Along with fine lines, under-eye bags and sun spots, one of the unfortunate effects that aging has on the skin is sagging. Around the chin, the skin sags and fills with fat, creating a much-dreaded “double chin.” Known clinically as convexity, or fullness associated with submental fat, the appearance of multiple chins can develop around the neck area as more bothersome fat develops. Fortunately, there’s an FDA-approved treatment that can help treat the area without surgery or extended downtime.
Kybella™ (deoxycholic acid) non-surgical treatment for double chins
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment for double or multiple chins, or submental fullness. Kybella is a man-made form of deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. This active ingredient safely aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When Kybella is injected into the chin area, it destroys the fat cells and causes them to lose their ability to store and accumulate fat. The result is a more contoured profile and significant improvement of the appearance of double chins in as little as 15 to 20 minutes. The effects of Kybella on other parts of the body have not been proven.
Kybella treatment program
The skilled plastic surgeons at Monarch Plastic Surgery will meet with you to determine whether you are a good candidate for Kybella treatments. If double or multiple chins have bothered you, we encourage you to discuss your concerns with a Monarch plastic surgeon. Your surgeon will work with you to determine the best treatment plan for the results you want to achieve.
Kybella treatments are typically spaced about four weeks apart to allow your surgeon to determine how to achieve the contouring you desire. Most patients receive two to four Kybella treatments before they notice a visible change in the contouring of their chin. Depending on the individual, up to 6 treatments may be required to reach the patient’s desired result.
