All your life you’ve carried something with you. You see it every day in the mirror. It won’t sit still when you’re talking. And no matter what you do, it seems to be a permanent part of you. It’s your double chin.

Double chin, or submental fat, is unwanted fat under the chin that is difficult to get rid of with diet, exercise or weight loss. Reynolds Plastic Surgery is proud to offer Kybella®, a series of simple injections that target submental fat to improve the profile of your chin.

Who needs Kybella®?

Kybella® is for anyone who dislikes the appearance of their chin and jaw due to excess fat. If you feel that submental fat makes you look older, less attractive, or you would simply feel better without it, you are already a candidate for Kybella®.

The condition might bother you especially because your chin won’t go away even after weight loss. Sometimes your body wants to store fat under your chin and doesn’t ask for your permission to do so. Kybella® eliminates the fat where it is unwanted, no matter how stubborn your double chin is.

How does it work?

Kybella® is an injection of deoxycholic acid generally given in two to three treatments that are spaced at least a month apart. Deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body.

When injected under the chin, Kybella® permanently breaks down fat cells in the region, and your body’s natural metabolism clears the fat from the treatment area. It doesn’t matter if those cells were formed by weight gain or genetics, or both. The Kybella® injection enters the fat cells and eliminates them, leaving you with a slimmer profile.

Each session takes around 20 minutes and does not involve any downtime. You may experience slight redness, swelling, bruising or numbness after a treatment, but this naturally goes away.
