Kybella® in Jacksonville, FL
Submental fat that develops under the chin can make your face look heavy. Unfortunately, exercise doesn’t always correct the problem, and this leaves many men and women feeling less like themselves. For patients in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach and surrounding areas of Florida, OBI BioAesthetic Institute and Jacksonville Plastic Surgery offer Kybella®, an innovative injectable treatment that gradually reduces fat associated with a double chin.
What is Kybella®?
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common yet under-treated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain. A double chin is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only FDA-approved prescription nonsurgical treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.”
What are the Benefits of Kybella®?
The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat and are shed from the body.
What Happens During the Kybella® Treatment?
We inject the product directly into the targeted area of fat and then massage it to facilitate the breakdown of fat cells. A Kybella® treatment typically takes about 30 to 45 minutes and based on the area treated more than one Kybella treatment may be needed. It takes a few weeks for the results to be noticeable and they will improve over time. In addition to treating the chin and neck area, Kybella® can be used to reduce bulges along the bra line, back fat, “kankles” and fatty kneecaps.
What is the Downtime After Kybella®?
Your recovery will be painless with no downtime. The area under your chin and along your jaw may feel tender for the first few days.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost in Jacksonville?

OBI BioAesthetic Institute and Jacksonville Plastic Surgery accept several forms of payment, including CareCredit®, Prosper Healthcare Lending and GreenSky™ financing.
