Orlando Plastic Surgeon Discusses KYBELLA Treatment for the Reduction of a Double Chin

Dr. James Matas discusses KYBELLA.

Dr. James Matas offers non-surgical KYBELLA injections to reduce fat volume below the chin and jawline with virtually no downtime.

Orlando, FL – KYBELLA® is one of the latest innovations in cosmetic injectables. Recently FDA-approved to diminish fat accumulated beneath the chin and jawline,  KYBELLA® is the first ever injectable product designed for double chin reduction. Orlando plastic surgeon James A. Matas, MD is pleased to offer this effective treatment option to nonsurgically remove the excess fat that causes the appearance of a double chin.  

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in KYBELLA®, is a substance found naturally in the body that helps digest dietary fat, says Dr. Matas. He explains that once KYBELLA® is injected into a fat deposit, it breaks down fat cells and dissipates volume, creating a more slender appearance on the surface of the skin. Each treatment usually consists of a series of about ten to fifteen microinjections (the exact number depends on the individual’s needs) administered below the chin. Dr. Matas places the injections evenly across the targeted area to help facilitate balanced fat reduction and smooth results.

Dr. Matas reports that typically his patients with mild to moderate amounts of localized fat are very pleased with the results they achieve after completing the recommended number of treatment sessions. In his experience, results generally appear quickly after the targeted area is addressed, leading to leaner under-chin and jawline contours that enhance the overall facial profile and appearance. Within the three to four months following treatment, results can improve further as the body continues to metabolize the damaged fat cells, he explains.

In the past, neck lift surgery and liposuction techniques were the only options available for diminishing the appearance of a double chin, says Dr. Matas. KYBELLA® now provides the opportunity to permanently destroy fat cells beneath the chin without the cost, recovery, and downtime associated with a surgical procedure. Dr. Matas is careful to point out that surgery may offer more significant aesthetic benefits for some individuals; however, under the right circumstances, KYBELLA® alone can provide satisfactory improvement in the appearance of a double chin for many women and men. Ultimately, he notes that a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is the best way to determine if KYBELLA® or another approach will likely yield the best cosmetic results.
