Have you always struggled with the appearance of a double chin? Have you changed your diet and added exercise to your lifestyle and still have extra chin flab hanging around?
Luckily, Cleveland board-certified surgeon Dr. Husni, is here to offer you a new treatment. Kybella, from the makers of Botox, is an injectable treatment that improves the appearance of submental fullness in the neck and chin area. This treatment gives patients a slimmer face as well as an improved facial profile.
Kybella is the first FDA-approved injectable to treat submental fullness in the chin area. Sometimes, when a patient has fullness in this area, it not only will give the appearance of being overweight, but will also make a person look older as well. Eliminating this fullness will reveal a more chiseled jawline with a more attractive facial contour.
What is Kybella made of?
Kybella is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat. This therefore destroys fat cells, and after a couple of treatments, you will be permanently left with a slimmer chin silhouette.
Is Kybella Right for Me?
The “double chin” is typically associated with weight gain but is more often a result of your genetic makeup. Some people just hold more fat in certain areas. In order to tell if you are a good candidate for Kybella, you should schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. This is because this treatment is most effective on patients that still have a certain amount of skin elasticity left.
Kybella is meant to treat submental fullness due to excess fat, not excess skin. However, don’t worry if you’re not a candidate for Kybella because Dr. Husni offers a variety of solutions that are sure to fit your circumstances, such as short-scar facelifts for patients with a minor degree of loose skin around the neck and jowls.

Overall, Kybella has been found to be a very effective and a far less invasive alternative to surgical treatments that can require more downtime. Kybella could be the solution that you’ve been looking in completing your healthy appearance by getting rid of the stubborn fat.
