For many people, having a double chin can be a source of poor self-image and a lack of confidence. A double chin is the result of the accumulation of stubborn, submental fat that resides beneath the chin. Some people try to deal with this issue by committing to a workout routine and diet plan, but the fat cannot always be removed with these methods alone.

If you have stubborn fat underneath your chin that is giving you the appearance of a double chin, you may be interested in trying Kybella. Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that can eliminate your double chin and give you a sleeker and more defined chin and jawline. Balikian Facial Plastic Surgery offers Kybella injections for men and women who are struggling to get rid of their double chin.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment that is specifically designed to target submental fat. Submental fat refers to the fat that gathers underneath the chin and jawline. It can diminish the definition of the chin and jaw and create the appearance of a double chin. Some people are genetically predisposed to accumulating submental fat more easily than others and struggle to get rid of fat underneath the chin even if they exercise and adhere to a strict diet.

What To Expect During Your Kybella Treatment?

Kybella is a simple treatment process that can be performed on an outpatient basis. Before starting treatment, we will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals. We’ll inject the Kybella solution to the designated treatment area and you can return to your normal daily schedule without any issues.

How Is Kybella Administered?

During your Kybella treatment at Balikian Facial Plastic Surgery, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin in one treatment session. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. The injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

How Many Kybella Treatment Sessions Will I Need?

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Our team will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each Kybella treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.

What is the cost of Kybella?

badgeThe cost of your Kybella treatment will depend on the number of treatment sessions needed to attain your desired results. Our skilled team will perform an assessment of your facial profile to help determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. After we have determined the ideal treatment plan for you, we’ll discuss the associated cost.
