Kybella® Injections to Eliminate Your Double Chin

No one needs more than one chin. When submental fat, whether genetic or not, supplies you with another one, it can make you feel self-conscious. Creative Facial Aesthetics offers a solution to the double chin problem. Those unwanted fat deposits can be removed with Kybella® treatments. This non-surgical option for reducing the appearance of fat under your chin produces a slim, attractive jawline.

The ingredients in Kybella dissolve fat by breaking down fat cells, which are then re-absorbed back into the body. This treatment is very effective for removing those small pockets of fat that form beneath the chin. Even individuals who are physically fit can develop these patches of fat. Kybella is the first and only treatment of its kind available to remove subcutaneous fat without surgery.

Eliminating Unwanted Chin Fat

Kybella treatments consist of a series of injections with a fine needle in the targeted area. Treatments proceed over the course of a few months. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat needing removal. Each treatment takes 20 minutes or less, depending on how many injections are needed.

Kybella works by using a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid to dissolve fat cells. Deoxycholic acid is a salt in human bile that aids in fat digestion. In the natural state, this acid breaks down fat cells in the digestive tract by destroying the cell membrane. The synthetic version does the same thing in targeted locations when injected into the subcutaneous fat under the chin.

When the fat cells are destroyed, the cellular debris is eliminated through the lymphatic and circulatory systems via specialized immunologic cells. This gradual process takes several weeks to reach completion. The deoxycholic acid is metabolized, broken down and excreted as waste.

Results from Kybella treatments may not be seen until after two to four treatments. However, once the fat has been eliminated, it is gone. The fat cells in that area are destroyed so they do not return. In that way, eliminating chin fat with Kybella is permanent.

Safe and Effective

Kybella was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in 2015. Clinical trials have shown Kybella to be safe and effective. Over 80% of the clinical trial participants reported significant improved satisfaction with their appearance after receiving treatment.

This non-surgical procedure produces the look you want without the discomfort and downtime needed for surgery. No incisions are necessary, only small injections. Most people have minimal downtime with Kybella treatments.

Common side effects associated with treatment include pain, swelling, bruising, redness and numbness in the treatment area. Downtime varies from patient to patient, and most side effects resolve within a week or two. Any discomfort you feel after treatment should be brought to your doctor’s attention.

Serious side effects seldom occur, but if you experience any of them, they should be reported to your doctor immediately. These include facial muscle weakness, nerve injury in the jaw, an uneven smile and trouble swallowing.

The Best Treatment for Eliminating the Double Chin

Kybella treatments are undoubtably the best non-surgical option for removing the fat deposits under your chin. With proper treatment, your results will be a well-defined jawline and a more youthful neck and profile.

It is important to have a well-trained professional administer your Kybella injections. Deoxycholic acid can destroy other cells in the process, so it is crucial that the procedure are done by someone who is experienced. Michele Rivard, PA and Dr. Khosh, are both highly qualified to use Kybella. With their experience and knowledge, you can rest assured that you will have outstanding results with treatment.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
