My visit with this office was amazing. They were very competent, very nice and very knowledgeable. I will definitely be back...
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
Are you bothered by the fullness of your chin? What causes submental fullness?
Submental fullness due to fat beneath the chin can impact a broad range of both male and female adults. Some possible causes are aging, weight gain, and genetics.
How does KYBELLA® work?
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
During your consultation, Dr. Tisdall or Dr. Miller will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Up to 6 treatments may be administered, spaced no less than 1 month apart.
How is KYBELLA® administered?
KYBELLA® is given during an in-office visit. The injection process may take 15 to 20 minutes. Dr. Miller or Dr. Tisdall will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session.
What can I expect after my treatment session?
For most patients, downtime occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities, but are likely to have swelling, so keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed.
KYBELLA® may be right for you if:
* You’re bothered by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
* You don’t want surgery
* You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
* You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
