Kybella® for Men

Schedule Consultation

Submental fullness, commonly referred to as a “double chin”, is a common cosmetic concern, especially for men who want a more defined chin and jawline. This submental fat is generally resistant to diet and exercise alone, so hitting the gym and sticking to salads isn’t going to do much for this particular issue. Fortunately, there is a new solution called Kybella. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that eliminates unwanted fat below the chin. This is an excellent alternative for men who aren’t ready to undergo a full-on neck lift or liposuction surgery.

Am I the Right Candidate for Kybella?

If you are unhappy with your chin’s contour due to submental fullness, Kybella may be an excellent solution for you. Almost any man 18 years or older is a candidate for Kybella, but if you currently have an infection below your chin, treatment will be postponed until it completely heals. A consultation at our Southfield, MI office is necessary to determine your candidacy.

What is the Kybella Treatment?

Kybella is an injectable formula of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in our body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. Once Kybella is injected into your double chin, it destroys the fat cells. Once destroyed, fat cells are unable to accumulate or store additional fat, which results in a reduction of your double chin and a more chiseled chin contour.

Each treatment plan is unique, but generally patients see results with two to four sessions spaced about six to eight weeks apart. Depending on your expected outcomes, you and our professional provider will determine a treatment plan tailored to your specific goals.

What Will Be My Recovery From Kybella?

There is little to no downtime associated with Kybella injections, so you can return to work right after your appointment. Some common side effects from Kybella include swelling, bruising, numbness, pain and redness around the injection site(s). However, these side effects are generally mild and heal on their own within a week.

What Results can I Expect from Kybella?

Kybella results in a reduction of your double chin appearance, eliminating any unwanted fat in the chin area. This provides a slimmer appearance, along with a more prominent, chiseled jawline contour. Since the fat cells are destroyed, touch-up treatments of Kybella are not expected, and results are long-lasting as long as you stick to a healthy diet and workout regularly.
