KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness (“double chin”). When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. A treatment plan is customized by Dr. Baroody to each patients’ aesthetic goals for an improved profile. Once the aesthetic response is achieved, re-treatment is not expected.
