Why Get a Double Chin Fix?

The non-surgical, zero-downtime way to correct a double chin.

While many Clevens Face and Body Specialists patients opt for the Weekend Neck Lift to address "submental fullness" (also known as double chin), some patients prefer a nonsurgical treatment with no downtime. That’s why our team offers Kybella, as well as CoolSculpting Elite and SculpSure, to reduce double chins.

FDA-approved Kybella is an innovative injectable made with deoxycholic acid. Your body naturally produces this acid, which breaks down fat cells. When used under your chin, it destroys these fat cells and your body safely absorbs the acid and flushes away the destroyed cells. Similarly, CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells by freezing them, while SculpSure uses heat to destroy fat and tighten skin.

Liposuction is no longer the only way to address a double chin.

Double Chin Fix Benefits

Dramatic, long-lasting results that don’t wear off.

Kybella, CoolSculpting Elite, and SculpSure all use different methods for destroying fat, and that fat doesn’t return. That means, although you may need more than one treatment to achieve results, you won’t need additional treatments once you’ve achieved the look you want.

As the fatty tissue under your chin dissolves, the contour of your chin will improve over time. Many patients notice changes in their profile after the first treatment session. You should expect to see your final results a few weeks after your last session.

What is Kybella? Listen as Dr. Clevens explains this non-surgical method for fixing double chins.

Double Chin Fix Procedure

In and out in under 30 minutes.

Your procedure depends on the treatment you choose. A fine needle is used to place Kybella. While most patients do not need anesthesia, you may ask for a topical anesthetic. With CoolSculpting Elite, you may feel a slightly cool sensation. All procedures take less than 30 minutes and you can immediately return to your daily life. Although you might need multiple sessions, each treatment is done quickly in our office.

Many patients also opt to combine Kybella, CoolSculpting, and SculpSure with other treatments, such as Botox or dermal fillers, to simultaneously smooth fine facial lines or enhance lips.

Double Chin Fix Recovery

No recovery, no limitations.

The reason why so many people opt for Kybella, CoolSculpting Elite, SculpSure, or a combination of treatments is because there is no recovery. Even with minimally invasive procedures, there are some activities you have to avoid, like exercise. That’s not the case with any of these procedures, which is what makes them so popular.

If you want to combine your double chin fix with other treatments, talk with your doctor about what kind of time you have for recovery to ensure you can get right back to your activities. Always choose a trained, experienced provider to avoid any unnecessary complications.

Hear Dr. Clevens explain how SculpSure can be used alongside Kybella to achieve the best possible outcome.

What Our Patients Say

Hear from our Kybella patients.

“I appreciate Dr. Clevens and his modest approach to facial plastic surgery. If he truly feels you do not need it, or that a different procedure would be more beneficial he will talk to you about it. Most recently I went in looking to maybe get a neck lift. After our consultation I decided to give Kybella a try. I am 12 weeks out and am happy with the results. I love the easy and non-surgical aspect of Kybella.” –B Hart, review on RealSelf

Kybella FAQs

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an innovative injectable medicine from Allergan (the maker of Botox and Juvederm), designed to reduce submental fatty tissue, also known as a “double chin.”

How do Kybella injections work?

Kybella is made from the naturally occurring substance deoxycholic acid, a chemical used by the body to rid unwanted fat. As the deoxycholic acid destroys the fat cells, the unwanted fat can then be safely reduced by the body over time, revealing an improved contour and long-lasting results.

Will I be a good candidate for Kybella?

You might be a candidate for Kybella treatment if you are an adult with fullness of the submental region due to unwanted fat accumulation, commonly known as a “double chin.” Kybella candidates should be in good health overall and have a full understanding of the treatment plan.

How many Kybella treatments are required?

Depending on the severity of submental fat, between two and four Kybella treatments may be required for optimal results. Most patients begin to see results after only two treatments.

Are there any risks associated with Kybella?

Kybella has been approved by the FDA to safely reduce excess fat below the chin. While side effects are rare, there is a small chance for excessive bleeding, bruising, temporary numbness, and difficulty swallowing to occur. 

How much does Kybella cost?

The price of Kybella treatment may vary based on how many treatments are necessary to achieve the result you want. At our practice, Kybella treatments range from $1250 to $3750. All Kybella procedures are performed by our experienced injectors at either our Melbourne, Florida office or our Merritt Island, Florida location.
