Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that improves moderate to sever fat below the chin. Noticeable results can be seen in as few as a couple of office visits.
Dr. Wells continues to recommend liposuction as a more effective, permanent and more cost-effective treatment for sub-mental fullness. However, if a patient is still interested in a non-surgical option, Kybella is there for you. This fullness can often be the result of aging, weight gain or genetics.
According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):
- 68% of people said they’re bothered by their double chin
- People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes
The most common temporary side effects include:
- Mild discomfort
- Temporary numbness
- Areas of hardness in the treatment area
