Kybella is the only injectable that can both contour and improve your chin line by reducing the fat where your chin connects with your neck. This injectable helps to eliminate “submental fullness,” which some of our patients refer to as a double chin. Dr. Miller will customize the Kybella treatment for you based on your individual aesthetic needs and goals. Once your ideal chin line is achieved with this injectable, you will likely not need re-treatment.
The Kybella Procedure
Dr. Miller will administer Kybella injectables in either his Brookline or his Boston office, and the procedure only takes around 15-20 minutes to complete. Kybella destroys fat cells in the area it is injected, and once these cells are destroyed they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Many patients achieve their desired results in two to four treatment sessions, each taking place about one month apart, but it is not uncommon to need six treatments to reach the look you desire.
As with any injectable, it is common to experience some numbness, bruising or swelling around the injection site and in the area surrounding it. This will disappear rapidly after the procedure, so there is no real recovery time needed after receiving Kybella injections.
Together with Dr. Miller you will develop a customized Kybella treatment plan. As mentioned earlier, some of our patients find that they achieve their aesthetic goals with only two treatments, while others have six treatments performed. Dr. Miller may recommend you combine your Kybella treatment with ThermiTight— a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure he developed and perfected—to reach your ideal chin profile.
