Get rid of your double chin with KYBELLA
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” The board-certified plastic surgeons at Twin City Plastic Surgery can consult with you to find out if you are a candidate for this injection.
Generally, KYBELLA® may be right for you if:
- You are bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness.
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are.
- You don’t want to have surgery.
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. This acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® will destroy fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in mass under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
