A common struggle for many men and women is stubborn submental fat, or a double chin. Despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, problem fat can often linger along the chin and jawline, causing a person to appear overweight. With Kybella treatments now available at Revalla Plastic Surgery in Denver, men and women can contour their under chin area and enjoy a sleeker, slimmer appearance without surgery or downtime.
Kybella is a non-surgical injectable approved for the treatment of submental fat (fat beneath the chin). Using the enzyme deoxycholic acid, Kybella breaks down the problem fat cells and causes them to be naturally expelled from your body. With a personalized series of Kybella treatments, you can effectively reduce your stubborn chin fat for a younger, slimmer, and healthier appearance.

How We Perform the Kybella Treatment
Prior to your Kybella treatment, you will have a private consultation with one of our injectors to discuss your unique situation and personal goals. Based on the amount of fat and your desired outcome, the two of you will determine if Kybella is an effective option for you. An alternative option for reducing submental fat is facial liposuction, which is recommended for those with higher amounts of stubborn fat who may not be an ideal candidate for Kybella.
Kybella is performed in-office at our plastic surgery and aesthetics practice in Littleton, Colorado. There is no anesthesia required for this treatment, although a topical gel may be used to numb the area and minimize any discomfort. A specially designed template will then be used to mark the specific injection sites. This helps to ensure a balanced and even reduction of the underlying fat cells.
Each injection of Kybella is then carefully administered below the chin until the entire area has been treated. Once complete, you are free to return to your normal routine with minimal downtime.
Results from Kybella are gradual and will require multiple sessions to experience the full benefits of the treatment. Most of our Kybella patients begin noticing results within a few weeks after their initial treatment.
Each individual patient is different and we will recommend a different number of sessions based on your unique circumstances. Most men and women experience the best results from 2-4 treatment sessions at one month intervals.
Kybella is a non-surgical procedure that does not require any anesthesia. A topical numbing gel can be applied before your Kybella treatment to reduce any discomfort. As with any injectable, there will be some bruising and swelling after each session, but most men and women will experience little to no downtime and can get right back to their busy schedules.
Once the submental fat cells are treated with Kybella, they collapse and are no longer able to store fat. This makes for long-lasting results that can be maintained by simply continuing to live a healthy lifestyle.
