What Is Kybella?

We take pride in offering Kybella. Using the latest advances in medical techniques, it is the leading non-surgical double chin removal treatment available. Kybella is a minimally-invasive, FDA-approved injection treatment that eliminates fat cells under the chin. Kybella contains a synthetic deoxycholic acid that is naturally created by the body to absorb fat cells. This treatment is specifically concentrated in the chin area. And it permanently destroys fat cells. All the while, the skin and tissue around the target area remains unaffected. So you get your results with precision and potency.

Unlike surgery, Kybella allows patients to achieve results without any interruption to their daily lives. You do not need to worry about scarring or long periods spent recovering. Instead, you get to have the appearance you deserve without the risk and inconvenience of surgical alteration. Countless patients have already received this amazing treatment, and the results speak for themselves.

The Double Chin Removal Process

Through a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Linville will evaluate your:

  • Medical history
  • Targeted area
  • Aesthetic goals
  • Candidacy for this procedure

After the consultation, he will then schedule a procedure date. Before your treatment, he will discuss any preoperative instructions. You are never in the dark at any point! Dr. Linville will thoroughly devise a treatment plan that will effectively achieve your desired aesthetic.

Kybella treatment can take anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes per session. Since there is no need for general anesthesia, you can immediately return to your daily life. No interruptions to your life or work at all!

Injections and sessions will vary based upon the desired aesthetic and Dr. Linville’s discretion. However, we will provide you with a complete overview before you begin your treatments. This includes the number of sessions you may need to achieve your results and how long you can expect each session to be.


Kybella Recovery & Results

Since there are no incisions, you do not need to worry about a lengthy recovery period. At most, patients may experience minor swelling or bruising around the target area. However, these should not last for more than a couple days. During this brief period, you will be able to return to your daily life. Still, some patients prefer to rest a day to allow the swelling to subside before returning to their routine schedules.

After the treatment, Dr. Linville will schedule a postoperative appointment. During this, he can assess the healing process and address any further concerns or questions.

Most patients report seeing significant improvements after a single session. However, your final results will depend on your individual plan. Full results of each session may be seen in a few weeks. You continue to see improvements as your body responds to the treatment and fat cells are absorbed. If you have any questions at any point, Dr. Linville and his staff are here for you.

Alternative Surgical Options

We also offer alternative surgical options to Kybella, including:

Neck lifts remove fat and eliminate excess skin under the chin to reveal a tighter, more youthful appearance. Lower Face liposuction may be performed under the chin to quickly remove fat.

Both of these procedures are:

  • Not permanent
  • Highly involved
  • Require the use of anesthesia
  • Have a longer recovery

However, they may be right for some patients. During your consultation, Dr. Linville will go over all your available options for reaching your aesthetic goals.
