Double Chin Reduction

Kybella® double chin reduction in Highland Park

A double chin can make you appear older than you are.

Excess fat beneath the chin is a nuisance to some, and may be an embarrassing feature for others. Previously, surgery was required via facial liposuction to remove this “submental” fat.

Kybella is administered using a specialized technique, where the skin under your chin is marked with a grid pattern. Small needles are then used to inject the area targeting the fat cells. This causes a localized inflammatory reaction, which leads to fat reabsorption and skin tightening. Common adverse reactions include swelling, bruising, and numbness. While we may recommend up to 6 treatment sessions (spaced 1 month apart), many patients notice results after 2 to 4 sessions.
