Kybella Injections for Chin Fat

KybellaReady to wave goodbye to that double chin?  Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Craig is pleased to announce the arrival of Kybella treatments to Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

Kybella was approved by the FDA in April of 2015 for the treatment of submental (under the chin) fat.  Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a synthetic version of a natural compound found within the human body.  When injected into the submental fat, the acid destroys the fat molecules, while leaving surrounding healthy tissue untouched.  The destroyed fat cells are naturally removed by the body, resulting in a steady aesthetic improvement to your chin’s appearance.

Kybella is usually administered in 2 to 3 treatments one month apart. You should expect to see results from your Kybella treatment after a few weeks.  Results are permanent; however, Kybella does not prevent the formation of new fat cells.  Therefore, ideal Kybella candidates should be willing to maintain their weight to maintain results.

All Kybella treatments are administered by Dr. Craig as required by the State of Mississippi.
