Double Chin Treatment

Our practice has been chosen to be the first provider in West Michigan to offer Kybella™ for double chin treatment.

Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved treatment that can reduce moderate to severe fat deposits under the chin, smoothing away your double chin without surgery. This liposuction alternative eliminates fat cells with deoxycholic acid, a natural compound found in the body that absorbs fat. The treatment itself takes only a few minutes, and can deliver excellent results in only 2 to 3 sessions.

Who are the best candidates for Kybella™

The best candidates for Kybella™ double chin treatment are men or women who are bothered by stubborn pockets of fat under the chin. While a double chin can be symptomatic of being overweight, many individuals without any history of weight problems feel that their appearance suffers due to their persistent double chin. Kybella is not effective for patiens with excess skin and muscle laxity under the chin. Kybella™ can also be used to fine-tune your liposuction results in the area beneath your chin.

How does Kybella™ work?

Kybella™ works by inserting tiny needles containing deoxycholic acid into the fat beneath your chin. Kybella™ permanently eliminates the fat cells. Once the aesthetic goal is achieved, re-treatment is not expected. Extensive clinical data supports Kybella™ safety and efficacy.

What to Expect

Prior to your Kybella™ treatment, you will have a detailed consultation with one of our board certified plastic surgeons to assess your needs. During this time, a physician will determine whether you may be a good candidate for Kybella™ and whether including additional procedures, if any, may produce the best cosmetic results. Your Kybella™ treatment session should only last about 15-20 minutes, and most patients see the best results after a series of 2 to 3 sessions spaced about a month apart. Kybella™ has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with Kybella™.  Results may vary.

What to expect after your Kybella™ treatment

Because Kybella™ is a minimally invasive treatment, the procedure requires little to no downtime. Most patients develop some swelling following their treatment, which is symptomatic of the destruction of fat cells. You may also experience some bruising or mild discomfort.

Can Kybella™ be used in other areas of the body?

Presently, Kybella™ is FDA-approved to be used only in the submental area directly below the chin. Studies are under way to assess the efficacy and safety of Kybella™ in other regions such as the belly and thighs.

How much does Kybella™ Cost?

The cost of each Kybella™ treatment depends on the size of the area being treated. On average, the price of each Kybella™ treatment session will range between $900 and $1500. Multiple treatment sessions are typically required to achieve best results.
