If you are sick and tired of looking in the mirror and seeing a double chin, you may want to take advantage of a new treatment that can dissolve fat under your chin without the need for surgery. Instead of a surgical procedure, you can have a procedure that utilizes a new treatment known as Kybella. This new procedure can mean the end for your ultimate selfie-killer, your double-chin.
Imagine how easy it will be to schedule an appointment at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa in Fort Lauderdale and get your double-chin Kybella treatment, which will result in it being reduced significantly and in many cases, totally dissolved! Imagine being able to look in the mirror and see a contoured jawbone without excess fat hanging off it. We are ready to help you and we can begin with a complimentary consultation to discuss if you are a candidate!
How Does This Procedure Work?
The Kybella injection contains something that your body naturally creates, which helps it to absorb fat, called deoxycholic acid. The Kybella procedure has been approved by the FDA and works by destroying fat cells. This procedure is a great alternative to surgery or liposuction in order to treat fat that leads to a double chin.
Once injected into your skin, the drug immediately goes to work on your double chin by destroying submental fat. It works by causing it to burst and disappear permanently. Excess fat under the chin and neck is a top concern for most people. They feel that a double chin makes them look older than they actually are, so this new treatment option is great news!
Why Do You Need Kybella?
Almost 80% of people that suffer from double chin are concerned with it. If you are one of these people, we can help you. By eliminating your double chin, you can improve your self-confidence, your self-esteem, and the way you look in photos.
Length of Treatment and Kybella Results
The treatment length will vary from person to person. However, on average, a client will need about 12 to 20 injections per visit. For the average client, they will need about two to four visits that are spaced four weeks apart. Your treatment should take about 15 minutes each time.
As our client, you will likely see results within two to four treatments. If you have an extreme case, you may need up to six treatments that are spaced four weeks apart before seeing results. During your complimentary consult, we can discuss your individual case and give you an idea of how many treatments will be needed and when you should be able to expect results. Results do vary and everyone is different, but the good news is that this procedure absolutely works!
Studies that were conducted with Kybella before approving its use showed that 80% of people saw the results they wanted. In addition to that, once multiple treatments have been completed, your results can last several years but will vary from client to client.

Can Kybella Be Used to Tighten Skin?
With the remarkable results that this treatment has produced, people have begun to wonder if they could use it to tighten their saggy skin. However, this procedure is made to melt fat not tighten skin. If you have saggy skin that you would like tightened, we have other options such as BOTOX® and Fillers that may be better suited to treat your issue.
Side Effects of Kybella
As with any procedure, you may run into the common side effects such as:
- Excessive swelling
All of these effects resolve themselves. Although they don’t resolve as quickly as many other injectable products, in the end you will have the perfect chin without excess fat.
Future of Kybella
Currently, Kybella is only approved for use below the neck, particularly the chin. This treatment is not made to dissolve fat around your mid-section since it works best on small areas of the body. While there are other fatty collections that can appear in small areas of your body such as your eye bags, there are safety risks that must be researched before this product can be used for those issues. Our BOTOX® and Filler products, or even our Vampire Facelift procedures can lead to an improvement and can be used for the following areas:
