A double chin can be frustrating and challenging to treat on your own. Often, no amount of exercise or diet can reduce the appearance of a double chin due to aging or genetics. Fortunately, Kybella can. Kybella is a modern, non-surgical treatment that can effectively reduce a double chin without the need for a single incision.

At SynergyMD Plastic Surgery, we look for new and cutting-edge ways to help our patients reach their goals. Whether your treatment is surgical or non-surgical, we fully tailor it to your unique needs. Contact our Tampa plastic surgery office to learn more about our line of services, and take the first step in achieving your aesthetic goals.



Kybella is a revolutionary way to treat a double chin without the need for surgery. Traditionally, treating a double chin was a challenge. Diet and exercise often have no effect on it, and surgery was the only option. But Kybella provides a safer and non-invasive alternative without sacrificing effectiveness.

Submental fullness is caused by excess fat stored under the chin, also known as the “double chin.” You may develop a double chin from weight fluctuations, genetics, hormone changes, or even aging. That is where Kybella can help as the leading FDA-approved injection treatment for submental fullness.

Kybella contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. This substance is naturally found in our digestive tract and dissolves the fat that we absorb through our diet. With a carefully designed synthetic version, we can use it to do the same to the fat in a double chin.

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 areas.

If you want to reduce a double chin, then Kybella may be right for you. Dr. Brown will assess each patient to determine if Kybella is an appropriate treatment for them. We first start with a personal consultation and a physical examination of the problem area. We take into account multiple factors, including:

  • The patient’s medical history
  • The patient’s 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. Most patients report a comfortable experience without the need for any anesthesia. Once you are comfortable, we place a marking grid under the chin, and a series of tiny injections will be carefully placed into the area of concern. A typical session lasts about half an hour, with many being even shorter. As such, there is almost no interruption to your daily routine and activities.

For most patients, a minimum of two treatments are required to obtain desired results. However, most patients will see optimal results with three or four treatments. During your consultation, Dr. Brown will let you know what you may need to reach your goals. Each patient treatment plan will vary based on Dr. Brown’s recommendations along with the patient’s desired aesthetic outcome.


Patients will experience minor swelling and redness after each set of injections. However, this is not only normal but a sign that the injections are starting to work. 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 can immediately return to normal activities and work. You do not need to worry about a lengthy recovery period or downtime, unlike with surgery.

All results are permanent, and your final results may be seen within a few months. If you have any questions or concerns after your Kybella treatment, feel free to contact us. We will gladly work with you to provide any information or assistance you need.
