Overview

The unsightly double chin can be diminished without invasive surgery with Kybella, an injectable treatment, which targets moderate to severe chin fat. Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin of Oklahoma City inject Kybella into the excessive fat under the chin, which works by destroying the fat cells. Kybella can be administered in a 15-20 minute session with no downtime. Since multiple treatments are needed, the doctors will work with the patient to develop a customized course of treatment to achieve maximum results. After treatment is complete, the double chin is minimized, and the area is more contoured and slimmer looking.

Procedure Technique

Kybella is an alternative to surgical neck liposuction for patients who only need fat removed from the area under their chin. If the patient wants fat removed from the rest of the neck, surgical neck liposuction is the best option. The doctor will help every patient determine their best treatment plan after listening to their concerns and goals in the initial consultation.

Before/After The Procedure

After cleaning the area, the doctor will inject Kybella into multiple sites under the patient’s chin. Most patients will begin to see visible results in 2 – 4 treatment sessions. Patients can have up to 6 treatment sessions with less than a month in between each session. After the treatment, patients may have temporary swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, or redness.

Surgical Neck Liposuction

Kybella is an alternative to surgical neck liposuction for patients who only need fat removed from the area under their chin. If the patient wants fat removed from the rest of the neck, surgical neck liposuction is the best option. The doctor will help every patient determine their best treatment plan after listening to their concerns and goals in the initial consultation.

Kybella FAQs

Other Areas?

While it is being researched, Kybella is not currently approved to eliminate fat in any other areas of the body and a plastic surgeon will only inject Kybella into the area below the patient’s chin. The uses of Kybella will hopefully be expanded, but for now, patient can enjoy getting rid of their double chin with Kybella.

Restrictions?

Before receiving Kybella injections, the doctor will ask about the patient’s current medications and medical conditions during their initial consultation. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not get Kybella injections. Kybella is also not available for anyone under the age of 18.

How It Works?

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is a naturally-occurring molecule that can be by the body to breakdown and destroy fat. Once destroyed, these fat cells cannot return.
