Loose the Double Chin with Kybella ™
If you are among the thousands of people who are bothered by double chin or Submental fullness and don’t want surgery, Kybella ™ may be right for you. Submental fullness is fat under-the-chin.
What is Kybella ™
Kybella ™ is a simple non-surgical & non-invasive series of injections to dissolve fat under the chin or with no downtime. It is the first injectable substance FDA approved for the treatment of double chin.
Kybella™ injections disrupt the fat cell membrane which causes the fat to break apart. Within a few weeks, the body reabsorbs the contents of the fat cells leaving a slimmer well defined jawline. Kybella™ is now available to our patients at Georgia Plastic!
Why do I have a double chin or Submental fullness ?
There are many causes of double chin in both men and women. The most common causes of double chin are aging, genetics and weight gain. In a recent survey, 68% of people were bothered by double chin. Sometimes submental fullnees does not go away with diet and exercise. Patient who were treated with Kybella™ reported improvement in self-perception, including feeling happier and younger based on their chin profile, as well as feeling less embarrassed, less self-conscious, and less overweight.

How many treatments will I need?
We recommend a series of 3-6 treatments with Kybella™. The treatments are given once a month. You may experience swelling and tenderness after each treatment for a few days while the body breaks down and absorbs the fat cells
How does it work?
Kybella™ is a non human and non animal formulation of Deoxycholic acid, a naturally occuring molecule in the body that aides in the breakdown and absorbtion of dietery fat. Once injected under the chin, Kybella™ destroys fat cells. Once destroyed by Kybella™, those cells can longer store or accumulate fat. You will notice a better jaw line in the months that follow Kybella™ treatment. No surgery, no downtime, and no double chin!
