KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.
Submental Fullness, also known as “double chin” is a common concern for both men and women. Possible causes include genetics, weight gain and aging. Sometimes, even with diet or exercise, the unwanted fullness beneath the chin may not go away, and can cause a person to appear older or heavier than they actually are. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® physically destroys fat cells, making them unable to accumulate or store fat.1
Dr. Goodman will determine how many treatment sessions you will need based on the amount and distribution of the submental fat and personal treatment goals. Up to six treatments may be administered, spaced no less than one month apart.
For most patients, downtime occurred most commonly after the first treatment session and is minimal. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities, but are likely to have swelling, so keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment
