What is Kybella®?
“Submental fullness” (fullness in the area underneath the chin) can cause your facial profile to appear older or heavier than you actually are. Many times, patients will refer to this area as their “double chin.” However, you don’t have to be overweight to have fullness in the area underneath your chin, and sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, this fullness may not go away completely. Although weight gain and aging can certainly contribute to unwanted fullness in this area, many people have a genetic predisposition for additional fullness in this area, and it may still be present to some degree in leaner and younger individuals.
Kybella® is a first-of-its-kind injectable product that works to permanently eliminate fat cells under the chin that can cause submental fullness. This injection can make a large difference to improve the appearance of your profile, as well as improving the contour and shape of your jawline. By permanently eliminating the excess fat in the submental area, you can get rid of the fullness or “double-chin” appearance that bothers you in pictures, without having the downtime of a surgical procedure such as liposuction.
