What is Kybella®?
A double chin develops when you have an excess of submental fat under your chin. Most people believe that a double chin can only be caused by being overweight, but several factors may increase the likelihood of you having a double chin, specifically genetics and poor skin quality related to reduced elastin. Kybella® was developed to give patients with good skin quality an alternative to liposuction for a double chin.
Benefits of Kybella®
The benefits of Kybella® treatments include:
- No incisions or surgery
- No downtime
- Designed to gradually reduce submental fat
- Each treatment takes less than one hour
How Does Kybella® Work?
The Kybella® formulation contains deoxycholic acid, a substance that is found in the digestive system. In this role, deoxycholic acid helps the body by absorbing fat. The makers of Kybella® have found a way to harness this powerful benefit of deoxycholic acid to help patients reduce the amount of submental fat that causes a double chin.
Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?
If your double chin is caused by excess weight, Dr. Horton may recommend that you work towards reaching an ideal weight before having Kybella® treatments. Another consideration is the location of the fat, and Dr. Horton will assess this during your consultation.
What to Expect from Kybella®
Injectable treatments, such as Kybella®, are administered by making several injections with a fine-gauge needle. Depending on the nature of your submental fat, Dr. Horton may make as many as 50 injections during each appointment. The process may take 15 minutes to one hour. In clinical studies, the best results were achieved in patients who received at least three treatments every four to six weeks.
How Long is the Recovery After a Kybella® Treatment?
The injections for Kybella® treatments do not require any specific recovery period. You may see an improvement in your double chin after 12 to 16 weeks.
