Kybella® in Charleston County, SC

Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dennis K. Schimpf, MD, MBA, FACS, of Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery is pleased to provide Kybella® treatments designed to eliminate the double chin for the residents of Charleston County and the surrounding South Carolina communities, with offices in Charleston, Summerville, and Hilton Head.

What is Kybella®?

Now patients can eliminate their double chin with new FDA-approved Kybella® at Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery. This exciting and revolutionary new procedure involves melting away stubborn submental fat, also known as a double chin. Kybella® injections take only a short amount of time to complete (less than one hour) and patients are able to resume their normal activities almost immediately afterwards.

Benefits of Kybella®

Kybella® is unique in that it literally melts away fat, causing your double chin to actually disappear. Because of the extremely limited options for correction, submental fat underneath your chin has been an under-treated aesthetic issue. This is unfortunate because a double chin can make you look older and heavier no matter what your age or weight. And, in many cases, a double chin or submental fat doesn’t respond positively to lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise. Kybella® can firm up your chin and override genetics, giving you a sleek and trim profile.

Kybella® Procedure

Kybella® is a safe, non-surgical procedure performed in our comfortable and relaxing Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery offices. Before your treatment begins, any anesthetic necessary will be administered. Then, using a special grid, we will carefully draw the boundaries for the injections on your skin. Using this temporary grid marked on your chin as a guide, you will then receive 14 to 50 injections, depending on your particular needs. The procedure is very simple and straightforward, taking roughly 20 minutes to complete. The procedure can be done over your lunch hour, as there is no downtime or complicated recovery process. With Kybella®, you might require a few treatments spaced out at least a month apart to achieve the results you desire.

Kybella® Post-Treatment

The best thing about Kybella® is that it’s less invasive than any surgical approaches to addressing submental fat. You avoid all the negative issues involved with surgery, such as anesthesia and other risks connected with surgery, including the risk of infection and a longer downtime. Most patients see noticeable results after two to three treatment sessions. The number of treatments required will depend on the amount of fat being eradicated. Kybella® recovery is usually quick and uneventful. At most, patients report some very minor bruising and swelling that resolves within several days. Mild discomfort may be experienced at the injection sites but is easily treated with over-the-counter pain relievers. Most patients return right back to their routine activities on the same day as their procedure.

What is the Cost of Kybella®?

The total cost of your Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery Kybella® treatment will vary based upon how much treatment is required. During your consultation with Dr. Schimpf, we will develop a personalized treatment plan, and you will be informed of your treatment costs and methods of payment. We are happy to accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards. Financing is also available so that our Kybella® treatments are affordable to all of our patients.
