Kybella is a groundbreaking injectable that helps dissolve your stubborn double chin. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we offer the latest aesthetic innovations to help you look and feel your best. Kybella allows you to eliminate unwanted chin fat without surgery.

Eliminate Unwanted
Double Chin

Kybella is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment that targets and eliminates stubborn fat deposits beneath the chin, commonly known as a double chin. It’s FDA-approved and utilizes a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, to break down fat cells. This acid works by disrupting the cell membrane of fat cells, allowing your body to naturally metabolize and eliminate them. This leads to a more defined and sculpted jawline.

Kybella Treats:

  • Double chin (submental fat)
  • Excess fat under the chin
  • Lack of jawline definition

How Kybella Works

Kybella works through a process called adipolysis. It contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the body. When injected into the target area, Kybella disrupts the integrity of fat cell membranes. This causes the fat cells to release their contents into the surrounding tissue. The body’s metabolic processes kick in, gradually clearing away the released fat. Over time, this leads to a reduction in localized fat deposits, resulting in a more sculpted and defined appearance.

Advantages of Kybella:

  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive
  • Effective in reducing submental fat (double chin)
  • Minimal downtime compared to surgery
  • Gradual, natural-looking results
  • Permanent fat reduction
  • Customizable treatment plans
  • No general anesthesia required
  • Fewer risks and complications compared to surgery

Kybella Treatment in Hampton Roads

Your Kybella treatment begins with a consultation where we discuss your specific goals and assess your suitability for the procedure. The procedure starts with the application of a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. Kybella is precisely injected into the targeted areas under your chin using a fine needle. The number of injections and the amount of Kybella used will depend on your individual needs and the desired outcome. The procedure is relatively quick and usually takes around 15-20 minutes.

After the injections, you might experience some swelling, bruising, or mild discomfort, which is entirely normal and temporary. You can resume your daily activities within a day or two. Over the following weeks, Kybella breaks down the fat cells in the treated area. Your body will gradually metabolize and eliminate these fat cells, revealing a more contoured jawline. Most individuals require 3 to 6 sessions spaced a month apart for optimal results. The final results are long-lasting and permanent, especially if you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
