Introducing Kybella: the First Minimally-Invasive Double Chin Treatment!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 04, 2015 AT 2:08 PM  by Dr. Roger Bassin

Did you know that over 60% of patients worry about the area below the chin? A contoured chin can contribute to a youthful-looking facial profile. However, excess fat cells underneath the chin—also known as “submental fat”—can result in a heavier appearance and a loss of definition around your jawline. Submental fullness can be caused by various factors, including genetics, aging, and weight gain.

This type of excess fat is often resistant to traditional diet and exercise—leaving many patients confused in their search for a long-term solution to regain youthful contours around the chin. Here at Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery in Florida, we are proud to offer the first FDA-approved double chin treatment: Kybella!

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is the world’s first minimally-invasive solution to excess chin fat. The Kybella injection offers long-lasting results without any stitching, scarring, or extensive downtime. Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid—a substance found in the body that eliminates submental fat cells. Results after undergoing Kybella treatment are long-lasting and can usually be seen within a few weeks and continue with additional treatments.

How Does My Kybella Procedure Work?

Kybella injections are delivered in as little as 20 minutes. Each treatment is spread out approximately a month apart to obtain the best results. You may undergo anywhere from 2-6 total injections during your overall treatment plan, depending on your individual needs and goals. Our Kybella doctors will sit down with you to create a customized course of action. There may be some initial bruising or swelling after your Kybella treatment; these side effects are normal and should subside after a few days.
