Submental fat is the tissue that can form under the chin and around the neck, the infamous “double chin.” Genetics, hormones, medications and aging can all cause a double chin, even when you are within a healthy body weight range. Slimming a double chin with facial injections can have a profound effect on the appearance of your face, jawline, chin and neck. At HMS Plastic Surgery, we offer Kybella® injections to eliminate the double chin at our clinic in Miami, FL.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a compound that is used to break down fat in the digestive system. When injected into the submental fat under the chin, it attacks the fat cells, destroying them. The fat from the cells is absorbed into the bloodstream but removed permanently from the treatment area. Kybella is FDA-approved for treatment of the double chin and removal of submental fat without surgery.

Non-Surgical Double Chin Treatment

Chin liposuction surgery can remove submental fat, but it is more invasive and requires more downtime. With Kybella injections, you can come in on your lunch break and receive your treatment, then go back to work. The most common side effects from Kybella are related to the injections, including swelling, redness or tenderness at the injection sites.

Kybella treatment for the double chin requires a series of injections to obtain the desired outcome. Patients will receive multiple injections each treatment, which are spaced at least one month apart. Depending on the amount of fat under the chin, it may require 4-6 treatments to remove the submental fat.

Over several months, the fat under the chin can disappear with Kybella injections, creating a more defined and attractive chin, jawline and profile. While the results are slower than liposuction, the chin and neck look natural, and the process is discreet.

Is a double chin distorting your facial appearance? Say goodbye to submental fat around your upper neck with Kybella injections. To find out if this treatment is right for you, contact HMS Plastic Surgery in the Fort Lauderdale and Miami, FL, area to schedule a Kybella consultation.

Dr. Harry Salinas is an absolutely amazing doctor! I am a petite woman and due to menopause, my breast became very large affecting my back, neck and shoulders. Dr. Salinas performed a breast reduction and breast lift surgeon. Dr. Salinas invested a significant amount of time explaining the procedure. He was incredibly accommodating as regards to my schedule. He and his staff were always available for prompt follow up on any questions. The results were far beyond my expectations. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the procedure. Dr. Salinas has changed my life! I highly recommend Dr. Salinas for his skill, professionalism, kindness and good heart!
