A Non-Surgical Solution to Eliminate a Double Chin
Submental fat, also known as a double chin, refers to excess fat that hangs below the chin line, often detracting from the natural contours of the face. Even following weight loss, reducing or eliminating this excess fat can be very difficult.
Please view Dr. Eliopoulos’ Kybella before and after results. These are actual patients.
Dr. Dina Eliopoulos offers KYBELLA injections at her Chelmsford, MA practice to help improve the appearance of this troublesome area. The nonsurgical treatment is a great alternative to liposuction and can achieve lasting effects.
Understanding How KYBELLA Works
KYBELLA is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and is injected directly into areas of fat to reduce the appearance of a double chin. The drug is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by the body, and which helps assist in the absorption of fat in the body. Properly injected underneath the chin, and administered by a licensed health care professional, KYBELLA will damage the unwanted fat cells while leaving the surrounding area unaffected.
KYBELLA injections are a minimally invasive treatment that is completed without any type of surgery or incisions.
What to Expect During Your Treatment
Depending on the amount of excess fat a patient has, the number of injections and treatment sessions will vary. Some patients may require three to six quick treatment sessions, that are spread two to three months apart. However, many patients have seen great results from a series of about two to three sessions, which typically take about 15 minutes from the time the treatment begins.
What to Expect in a Consultation
Dr. Dina Eliopoulos has nearly 2 decades of experience as a board-certified plastic surgeon, with a reputation for dedication, surgical excellence, and professionalism. The purpose of her consultation is not to “convince you” to undergo a procedure, but to learn about your goals and educate you on your surgical options.Schedule a Consultation Today

KYBELLA injections are a non-surgical minimally invasive treatment to improve unwanted fat under the chin. Kybella does not involve any type of surgery or incisions, just tiny injections of the product into the areas of unwanted neck fat. Following a visit to our office, patients may experience some minor bruising, swelling, numbness, and some firm areas around the injection site. Many of the side effects will dissipate in just a couple of days, but others may last up to three weeks. After your first treatment, we will also schedule you for your next visit, commonly within two to three months. By your next treatment, you will typically be seeing changes in the contour of your neck as your body naturally eliminates those fat cells destroyed by the KYBELLA. The great news is that you will not make new fat cells to replace these!
Determining Your Candidacy
Fortunately, at the Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Eliopoulos has several effective options to improve the contour of your neck. During your visit to our office, Dr. Eliopoulos and her trained staff or Nurse Injector will examine the amount of submental fat and help you determine which solution is right for you. Although KYBELLA injections are recommended to adult patients with moderate to severe fat, and provide exceptional results that are similar to our liposuction procedures, not everyone will be a good candidate. For some patients, Dr. Eliopoulos may recommend liposuction to better define the contours of the neck. This can also tighten the skin.
Schedule Your Visit
If you would like to achieve more defined contours along your chin and jaw, KYBELLA injections may be the right option for you. Many of our patients are seeing stunning results from the treatments, so please contact us to learn more about how we can help you achieve your desired look.
