Fullness under your chin and neck or a double chin can be a constant source of worry and embarrassment. Especially if you haven’t been noticing improvements with a healthy diet and regular exercise. The excess fat beneath your chin (submental fat) may be a result of weight gain, but it can also be due to genetics or develop during the natural aging process. If this stubborn fat is making you self-conscious, turn to our expert oral surgeon, Dr. Billy Laun for personalized Kybella in Carbondale, IL. We provide Kybella to treat patients who have moderate to severe fat below their chin and provide long-term improvements to their appearance and profile.

Kybella is identical to the deoxycholic acid produced by our bodies that helps absorb fats. When Kybella is injected into the submental fat, it works to permanently destroy the fat cells without the need for invasive liposuction. To ensure successful treatment, a thorough understanding of the neck anatomy is necessary as critical structures, including the marginal mandibular branch of the facial nerve, lie within this area. The proper training and experience deliver a more precise treatment to meet the unique needs and anatomies of each patient. Treatment should never be standardized and will require customization (generally 2-4 injections) to produce the most natural and longest-lasting results.
Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons are uniquely qualified to offer Kybella treatment as they’ve completed years of training focused on the anatomy and physiology of the head and neck, including skeletal structure, nerve location, and muscle groups in both regions. Because Kybella delivers gradual results that may not be seen immediately, our oral surgeons have spent years perfecting injection techniques and protocols to help you safely reach your desired aesthetic goals with the minimal amount of product and number of appointments.
Our Kybella Treatment Process
Your initial consultation will consist of an evaluation of your facial structure and neck. Understanding your unique physiology ensures that the treatment we provide is as safe and effective as possible. We’ll also determine the number of injections you’ll need to achieve your desired aesthetic outcome. Treatments are typically spaced one month apart and take about 20 minutes. With expert numbing of the neck, the multiple injections used during your treatment will cause minimal discomfort. For most patients, recovery time is minimal, and most people can return to work and resume their normal physical activity within 24-48 hours of having the procedure. Though Kybella injections work gradually, the result will be permanent.
