The Aesthetic Institute of Chicago Now Offers KYBELLA for Double Chin Reduction

Dr. Lorri Cobbins and Dr. Brian Braithwaite introduce KYBELLA.

Chicago plastic surgeons Brian Braithwaite, MD and Lorri Cobbins, MD now provide non-surgical KYBELLA treatments for individuals interested in reducing submental fullness.

Chicago, IL — Submental fullness is a common aesthetic concern experienced by men and women alike, says Dr. Brian Braithwaite, a board plastic surgeon in Chicago. Sometimes referred to as a “double chin,” he continues, this localized buildup of fatty tissue can often prove to be resistant to diet, exercise, and an overall healthy lifestyle. To help patients combat the accumulation of fat beneath the chin without the need for surgical intervention, Dr. Braithwaite and his colleague, Dr. Lorri Cobbins, now offer KYBELLA™ – a minimally invasive injectable treatment designed to reduce submental fullness with natural-looking, long-lasting results.

According to a recent blog post on the Chicago plastic surgeons’ website, KYBELLA™ is a non-surgical alternative to neck liposuction that can be performed in-office with little to no discomfort or downtime. “Once administered,” states the blog entry, “the deoxycholic acid-based formula works to gradually break apart and destroy fat cells in the targeted region, eventually producing a leaner, more sculpted under-chin contour.” Additional benefits of KYBELLA™ include:


  • Improved definition below the chin and along the jawline
  • No need for incisions and/or surgery of any sort
  • Normal activities can often be resumed after one to two days, if not immediately
  • Long-lasting, possibly permanent, results

Ultimately, Dr. Cobbins notes that despite its non-surgical, minimally invasive nature, KYBELLA™ should be performed only for qualified patients by an experienced and credentialed physician. For this reason, she recommends anyone interested in double chin reduction seek the expertise of a board certified plastic surgeon who is skilled in multiple fat removal techniques to help ensure the safest, most effective treatment is performed.
