When we think of excess fat on our bodies, we immediately think of our stomach, butt and legs. And when we want to get rid of that fat, we have treatments like liposuction to use. However, fat gathers in other parts of our body as well, like the chin.
Having a double chin is one of the most annoying facial issues to have. It’s unwanted fat on our face that we can’t seem to get rid of. There isn’t a diet that targets under the chin, and invasive procedures like liposuction won’t work for an area that small. Fortunately for those who suffer from a double chin, there is Kybella®.
Kybella® is an FDA approved injection that’s been proven to reduce the fat located underneath the chin in a safe and effective way. If you’ve been looking for a way to get rid of your double chin, call our Orlando office to schedule your Kybella® consultation.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the combination of a dermal filler and a fat reducer. Its primary goal is to target and get rid of the fat cells located underneath your chin, and it does this in a series of injections.
How Does it Work?
The key ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body and it’s used for the absorption and removal of fat. Injecting a concentrated formula of this element directly into the fat below the chin directly results in the fat being broken down and eliminated.
What’s even better is that once the fat has been destroyed and removed, the original cells can’t store or accumulate fat anymore; meaning that treatment is needed only once. It’s up to you and a member of our medical team to determine exactly how many treatments are needed before you reach your goal. Most patients use between 3 and 6 appointments before their goal is reached.

What’s the Treatment Like?
All of your treatments will happen within our offices and shouldn’t take more than an hour or two to complete. They begin with the application of a topical numbing cream. This is intended to keep pain to an absolute minimum and ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Once the cream has gone into effect, most patients describe the pain felt during treatment as some slight pressure and something like a bug’s bite.
Once treatment is completed, you may experience some lasting tingling or stinging from the procedure. Your chin may look red, swell and be sensitive to the touch for a couple days. These effects are minimal and should only last a short period of time.
It’s important to maintain the health of your skin between appointments. This includes wearing sunscreen whenever possible and avoiding the use of makeup in the days after the procedure. A member of our medical team will go over all aspects of maintenance between appointments.
Don’t let sagging skin around your chin bring you down, fight back with Kybella®. Call our Orlando office for your consultation today.
