results to chin liposuction without the risks of surgery.
  • Achieves permanent results that occur gradually, making them look even more natural. 

Are You a Good Candidate for Kybella?

Kybella is approved for adults aged 18 and over. Generally, treatment is sought by adults who are frustrated about the appearance of stubborn fat beneath the chin. They prefer a nonsurgical solution and understand that Kybella works more gradually than liposuction. Good candidates are not pregnant or breastfeeding and are able to complete the recommended series of sessions to achieve their desired results.
