While Kybella® is FDA approved for reducing double chins, it is also commonly used by experienced injectors to treat small, isolated pockets of fat elsewhere on the body.
The overall cost of a Kybella® treatment depends on the number of injection sessions required to achieve ideal results, as well as other details. All of this can be discussed with Sood Center’s team at your consultation.
You will first discuss your expectations, learn about the double chin reduction process, and determine the best course of treatment during your initial consultation with our team.
For the treatment itself, your face will be cleansed in advance, and a topical anaesthetic can be applied if desired for enhanced comfort during the treatment process. Each injection is carefully made into the fat under your chin—or elsewhere—using a fine needle. This process usually lasts between 15 to 20 minutes.
Temporary swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin may develop. You will receive aftercare instructions to help improve comfort and optimal results. The effects typically appear after two to four treatment sessions, spaced at least one month apart. Remember that patience is a virtue, as the final results can take up to six months to fully set in!
The number of necessary treatments varies, usually ranging from two to six sessions, depending on the amount of chin fat present, your desired outcome, and other factors.
The beauty of Kybella® is that once the fat cells are broken down, they’re gone for good! The remaining fat cells can grow larger if given the opportunity, so the best way to enjoy a profile that lacks a double chin is to maintain healthy lifestyle habits, including diet and exercise.
Kybella® is generally safe for most adults who are bothered by the look of their submental fat. However, individuals with certain health conditions may be better served with a different treatment option. A detailed consultation will help ensure we take the best approach.
