Kybella

Kybella in Sarasota, Fl

The surgeons at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center offer Kybella®, a revolutionary way to decrease moderate to severe amounts of fat under the chin without surgery. Commonly known as a “double chin”, excess submental fat can be reduced with Kybella injections by a plastic surgeon without the time, expense, and pain of neck liposuction. Like the rest of the body, the chin can accumulate pockets of stubborn fat that cannot be reduced by a health diet and exercise. The active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, permanently destroys dietary fat beneath the chin. Patients will need multiple Kybella treatment sessions to achieve their desired results, but the change is permanent.
