Dr. Silberg is proud to offer KYBELLA®, an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment for the reduction of submental fat, more commonly known as a double chin, for men and women. For many patients, it is a viable alternative to liposuction or a surgical neck lift.
The development of a submental fullness, or a double chin, can be influenced by aging, weight or genetics and is often resistant to diet and exercise. A double chin can detract from facial aesthetics and balance. KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for improving the appearance of a mild to severe double chin. KYBELLA® does not resolve issues with excess loose skin. If you have a double chin that is accompanied by an excess of loose skin, a surgical procedure, such as a neck lift, may be required to achieve your desired look. Dr. Silberg can help you find the best solution to achieve your desired aesthetic goal.
KYBELLA® is non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids with the breakdown and absorbtion of dietary fat.
How Does KYBELLA® Work?
KYBELLA® is injected into the fat under the chin. Each treatment consists of a series of injections, with each session taking approximately 15-20 minutes. Most patients require two to four sessions, but up to six treatments can be administered for more severe cases. Dr. Silberg can help you determine the best treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goal. Treatment sessions are scheduled at least one month apart. After achieving your desired aesthetic result, retreatment is not expected because KYBELLA® causes destruction of existing fat cells.
Most people can go about their business after a KYBELLA® treatment. However, there may be some temporary swelling, bruising, redness, numbness, or discomfort at the injection site.
