Double Chin Removal

Farrior Facial Plastic Surgery Tampa is proud to offer Kybella injections, an FDA-approved non-surgical double chin removal that helps your jawline appear more youthful, slim, and contoured.

As specialists in facial aesthetics, our team has performed hundreds of Kybella treatments with high patient satisfaction ratings. Every woman wants a defined jawline, just as every man desires a chiseled jaw. If you have a double chin, it is not your fault. Double chins can be genetic, and diet and exercise can have little to no effect.

Facial sagging often worsens with age, making a double chin more obvious. That’s why we're excited to offer Kybella, the only FDA-approved injectable proven to reduce moderate to severe chin fat. If you are bothered by a double chin, choosing the best facial aesthetic center in Tampa ensures the best results. We are trained in proper injection techniques to ensure your experience is as smooth as your new chin will look after treatment.

How Does Kybella Work?

Deoxycholic acid is an enzyme found in your body that helps break down and absorb fat.

According to the FDA, Kybella destroys fat cells to reduce the appearance of submental fat under the chin when injected subcutaneously. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store fat. This visibly reduces the appearance of a double chin or submental fat.

How Many Kybella Treatments Do I Need?

While a single treatment delivers noticeable results, our highly-trained facial injectors may suggest more than one treatment.

The treatment course depends on the severity of chin fat and how contoured you would like your chin to look. In clinical studies, 59% of patients receive six treatments in total. Together, you and our staff will come up with a treatment plan to help you achieve a beautifully contoured chin.

Farrior Facial Plastic Surgery - The Kybella Expert You Can Trust

Kybella jawline contouring gives beautiful, permanent results at a fraction of the price of cosmetic surgery.

As one of Tampa’s leading cosmetic surgery clinics, we have many options that can be tailored to your needs. Book an appointment today with Tampla plastic surgeon Dr. Farrior to learn more about permanent chin fat removal.

How Long Does Kybella Last?

Kybella is permanent. It works by permanently killing fat cells. The fat cells are dissolved and eliminated by your body over a period of about 5-6 weeks. Those dead cells will never come back.

However, if you gain weight in the future, it is possible for new fat cells to form. Maintaining a stable body weight prevents this from happening. That way, you can enjoy the results of Kybella permanently.

Kybella Downtime and Recovery

Recovery from Kybella treatment is fast and easy, but you should plan for some minimal downtime. You can return to work and daily activities right away in most cases.

Mild bruising and swelling are common after Kybella double chin removal, so you should book the appointment at least two weeks before a special event. In clinical trials, 72% of our Tampa Kybella patients experienced bruising that subsided in 1-2 weeks. Since it is in the chin area, these small bruises are easily hidden.

Kybella FAQs

First, the chin area is sterilized. Numbing cream is applied, and several quick injections are administered. The Kybella procedure feels like a slight pricking sensation that is mildly uncomfortable. Most discomfort subsides in minutes but can be severe in some patients. That is Kybella working to dissolve the fat! You can return to work and most daily activities right away.

Farrior Facial Plastic Surgery strives to deliver the best Kybella Tampa has to offer, it is the safest, most innovative aesthetic procedure. With more than 100 years of combined experience, our compassionate staff goes above and beyond to make your Kybella experience as comfortable as possible.

While Kybella is a safe, minimally invasive procedure, side effects may occur. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and hardness at the injection site.

Other possible effects include nerve injury to the jaw (<5%), temporary numbness, and trouble swallowing. As specialists in cosmetic facial procedures, we take great care to ensure Kybella injections are administered correctly by Dr. Farrior or our nurse practitioner to minimize the risk of side effects.

For our patients seeking double chin removal without the downtime, pain, and expense of neck lift surgery or chin liposuction, Kybella is an excellent choice. Some patients may be too young to consider a neck lift or feel their double chin is not severe enough to warrant going under the knife.

Naturally, you want to see a dramatic improvement to your double chin. Kybella is proven to work. It is appealing because a series of treatments can greatly reduce your double chin with no downtime or scarring. The average cost of Kybella is also more affordable than jaw contouring surgery or chin implants.

While a neck lift or chin liposuction deliver dramatic results in one go, multiple Kybella treatments can provide astonishing results that, just like surgery, are permanent. Cosmetic injectables allow you to improve your facial structure gradually, without committing to the “all or nothing” results of surgery. Best of all, there is no recovery time, so you can marvel at your new slim chin just weeks before your next big event, not months. Our highly trained injectors can help determine if Kybella is right for you. For patients with a double chin, jowls, and other signs of chin/neck aging, Dr. Farrior is also available to discuss surgical treatments for a better jawline and more shapely chin and neck.

Dr. Farrior is so much more than a doctor – he’s an artist. Dr. Farrior has the right medical knowledge and the artistic vision needed to create harmony among his patients’ facial features. He truly listens to his patients and is always open to their concerns.
