Is Kybella Right For You?

Having extra fat under your chin is not ideal. A double chin can mask your jawline and facial contours leading to an older, heavier appearance. Having excess fat under the chin does not mean that you are overweight or in bad health. It could be a condition referred to as submental fullness. Dr. Shaddix and our team at Shaddix Plastic Surgery offer Kybella to treat submental fullness.

Kybella is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment for a double chin. This injectable treatment was designed specifically to treat submental fullness and help patients improve their jawline contour. 

What Causes Submental Fullness?

Submental fullness, also called the double chin, is a common facial aesthetic condition. There are many reasons why you may have submental fullness. The potential causes are:

  • Aging
  • Genetics
  • Weight Gain

You can exercise and eat healthily and still have submental fullness. This is an undertreated condition about which many adults feel self-conscious. With Kybella, we can help you look and feel more confident.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella is a simple, in-office treatment that only takes 15 to 20 minutes to perform. This treatment can be customized to suit your specific concerns and achieve your goals. Kybella is formulated from a naturally occurring molecule in the body called deoxycholic acid. This molecule aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When it is injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella effectively destroys the fat cells.  You may need a series of treatments for optimal results. 

Kybella Results

A major benefit of Kybella is that once the series of treatments is complete, you can enjoy your results without the need for retreatment. There is little to no downtime associated with this treatment. Most patients feel happier, skinnier, younger, and more confident after being treated with Kybella by Dr. Shaddix.
