PLASTIC SURGEON IN TAMPA
Submental fullness is caused by excess fat stored under the chin, also known as the “double chin”. This may come about from weight fluctuations, genetics, hormone changes, or even aging. At Tampa Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, we offer the leading FDA-approved injection treatment, Kybella, for submental fullness. Kybella contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally found in our digestive tract and dissolves the fat that we absorb through our diet. Once the target areas are injected, the deoxycholic acid will actually dissolve fat cells. The best thing about this treatment is that the results are permanent! Dr. Brown is pleased to offer this as one of his top treatments in the Tampa, Lutz, Trinity and Brandon area.
Benefits of Kybella
- Minimally invasive
- Non-surgical treatment

- No extensive recovery or restrictions
- Permanent results
What to expect
Dr. Brown will assess each patient to determine if Kybella is an appropriate treatment for them through a targeted physical examination of the problem area, taking into account the patient’s medical history and aesthetic goals. After the consultation, Dr. Brown will create a customized plan and schedule the treatment. All necessary treatment information will be discussed before the treatment sessions begin.
During the treatment, ice is used to create a numbing effect, a marking grid is placed under the chin, and a series of tiny injections will be carefully placed into the area of concern. For most patients, a minimum of two treatments are required to obtain desired results, with most patients requiring three or four treatments. Each patient treatment plan will vary based on Dr. Brown’s recommendations along with the patient’s desired aesthetic outcome.
Patients will experience swelling and redness. These hallmarks of inflammation are actually a great sign that the product is doing its job, thus increasing confidence in the ultimate result. Some patients may experience mild bruising or discomfort. The most swelling is typically found after the first injection, with more mild swelling after the second, third, etc. After the treatment, patients are able to immediately return to normal activities and work. All results are permanent and may be seen within a few months.
