Excess fat under the chin, medically referred to as submental fullness, is a common concern for many people. A “double chin” can develop as a result of genetic predisposition, weight gain, hormonal fluctuation, or other factors. In many cases, diet and exercise offer limited improvement or no improvement at all. Fortunately, there is a non-surgical treatment option now available from Dr. Jeffrey Hunt and our skilled practitioners, Kristen Thornley, ARNP. *KYBELLA™ is an innovative, FDA-approved injectable technique to replace submental liposuction that will be able to help you achieve a more contoured profile. *This innovative treatment can be completed in the office, does not require extensive downtime, and can lead to exceptionally long-lasting results in most patients.

Benefits of KYBELLA™
KYBELLA™ is the first and only injectable approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to reduce the appearance of double chin. Designed to diminish excess fat cells under the chin, this technique can be an excellent option for many patients who have struggled in their attempts to address the problem through traditional means. The procedure typically takes around 15 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated, and can be performed in the comfort of our practice. Our experienced nurse will develop a customized treatment plan based on your unique needs and expressed goals. KYBELLA™ can significantly reduce excess fat under the chin and in the upper part of the neck with results that beautifully enhance your profile.
The KYBELLA™ Procedure
When you arrive for your initial consultation, one of our highly skilled practitioners will examine the areas of concern and create a treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals. KYBELLA™ will be delivered into targeted areas of the chin area through a series of precise injections. The solution is composed of a molecule (deoxycholic acid) that is natural to the human body. This molecule typically works to break down dietary fat. As part of the KYBELLA™ solution, it targets excess fat cells under the chin and destroys them. The fat cells will exit the body through natural processes over time.
Patients typically report little pain during the procedure, and the treatment areas can be numbed to minimize discomfort. *While a single session may be sufficient to provide the desired results, some patients may need up to four once-monthly treatments to optimize the effects. *When the treatments are complete, the fatty tissue affected by KYBELLA™ should be dissolved.
KYBELLA™ is indicated for individuals 18 years of age or older, who are in good general health, and who desire treatment for a double chin. Our practitioners will determine if this method can help you attain your cosmetic goals during your initial consultation. Should you desire more extensive aesthetic enhancement, we also offer a comprehensive range of non-surgical facial rejuvenation options.
Most patients return to normal activity within one to two days of KYBELLA™ treatment, and some are able to resume their daily routines the same day. Some tenderness, bruising, mild numbness, and swelling may be present following treatment, but these effects should subside over the next few days. Your results will be gradual and should look natural. Comfort, safety, and successful outcomes are our primary concerns, and we will strive to make your experience exceptional from start to finish.
