Kybella Treatment In Fort Lauderdale
Looking To Get Rid Of A Double Chin?
Kybella is an FDA-approved, non-surgical fat reduction treatment for under the chin that mirrors the results of pricey liposuction treatments. Kybella uses injectable Deoxycholic Acid, naturally found in trivial amounts in the body, to metabolize excess fat deposits. The body then naturally resumes its normal metabolic processes, removing stubborn fat that accumulates under the chin.
How Does a Double Chin Form?
Double chin or submental fullness appears when fat accumulates underneath the chin, causing sagging and heaviness to one's physical appearance.
Those with double chin often struggle with self-esteem surrounding their facial profile. With the services offered at Galt Dermatology, you may rest assured that our skilled physicians are here to help.
What To Expect With A Kybella Treatment
Kybella treatments take no more than 30 minutes to achieve results that last. After the area under your chin is cleaned, the medication is injected with a fine needle into the subcutaneous fat. We will give you an ice pack to apply to the area to help with some tenderness and swelling as the medication starts to take effect.
Our physicians begin by addressing your specific concerns, and if you are currently an ideal candidate for treatments with Kybella.
The number of treatments necessary varies from patient to patient and will be addressed at your initial consultation. Most patients achieve their desired results to reduce the double chin with 2-6 treatments spaced out 2 months between each treatment.
Kybella treatments at Galt Dermatology can help you restore your confidence in your appearance.

Kybella Frequently Asked Questions
During the consultation, Dr. Miguel Villacorta will discuss your specific concerns with you and if treating them with Kybella is the best solution.
Generally speaking, almost anyone dealing with cosmetic concerns surrounding excess submental fat (double chin) is a candidate for Kybella treatments.
Kybella works by metabolizing and destroying fat cells that accumulate underneath the chin. Therefore, once the desired results are achieved, no further treatments are necessary. Other factors contributing to excess fat storage, such as aging, genetics, and weight gain, may influence the results over time.
The most common side effects are temporary, including localized swelling, tenderness, or redness in the area treated. This discomfort can last up to a week. Most healthy individuals will not experience any severe side effects to be concerned with their Kybella treatments.
All potential concerns will be addressed upon consultation with your physician. If you experience swelling and other temporary side effects for longer than a week, contact your physician as soon as possible.
