Trade Your Double Chin for a More Defined Jawline

If every glance in the mirror makes you self-conscious about your double chin, know you're not alone. At The Maas Clinic™ in San Francisco, we understand how this common concern can impact your confidence and daily life. With our Kybella treatment, you can bid farewell to the frustration and embarrassment of a double chin, reclaiming your self-assurance with a sleeker, more defined jawline.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella in San Francisco is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to reduce submental fullness, commonly known as a "double chin." Composed of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body, Kybella effectively targets and destroys fat cells beneath the chin, leading to a more contoured and defined jawline. This non-surgical solution offers a convenient and minimally invasive alternative to traditional liposuction, providing noticeable results with a series of simple injections. Overall, Kybella offers a convenient and effective solution for reducing submental fullness and enhancing facial contours with minimal disruption to daily life.

The Benefits of Kybella

Kybella offers a range of benefits for those seeking to eliminate stubborn submental fat:

  • Non-surgical: Kybella provides a non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures like liposuction for reducing submental fullness.
  • Precision: The treatment targets fat cells under the chin, resulting in a more sculpted and defined jawline.
  • Convenience: With minimal downtime and no need for general anesthesia, Kybella injections can typically be completed within a short office visit.
  • Natural results: As the body's natural metabolic processes gradually eliminate fat cells, the results of Kybella treatment appear gradually, leading to a more natural-looking outcome.
  • Long-lasting: Once fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat, making the results of Kybella treatment potentially permanent with proper maintenance.
  • Improved confidence: By effectively reducing the appearance of a double chin, Kybella can help individuals feel more confident and satisfied with their facial profile.

Is Kybella Right for Me?

Kybella in San Francisco is ideal for individuals bothered by the appearance of submental fullness or a double chin, which factors like aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations can cause. Candidates for Kybella typically exhibit excess fat beneath the chin that persists despite diet and exercise. If you feel self-conscious or dissatisfied with your chin and neck area profile, Kybella may offer a solution. However, since each person's anatomy and aesthetic goals are unique, scheduling a consultation at The Maas Clinic™ to determine if Kybella fits your needs is essential.

Kybella Recovery

Following a Kybella treatment, patients can resume their normal activities with minimal downtime. Some individuals may experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treated area, which usually resolves within a few days to a week. Following any post-procedure instructions we provide is essential to optimize healing and minimize discomfort. While visible results may not be immediate, patients can expect to see a gradual improvement in the appearance of their double chin as the body metabolizes and eliminates the treated fat cells. Multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve the best results depending on the individualized treatment plan and desired outcome. 

What to Expect: The Kybella Procedure

During a Kybella procedure, patients can expect a straightforward and minimally invasive experience. The treatment typically begins with topical numbing cream to ensure comfort during the procedure. Once the numbing takes effect, we administer a series of injections directly into the targeted area beneath the chin using a fine needle. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella disrupts the fat cells' membranes, causing them to break down and be absorbed by the body's natural metabolic processes. The procedure itself usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes, making it a convenient treatment option, especially for those with busy schedules. Since Kybella is administered as a series of injections, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results. This incremental approach allows for gradual fat reduction and a more natural-looking outcome.
