Working with the dermatologist to combat the "double chin"When exercise and dieting have not been successful for removing stubborn fat in the chin area, Kybella may be ideal. Kybella is a non-surgical solution for reducing moderate to severe fat deposits on the upper neck. Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Kybella is injected into fat deposits beneath the chin. Its ingredients destroy fat cells, so they are no longer able to store or accumulate fat. The result is reduced submental fullness, a more youthful looking appearance, and a beautifully contoured chin.
Determining if Kybella is right for youTo explore treatment, we recommend scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Downie. She will examine your face and review your medical history. It is important to tell her about medications you take, including vitamins and herbal supplements. Dr. Downie will tailor a treatment plan that meets your needs, including the recommended number of sessions to achieve your goals.
Many patients experience results in two to four treatment sessions, which are at least a month apart. There may be six treatment sessions before achieving desired results. A treatment session typically lasts 15 to 20 minutes and results are long lasting. After the desired aesthetic is achieved, further treatments will not be necessary. In contrast to surgery, there is minimal downtime.
According to Kybella clinical studies, patients reported improvement in self-perception, including feeling happier and younger based on their chin profiles. They also reported feeling less embarrassed and less self-conscious after Kybella treatment.

It is an injectable fat melting drug which was FDA approved several years ago, which I did clinical trials for. "It is used on label under the chin to melt fat and takes about 4-8 treatment sessions to see results.
I do call it Liposuction in a needle because it is fabulous and there's no down time and with actual liposuction, you get fabulous consistent results.
" In our clinical practice off label we use kybella on,
- Bra line
- Inner thighs
- The back
Kybella basically beats up and fights the fat cells, blowing them up, treating them and starting the process of getting rid of them. People may swell for about two weeks after each Kybella treatment.
Kybella treatment can be done during all four seasons.
When the treatment is done during the summer, patients are told that they can ice up and walk out with a T-shirt on. During the winter they can hide it with a turtleneck. Stubborn fat pockets would not go without Kybella treatment. Kybella can be used on jaws, which is really a popular area. It can swell up and bruise a little bit. But patients seem so happy and content with what they look like after the treatment.
I do have patients come into my office who want more than one area treated at a time. Kybella comes via the vial, so we decide how much we are doing and go from there. Ice is given to each patient on their way out of the practice and typically one month follow ups are scheduled with each patient." "It takes a minimum of 4-8 treatment sessions depending on the size of the area being treated. This has been personally used by myself on my inner thighs and now I look better in jeans, clothes and feel more confident, which I failed to accomplish even after running 25 miles per week. Now with kybella I'm looking and feeling better.
This is an age defined world and people want to look good. Hence, among numerous treatment methods, we recommend Kybella, Fillers, Botox and Non Invasive Fat Melting therapy for an appealing look. "
