Submental fullness is a term used to describe what is more commonly known as a “double chin.” If you would like to feel more confident in your profile, our Newport Beach Kybella treatment provides patients with a non-invasive option to eliminate that double chin. At Wirth Plastic Surgery, our Board Certified plastic surgeon can provide you with a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that is used to permanently reduce the appearance of a double chin. It dissolves fat cells in the target area, helping to improve the overall appearance of a person’s profile. Patients will generally see their final results after 2-3 treatments.
Kybella offers several benefits to patients, such as:
- Noninvasive treatments lasting about 15 minutes, with little to no downtime
- Beautiful, permanent results
- A noticeable difference after just one treatment, with final results after a few months
- May replace the need for chin liposuction or other forms of surgical contouring
This option is generally best suited for those who are overall in good mental and physical health. They are at, or near, a healthy, stable weight and have good skin elasticity to ensure there is no excess skin following the treatment. Patients can expect a small amount of tenderness, redness, or bruising at the injection site, and numbness or hardness may occur around the target area. These symptoms are temporary and completely normal. Cold compresses and compression garments are highly recommended following Kybella treatments to encourage healing and speed recovery time.
