Kybella® injection is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as "double chin". The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Are you a candidate?
If you don’t want surgery and you’re unhappy, self-conscious, or embarrassed by fat under the chin or feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are, then KYBELLA® is a proven in office injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.
How is this treatment performed?
Dr. Gumucio will examine the area under and around your chin and then tailor the treatment to the amount of fat and your aesthetic goals.
At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. More than one session is usually needed for optimal results.
