Considering Kybella To Get Rid of Your Double Chin?

Olansky Dermatology Associates logo

Do you dread looking at pictures of yourself due to your “double chin” appearance? If you’re not willing to undergo plastic surgery to remove this stubborn chin fat, you now have a favorable alternative. Using Kybella injections, patients can permanently say goodbye to their double chin and gain a contoured, youthful profile without every going under the knife.

Kybella is one of the latest products on the market. In the hands of a skilled physician, the procedure is simple and the results amazing. Kybella is specifically designed for reducing submental fat, or the fatty area that people often call a “double chin” in the middle of the neck and just below the chin. If you are considering Kybella injections, here are some questions and answers that may interest you:

Who is an ideal candidate for Kybella?
Kybella works best for those with mild to moderate submental fat. Younger patients with good skin elasticity often see the best results. In addition, it is ideal for those that want to get rid of their double chin without the risks, cost and downtime associated with plastic surgery.
Is Kybella safe?
Yes, Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved treatment available for reducing chin fat.
How does Kybella eliminate chin fat without surgery?
Kybella is the brand name of deoxycholic acid. This is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring molecule within your body that is responsible for aiding in metabolizing fat. By injecting this acid in the area of excess chin fat, the fat cells are attacked and permanently destroyed.
How long does one treatment session last?
Your Kybella treatment is very brief and does not require special preparations. In general, the injections can be performed in 30 minutes or less, including the time it takes to apply the topical numbing cream.
What is the recovery like for Kybella?
It is common to experience minor swelling for the first few days or more. You may also see some mild bruising or feel slight numbness in the area. Again, these are only temporary side effects. Kybella allows patients to resume normal activities very quickly.
What if I have excess fat as well as excess skin under my chin?
In patients who have excess chin fat as well as loose or sagging skin under the chin, a neck lift or facelift procedure may be more beneficial. Kybella targets and destroys the fat cells but cannot address excess skin.
How many Kybella treatments will I need to see results?
Most patients need between 2 and 4 treatment sessions to achieve ideal results.
Treatments just need to be spaced at least 4 to 6 weeks apart.
How long do Kybella results last?
Kybella is a revolutionary injection therapy that delivers permanent results! Essentially, the fat cells in this submental area are prohibited from ever storing fat again. While Kybella is new on the market, the past 4 to 5 years of clinical trials have revealed sustainable results thus far.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
