Kybella in Charleston with Dr. David Rodwell

Kybella is the newest non-surgical option for reducing a double chin. It involves a series of injections to dissolve unwanted fat pads below the chin. Dr. Rodwell believes Kybella to be an excellent option for patients with good skin elasticity who want a slender neck contour with less downtime. 

For some individuals, neck liposuction or FaceTite may be more suitable. For patients dealing with neck bands, or excess skin, a Necklift or a facelift may be their best option. The goal is to restore a taut, youthful neck contour that will complement facial beauty.

During your consultation, Dr. Rodwell will assess your neck features to determine if neck liposuction or Kybella injections alone are sufficient to provide the result you want.

Kybella the Investment

You invest in your future – now invest in your facial beauty. Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat pads under the chin to gradually improve your profile —for mild to moderate neck fullness.

Why Consider Kybella?

With non-surgical alternatives becoming a trend in aesthetics, cosmetic injections are becoming the rage with patients who have little time for surgery. Kybella is a minimally invasive injection that can:

  • Eliminate a double chin
  • Remove excess fat in the neck
  • Provide a sharper more defined jawline

Kybella is perfect for individuals who want to improve their neck contour safely with little to no downtime.

Dr. Rodwell’s Approach to Kybella

You should choose a physician trained in the latest techniques and indications appropriate for this new treatment. Dr. David Rodwell, with his extensive knowledge of face and neck anatomy, is well versed in other options that may be more appropriate for your aesthetic concerns (like a necklift or neck liposuction).

Dr. Rodwell will administer a series of injections below the chin and jawline. He performs Kybella treatments in his private office in historic downtown Charleston. With discreet parking and a rear entrance, you will enjoy the stress-free atmosphere that will put you right at ease.

We apply a topical numbing cream to reduce any discomfort you may experience. Dr. Rodwell will determine the proper dosage and injection location according to your concerns and desired goals. Most patients require two to four sessions spaced about six weeks apart.

Kybella FAQs

How does Kybella work?

Kybella consists of deoxycholic acid, a substance that targets fat cells directly. When Kybella is injected into excess fat beneath the chin, it destroys the fat cells to be absorbed into the body naturally and expelled.

How long does the treatment last?

A single Kybella treatment session takes about 20 minutes and requires minimal downtime.

What can I expect after Kybella?

Possible side effects include numbness, temporary swelling, and bruising. Visible results take a few weeks to realize as the active ingredient breaks down the excess fat. After injections, your results will show a subtle improvement that continues to improve with time. Once your treatment sessions are complete, results are permanent for a smoother and slimmer neck contour.
