Smooth & Tighten Under Your Chin for a Better Profile
Many people develop a deposit of skin and fatty tissue beneath the chin as a result of age, weight, or genetics. This deposit, known as submental fullness, can make you look older and heavier than you are. If you are bothered by the fullness beneath your chin, our San Francisco plastic surgeon may recommend KYBELLA®. This is an injectable prescription medication that can improve the facial profile and contour by reducing the submental fat, or the deposit of fatty tissue that creates a “double chin.” It is the only FDA-approved injectable to address submental fullness in adults.
If you have submental fullness that proper diet and exercise cannot reduce, then KYBELLA® may be the treatment for you. KYBELLA® contains deoxycholic acid, a molecule found naturally in the body that aids in the absorption of dietary fat. When injected under the chin, KYBELLA® can destroy fat cells and prevent them from ever accumulating fat again. Any fat cleared from the treated area will be naturally processed through your body’s metabolism.
KYBELLA® is administered during an in-office visit, and may last 15 to 20 minutes. As no incisions need to be made, most patients can resume their daily activities, although some swelling may occur. Dr. Randall B. Weil will determine how many treatment sessions are required based on your submental fullness and your personal goals. Typically, 6 treatments are required, no less than a month apart for each.
