What Is KYBELLA™?

What is Kybella?Are you bothered by submental fullness – also known as a “double chin” – that won’t seem to go away despite eating a nutritious diet and spending long hours at the gym? Don’t worry; you’re not alone. No matter how healthy a lifestyle they lead, many women and men find that accumulations of fat underneath the chin remain resistant to change. The good news is, there’s now a nonsurgical, minimally invasive technique for reducing submental fat that can help you achieve a slimmer, more toned under-chin profile without the recovery and/or downtime often associated with surgical procedures. This revolutionary treatment is called KYBELLA™.

Performed in-office by Dr. Braithwaite or Dr. Cobbins, KYBELLA™ is an innovative injectable designed to eliminate localized pockets of fat underneath the chin and/or along the jawline. Once administered, 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. And the best part? The effects of KYBELLA™ have been known to be extremely long-lasting, if not permanent, for those who maintain a relatively healthy lifestyle following treatment.

If you are interested in submental fat reduction, we encourage you to visit our page on KYBELLA™ to learn more about this advanced technique, or contact our practice today to schedule a consultation with one of our board certified plastic surgeons.
