Bothered by your double chin? You aren’t alone! The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery study in 2015 found that:
- 67% of people said they’re bothered by double chin or fullness under the chin
- People are just as bothered by a double chin as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes
The procedure typically lasts about 30 minutse and there is little to no downtime. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediatly.
Frequently Asked Questions about KYBELLA
Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in KYBELLA®. It is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.* With KYBELLA® Deoxycholic acid is injected in the the fat below the chin and breaks those fat cells down. Once removed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.*
Some patients may experience some swelling, bruising, numbness, or pain around the treatment area.* Feel free to call us and we will answer any questions you may have!
Depending on what chin profile you desire, Dr. Pittman can tailor a treatment regiment that’s right for you. Most patients notice visible results in 1-3 treatments but you can receive up to 6 treatments.*
Once fat cells are removed, they cannot store or accumulate fat so retreatment of KYBELLA® is not expected. *
