Kybella In Atlanta, Ga
If a double chin is preventing you from loving your profile, there are options available to correct it without committing to going under the knife. Injectable solutions that permanently eradicate the unwanted fat, like Kybella, are quick and relatively painless methods of streamlining and contouring the chin and jawline area. This nonsurgical procedure effectively eliminates the fat for a slimmer chin and a more defined jawline and neck.
Fat under the chin, also known as submental fat, may be due to genetics, aging, weight gain, or your body’s natural inclination to store fat in the area. Regardless of your diet and how much you work out, this is one area of the body that is slow to respond to dietary and exercise efforts, if it responds at all.
Kybella injections are one of the most effective ways to improve the profile, chin, and jawline area without engaging in plastic surgery.
Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David B. Brothers, the Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta offers tummy tuck surgery for Sandy Springs, Decatur, Duluth, and the surrounding areas.
What is Kybella®
Kybella is the first-of-its-kind injectable fat erasing treatment explicitly designed for unwanted fat under the chin. The only FDA-approved injectable treatment for erasing the double chin and fat in the area, Kybella is a downtime-free, nonsurgical solution for both men and women who do not want or need surgery, like liposuction or a neck lift.
The treatment, which requires multiple sessions depending on the amount of submental fat under the chin, uses the body’s natural processes to seamlessly melt away the fat, which will never return to the area.
Unlike other procedures and treatments that tighten the skin or stimulate collagen production for added firmness, Kybella only targets fat. If loose or redundant skin is an issue, Dr. Brothers may recommend additional procedures to create a tighter jawline for total improvement. However, most patients are satisfied with the results of Kybella alone.
How Does Kybella® WORK?
Kybella uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Yet, when deoxycholic acid is injected strategically in fat pockets directly under the chin, it works to break down the fat. The quick procedure–it takes about 20-minutes or so from start to finish–causes the fat cells to burst open, permanently destroy them, and then be absorbed by the body. Once absorbed, the body safely expels the fat cells through natural processes.
Most patients require a series of treatments to get rid of unwanted fat under the chin fully. With each treatment, which should be spaced about one month apart, it is normal to experience some side effects, like bruising, swelling, redness, and even mild numbness during the first few days after the procedure. However, as time goes by and the area begins to resolve on its own, the side effects will minimize, too.
THE KYBELLA® EXPERIENCE
A series of Kybella injections are performed in multiple sessions to erase unwanted fat under the chin and create more definition. Each session is administered the same by Dr. Brothers and his team.
During each injection session (anywhere from two to six are necessary), the experience will be the same. First, a series of multiple injections are administered into the fat underneath the chin. The amount of fat in the area will determine the number of injections needed. During the injection process, you will feel mild burning and a stinging sensation that soon dissipates.
While the results are not instantaneous–they are gradual–you and Dr.Brothers should devise a treatment plan to reach your personal goals. During a consultation with Dr. Brothers, he will discuss the treatment details and the number of treatments necessary since everyone’s chin area and concerns are different.
Once your goal is met, the results will remain indefinitely, and no further treatment is required.
WHO IS KYBELLA® GOOD FOR?
Kybella works best for those with minimal to moderate submental fat and wishes to improve the area’s look under the chin and the jawline and profile.
It is also an excellent non-invasive option for those bothered by fat under the chin or who feel that the excess fat under the chin makes them look older or heavier than they are.
The injectable treatment is an excellent alternative to surgery and is often a top treatment of choice for those who are not ready or willing to undergo surgery.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR KYBELLA®?
The primary consideration for being a candidate for Kybella treatments is the elasticity of your skin. Without enough elasticity, your skin will hang loosely under your chin once the fat disappears. Another factor is the location of the fat, which should be between the bottom of the chin and the top of the neck. Kybella is also not recommended for men and women who have muscular banding on their necks.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE HAVING KYBELLA®?
Before treatment, there isn’t much to do to prepare other than setting up a consultation with Dr. Brothers. Dr. Brothers is uniquely qualified to perform Kybella® treatments and achieve optimum outcomes.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON THE DAY OF MY KYBELLA® TREATMENT?
Dr. Brothers and our medical aestheticians are trained in the administration of Kybella®. Multiple injections are made along with the fat under the chin using a fine gauge needle. You may feel a slight pinch followed by mild pressure and a brief stinging or slight burning sensation as the product is injected into the soft tissue.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO ADMINISTER KYBELLA®?
Each treatment with Kybella® takes less than 30 minutes.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER KYBELLA®?
You may have some minor tenderness, swelling, and bruising around the injection sites for the first few days. However, you will see a gradual reduction in the submental fat after each treatment. The more treatments that are done to reach your personal goal, the better the result.
WILL I HAVE SCARS AFTER GETTING KYBELLA®?
Kybella® is an injectable product that produces absolutely no scars.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
Clinical studies show that patients have the best results with Kybella® when they receive six treatments that are scheduled at one-month intervals. During the four weeks between treatments, you will see a reduction in fat.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS OF KYBELLA® LAST?
The results of Kybella® treatments are permanent because the active ingredient in the product destroys the fat cells. Your jowls and neck may still develop other signs of aging, though.
