Dr. Andrea Doyle performs Kybella treatments at her Rhode Island plastic surgery practice for men and women struggling with stubborn fat beneath their chins. This submental fat is often extremely difficult to get rid of and may linger even after you’ve achieved a healthy weight. With Kybella, Dr. Doyle can help slim and reshape your chin and jawline without the need for surgery.
Who is Kybella for?
Because weight loss occurs on an overall scale and—contrary to popular belief—you can’t target specific areas, your face may be one of the last and most difficult areas from which to lose fat. However, a double chin isn’t always linked to weight gain and may be caused by other factors, such as age or genetics.
If you are stuck with stubborn fat beneath your chin, it can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance, even if the rest of your body is slim and athletic.
Before Kybella, liposuction was one of the only solutions for slimming down a double chin when diet and exercise weren’t enough. Now, Dr. Doyle can effectively reduce hard-to-lose submental fat through a series of non-surgical Kybella injections. This treatment is a great option for men and women who are healthy and at a stable weight, but who have had difficulty losing their double chins.
The Kybella procedure
Kybella should only be performed by a certified physician to ensure your safety and a natural-looking outcome. Dr. Doyle is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
When you come in for your Kybella treatment, Dr. Doyle will mark the injection sites beneath your chin using a specially designed template. This will help to achieve a smooth and even reduction of the problem fat. Dr. Doyle will then carefully administer each injection of Kybella into the marked sites.
Kybella works using deoxycholic acid to safely destroy unwanted submental fat. Once treated with deoxycholic acid, your body will naturally eliminate the fat cells, resulting in a slimmer, well-contoured appearance.
Kybella recovery and results
Kybella is a non-surgical procedure that takes just a half hour to perform and requires little to no downtime. You should feel well enough to resume normal activity shortly after your treatment, but may experience some minor side effects such as swelling, numbness, or redness of the chin and surrounding area.
Over time, your body will naturally flush out the disabled fat cells that were treated with Kybella. Depending on your condition, Dr. Doyle may recommend a series of up to six Kybella sessions to achieve the maximum benefit. Kybella can help to refine the contours of your chin and jawline for a youthful, healthy, and natural appearance.
