In Columbus, Ohio, Dr. Anne Taylor is one of the few specialists qualified to offer KYBELLA injections, a breakthrough treatment approved by the FDA to reduce fat that causes a double chin. Dr. Taylor was among the first doctors trained to perform this "double chin shot," and patients at Aesthetica Surgery & Spa in Columbus enjoy the convenience of this minimally invasive, quick treatment.

Is KYBELLA Right for You?
There are various reasons that men and women develop a double chin. Genetics, age, and weight gain may cause fat to accumulate below your chin — what is called "submental fat." For many years, neck liposuction was the only treatment available to men and women who wanted a more refined chin and streamlined neck.
For people who either don't want or are not good candidates for a surgical approach, KYBELLA injections represent an excellent alternative.
The best candidates have relatively elastic skin that will "bounce back" once underlying fat is removed. Good candidates for KYBELLA may also be interested in CoolSculpting®, a treatment that uses intense cold to eliminate fat in a double chin and elsewhere. If you have excess or loose neck skin or jowls, you may be a better candidate for a neck lift.
A Customized Procedure
Dr. Taylor customizes the KYBELLA treatments based on your specific needs. She administers KYBELLA injections in a series of treatment sessions that each include several injections. Most patients see optimal results after 2 to 4 treatments, scheduled a month apart.
Because KYBELLA is minimally invasive, there are no major activity restrictions after a treatment. You may have some swelling and redness at the injection sites, but these signs are temporary.
In the weeks following your treatment, fat will begin to diminish. More treatment sessions typically produce a stronger result, leaving you with a refined profile and slimmer look.
