How Many KYBELLA® Treatments For Stubborn Chin Fat?

Featured Image

While everyone has a small amount of fat just beneath their chin, some people struggle more than others. This unwanted fat is also called submental fullness. If you feel self-conscious about your facial features due to excess fat, KYBELLA chin injections may be able to help. Double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Jaimie DeRosa can reduce the fat under your chin for a slimmer appearance.

So, what is KYBELLA, and how many treatments are needed for double chin removal? This injectable is made from a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid (DA) to break down fat. When you schedule a chin assessment at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we can let you know how many sessions are needed to achieve your desired appearance. Reach out to our staff in Boston, MA to find out more.

What is KYBELLA?

Submental fullness can result in a double chin or asymmetrical face. So, what is KYBELLA? KYBELLA is a nonsurgical solution that targets and removes fat cells without invasive incisions. If you lead a busy life and are not interested in fat reduction surgery, this treatment is perfect for you! The deoxycholic acid breaks down and metabolizes fat naturally from the body. Once the fat cells are gone, they cannot grow back unless you experience future weight fluctuations. Benefits of KYBELLA include:

  • Minimally invasive

  • Fast and effective

  • Little to no downtime required

  • Youthful and slimming results

Candidates for double chin removal

Diet and exercise rarely target the stubborn fat beneath our chin or in the upper neck. KYBELLA is ideal for individuals who lead an overall healthy lifestyle and are within 10 – 15 pounds of their goal weight. During a consultation, Dr. DeRosa can determine whether you meet these requirements. As we mentioned, patients should maintain a consistent weight to avoid affecting their results. For larger amounts of fat in this area, we may suggest treatments for dramatic results, including a surgical neck liposuction or neck lift.

How many chin injections are needed

The number of KYBELLA chin injections needed depends on the amount of fat in the treatment area as well as your desired results. Some people require one injection for mild amounts of fat, while others should schedule several. Together with Dr. DeRosa, we can discuss the benefits of getting more than one KYBELLA treatment.

Before beginning KYBELLA, our office may apply a numbing solution to make you feel as comfortable as possible. We then clean and mark the treatment area for precise results. The entire procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes in our Boston, MA office. If you require multiple injections, we can schedule these sessions three weeks apart.
