Kybella® Tallahassee


Bye-Bye Double Chin

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults that reduces fullness under the chin by destroying fat cells in the treatment area. KYBELLA® is administered over a series of sessions
tailored just for you to improve your profile.

What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.

How does KYBELLA® work?

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

Is KYBELLA® right for me?

Only you and your doctor can decide if KYBELLA® is right for you. If you’re bothered by submental fullness, or double chin, ask your doctor about KYBELLA®.

How many treatments will I need?

You and your doctor will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, your HCP will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.

How long will the results last?

When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA® is not expected.

Whether you have a moderate amount of fat under your chin—or a bit more— to find out if KYBELLA® is right for you please call Southeastern Plastic Surgery, P.A. located in Tallahassee, FL at 850-219-2000 or schedule an appointment online for a private consultation or appointment with Kristen Snyder Costa, PA-C, our expert injector.
