Kybella® for Men
Is Your Double Chin Adding Years To Your Appearance?
You can’t hide a double chin! This type of fat underneath the chin is called submental fat and it won’t budge with diet or exercise. Many men, who are at their ideal weight and are fit, can’t get rid of submental fat. In many cases this is due to genetics.
If you are man concerned about your double chin, you are not alone! A 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery stated that over half of people surveyed said they were bothered by a “double chin”. BAXT CosMedical’s® board certified dermatologists successfully treat submental fat with Kybella®, a non-surgical procedure that reduces moderate to severe fat below the chin and helps provide men with a more contoured chin.
What Causes A Double Chin and am I a Candidate for KYBELLA®?
The extra fullness beneath a man’s chin may have been present your whole adult life, or it may be a new development. The common factors that may cause a double chin include:
- Weight gain
Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, your double chin will not go away and makes you look older or heavier than you are. If you don’t want to have liposuction or undergo surgery, ask Drs. Rebecca Baxt and Saida Baxt if Kybella® is right for you. Women, you may also be a candidate for Kybella®, learn more how this injectable can help you achieve your fat reduction facial rejuvenation goals.

What Is KYBELLA® And How Does It Treat Submental Fat?
Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable prescription medicine for adults that helps improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat, or “double chin”). Kybella® is an effective way to non-surgically reduce the fullness beneath your chin.
At BAXT CosMedical®, our board certified dermatologists skillfully inject KYBELLA® into the chin fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring acid in your body. This acid aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When placed into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells.*

Results may vary and are not guaranteed.
Kybella® is a nonsurgical, in-office treatment. Many men treated with Kybella® experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatments. When placed into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Those cells, once gone, are no longer available to store or accumulate fat. Once your facial re-contouring goal is achieved, re-treatment is not expected.*
If men desire to tighten the skin under their chin, BAXT CosMedical® board certified dermatologists may recommend Ultherapy®. Ultherapy® uses ultrasound energy to help lift and tighten skin on the face, neck, and chest.
What Are Some Common Side Effects Of KYBELLA®?
The most common side effects of Kybella® include: swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. For most patients, downtime is minimal with some swelling and redness after the first treatment.*
