Kybella™ is a specialized injectable treatment designed to eliminate the double chin. At Keller Plastic Surgery, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory S. Keller and his team of specialists provide advanced treatments such as Kybella™ for residents of Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and nearby areas in Southern California.

What is Kybella™ used for?

Kybella™ is an FDA-approved dermal filler treatment that eliminates the condition known as a “double chin.”  Kybella™ minimizes submental fullness or the fatty deposits that accumulate under the chin and produce the “double chin” effect. Kybella™ is specially formulated to tighten and tone the chin and jaw area, imparting a firmer, more defined profile. Kybella™ is minimally invasive and requires no downtime.

How can Kybella™ improve my appearance?

Practically anyone who has a double chin wishes they didn’t have it. In fact, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery confirms that over 60 percent of Americans are unhappy with their double chin. Submental fullness or the “double chin” is a common problem in many adults that may cause embarrassment and affect an individual’s self-confidence. Luckily, Kybella™ is a safe and effective new treatment that eliminates submental fullness and gets rid of the double chin without surgery.

What contributes to a double chin?

While the double chin is a hereditary condition in many individuals, others develop submental fullness as a consequence of aging, and the condition becomes more pronounced as they age. Weight gain may also contribute to the development of a double chin. Genetic factors such as facial bone structure also contribute to the development of a double chin. When the double chin is caused by hereditary factors, no amount of diet or exercise will eliminate it, and only a cosmetic procedure can correct the condition.

What are the advantages of Kybella™ over other procedures?

Kybella™ is respected as the leading non-surgical treatment for correcting submental fullness due to its capacity to destroy fat, which is then eliminated naturally by the body.  Kybella™ is a far less invasive procedure than liposuction and safely destroys fat cells so your body can naturally eliminate them.

Who is considered an ideal candidate for Kybella™ injections?

Kybella™ is an ideal treatment for healthy adults who want to minimize or eliminate a double chin. Since Kybella™ is a non-invasive alternative to surgery, it is especially ideal for those individuals who cannot undergo surgery or those who prefer a minimally invasive treatment that requires no downtime.
