Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery is pleased to be one of the first in the country to offer Kybella™, a break-through, non-surgical treatment for chin fat or “double chin.” Kybella is an injectable drug that works by dissolving fat under the jawline in to reduce the appearance of a double chin. This FDA-approved breakthrough procedure is now available in our office to help you achieve a more sculpted, youthful contour — in as little as 2 treatments. Kybella can help you achieve similar results to liposuction without surgery and with little to no downtime.
- KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid), also known as ATX-101, is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of a “double chin.”
- Treatment with KYBELLA™ is customized by Dr. Davis to meet your aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile.
How Kybella™ Works
Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected in the chin area, Kybella destroys fat cells without harming other skin cells in the area.
Patients can expect to have 2 to 6 injection treatments performed, each a month apart. Some patients notice results in as little as 2 to 3 treatments.
What Happens During Kybella™ Treatment
Before your Kybella treatment, Dr. Davis will apply a numbing solution to your neck and chin. He will then place a grid on your skin that will guide each injection he makes. To perform the actual procedure, Dr. Davis will make 12 to 20 injections into the prepared area. You can expect the actual treatment to take only about 15 minutes. While mild swelling is normal, most patients report no other side effects and very little pain. Little to no downtime is required and 79% of patients report high satisfaction with results in clinical trials.
