Oftentimes, problem areas have multiple treatment options depending on the outcome you are looking for. However, with submental fullness, also known as a “double chin”, Kybella is one of the only non-surgical options available. Fortunately, this option is a great one for many patients suffering from submental fullness.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment meant for those with a “double chin”. Kybella is administered under your chin where the fat is located with multiple injections. Depending on the results you are looking for, you will go in for two to six treatment sessions, with each session occurring at least one month apart.

Essentially, Kybella is able to break down the fat cells under your chin through the use of deoxycholic acid. This molecule is found naturally in your body and functions as an absorber of fat, leading to the destruction of fat cells. Due to the nature of the procedure, you should not have to go through the treatment again, as the treated cells will not be able to store fat anymore.

A double chin is very common, even amongst healthy people. Aging and genetics contribute to submental fullness, but Kybella is here to improve the appearance of your double chin. With sessions lasting 15-20 minutes, you will end your treatment with a trimmer and more even profile.

Side Effects of Kybella

As with any treatment, there are side effects. However, as a non-surgical injection, the risks are not severe. You can expect to experience slight pain at the injection site, as well as some swelling and/or bruising. All side effects will be covered in your consultation with Dr. Rubach.

You should not pursue Kybella if you have an infection in or near the treatment area. It is also important that during your consultation you discuss your full medical history.

Our Client Testimonials

I'm so glad I found Dr. Rubach and Dr. Franco; both doctors are kind and considerate. They take into account what your goal is and guide with their expert advice to come up with the best and a realistic outcome. I had gone to them for a mastopexy and rhinoplasty, in which, both I had felt completely at ease about. The result for both are amazing. I'm not insecure about my breasts anymore and I finally feel like my nose belongs on my face. The refined, subtle changes with the rhinoplasty have made a huge difference that looks natural. The mastopexy has given my breasts a more youthful look, and has allowed me to be comfortable with my shape. I can't praise these doctors enough. And I can't forget the rest of the staff. Margo, helped work with me to get everything sorted along the way, and really helped me to feel comfortable for what I was stepping into. Looking for doctors, to have this done by, wasn't easy. I tried to find to someone experienced, skilled, caring, and honest, and I can genuinely say that I not only found one, but two doctors with those characteristics.

I was a rhinoplasty patient at the Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery in Naperville during May of 2015. I needed surgery after encountering "a foul ball to the face" at a minor league game . My nose was shattered into pieces and Dr. Rubach helped me return to my normal self. He perfected my facial symmetry, increased my confidence and increased my breathing ability to 100%. Dr. Rubach did not transform my face into something that I wasn't. He maintained my facial character while naturally making me look "better". If you are considering rhinoplasty, I would highly recommend Dr. Rubach. I had the best experience and a fantastic outcome. The nurses were so kind and everyone made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. The surgery was simple due to the great employees and professional service. Also, I was given as much attention as I needed post-operation. Dr. Rubach was with me every step of the way through my recovery. My face is a mirror image of my pre-op digital imaging, just as Dr. Rubach and I discussed. I cannot believe how fantastic my outcome is!

Words can not express my gratitude to Dr. Franco, he made me feel normal again!!! After carrying twins to full term, my stomach had seen better days. From the minute I met Dr. Franco, I knew he was the right surgeon to perform my tummy tuck. He listened during the consultation!!!! He didn't want to do more than I needed (another PS wanted to do much more work) and answered all of my questions. I am two weeks post op and my results are better than I ever could have imagined. I would highly recommend Dr. Franco and his wonderful staff!!!

Both Dr Rubach and Dr Franco are wonderful, understanding and informative. If you describe what you are looking to achieve they will guide you to the best possible procedure. I have had both Dr Rubach and Dr Franco assist me in making very important decisions regarding changes I was looking to make. I would and I have recommended both doctors to friends and family. I would also like to add that the office staff and office environment is friendly, helpful and very courteous. It was a very positive experience for me and I will always go to this office should the need arise.

I could not be more pleased with both the outcome of my surgery and my experience. Dr. Rubach and the entire staff have been amazing from the first consultation through every post op appointment. I would (and have) referred this practice to others.
