Kybella: Non-Surgical Solution for Double Chin Reduction

Are you bothered by excess fat under your chin, commonly known as a "double chin"? Kybella, offered at Southeastern Institute of Restorative Medicine in Dothan, AL, is a non-surgical treatment that can help you achieve a more sculpted jawline without the need for invasive procedures.


Led by Dr. Gregory Thompson, our experienced team can provide you with a safe and effective Kybella treatment to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that is specifically designed to target and reduce submental fat, which is the fat that accumulates under the chin. It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the targeted area, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a more contoured and defined jawline.

How Does Kybella Work?

During a Kybella treatment session, our experienced healthcare provider will use a series of small injections to deliver Kybella into the area under your chin. The number of injections and the amount of Kybella used will depend on your individual needs and goals. Over time, Kybella works to break down the excess fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. The result is a more sculpted and defined jawline without the need for surgery or downtime.

Benefits of Kybella

Kybella offers several benefits for patients looking to reduce their double chin:● Non-Surgical: Kybella is a non-surgical treatment, which means no incisions or anesthesia are required, and there is minimal downtime compared to surgical options.● Customized Treatment: Kybella is a highly customizable treatment that can be tailored to your specific needs and goals, with the number of treatment sessions and amount of Kybella adjusted accordingly.● Long-Lasting Results: Once the fat cells are destroyed by Kybella, they are gone for good, resulting in long-lasting results that do not require ongoing maintenance treatments.● Natural-Looking Results: Kybella provides natural-looking results, as the fat reduction occurs gradually over time, allowing for a subtle and gradual improvement in your jawline contour.
