Genetic factors can result in redundant tissue of the neck, known as the medical term “buccula” or the lay term, “double chin.” Kybella® is an injected medicine that dissolves the fat under the chin for the long term. Since there is no cutting of the skin, there should be no surface scarring. Kybella™ is administered as a series of treatments for success.
Kybella® is only performed by health care professionals trained in its use. After treatment, there can be marked swelling of the area for a few days. Though rare, other complications are possible, including nerve damage in the area of the jaw, skin sores, bruising, localized hair loss and discoloration.
In our office, all consultations and treatments are performed by experienced dermatology providers. Their years of training and aesthetic skills combine to achieve consistent natural-appearing results.
