If you are bothered by a double chin, I have great news. Now there is a highly effective non-surgical answer, Kybella™. Kybella™ is a new manufactured injection that melts fat.  Kybella™ is the 1st and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental (under the chin) fullness.
The injection of Kybella™ melts the fat, gradually reducing the volume of fat and gently tightening the skin.  This is an in office procedure.  It’s take only 15-20 minutes. Sometimes you may need more than 1 treatment to accomplish the optimum results. —-The procedure is quick and easy with minimal risks.

Common Side Effects of Kybella™

The most common side effects of Kybella™ include: swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.  In rare cases Kybella™ can cause serious side effects including trouble swallowing and  temporary nerve injury in the jaw that appears as an uneven smile or facial weakness.  Both of these concerns are not permanent. There is a moderate amount of swelling that can take 7-10 days to resolve. Most patients can return to work within several days or sooner. If more than one treatment is needed, they are scheduled at least 6 weeks apart.
