Are you frustrated with stubborn fat under the chin? Do you shy away from photos or selfies because of having a double chin? Well, you’re not alone. Many people have excess fat below the chin and studies indicate that nearly 80 percent of people are concerned about a double chin.

Oftentimes, fat in this area is resistant to diet and exercise and can be a result of genetics. Fortunately, there is a solution. Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that permanently destroys fat cells under the chin. Keep reading for more.


Dr. Andrew Lofman’s staff is highly skilled in injectable treatments and have been providing Kybella treatments for years. One of the best parts about Kybella is that it is nonsurgical. No incisions, simply injections. Kybella is comprised of deoxycholic acid, a component that is naturally made by the body.

During the treatment, your injector will apply a grid to the area to mark where your injections go. Then, we use a small needle to inject the solution under the chin in the marked areas. The submental fat is targeted, and the surrounding skin and tissue are not damaged whatsoever. You may experience a slight burning sensation; this is totally normal.

Overall the treatment takes about an hour. Afterwards, you will see swelling in the area, which dissipates within about one week. Everyone is different, and some may need two or three treatments for maximum effectiveness.

Kybella is effective and safe, and the results speak for themselves. The incredible part is that the unwanted fatty tissue is permanently destroyed and cannot store fat even in the future.


Dr. Lofman and his staff are pleased to offer Kybella in his southeast Michigan plastic surgery office.
