Boost Your Confidence
Do you have excess fat underneath your chin that creates a bulge and causes you to feel self-conscious about your appearance? At Naperville’s John Bull Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Medispa, we offer injectable Kybella® for Western Chicago-area women and men who want to tighten and elevate this problematic area of the lower face without surgical intervention or downtime. The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, which is found naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat in the digestive system. Kybella® is the first treatment of its kind in the aesthetic industry, and it was extensively tested by the FDA for both safety and efficacy prior to its approval. A series of two to four treatment sessions is typically recommended for maximum results, which can be discussed with our medical team—along with Kybella® cost, side effects, and more—during your consultation.
A Slimmer Look
The area beneath the chin, also referred to as the submental area, can accumulate excess fat and create the appearance of a double chin. In a recent study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly 70 percent of men and women reported feeling dissatisfied with the look of this area due to having a noticeable bulge. Submental fullness can be caused by multiple factors, including the natural aging process, weight gain, and genetics. Though having a double chin is a common condition, it can be difficult to slim down—even with a commitment to dieting and exercise. This is where Kybella® fat-reduction treatments come in. The deoxycholic acid in the Kybella® disrupts the fat cells, leading to their breakdown and a resulting slimmer look.

Most Effective Results
Every treatment plan at the John Bull Center starts with a consultation, which allows the patient to share specific concerns and get answers to questions. It also serves as the starting point for an aesthetic plan, with information gleaned during the consultation used to determine which treatments would be most effective at delivering the results the patient wants.
This is an especially important step for submental fullness, because the look of a double chin—while typically the fault of excess fat cells—can also be caused by lax skin, which requires a different treatment. The Kybella® session itself is brief, lasting about 15 to 20 minutes. Your specially trained injector will make multiple injections directly into the submental area, using advanced techniques to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. At the John Bull Center, we use the vibrating NUEVIBE™ device to “distract” the brain from the sensation of the needle entering the skin. Patients with particular concerns over how the injection process will feel can bring this up during their consultation.

Ideal Kybella® patients are those who are dissatisfied with the look of their chin and neck due to a pocket of bulging fat in the area. Beyond that, it is important that those interested in the injections are healthy and at—or at least near—their ideal body weight. Gaining or losing significant weight after a successful Kybella® treatment can change the look of the results.
Since deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body, it typically carries no complications in patients who qualify for the treatment. Slight bruising, swelling, and redness may develop at the Kybella® injection sites, but these typically fade after a day or so. Patients tend to see slimming results after two to four Kybella® injection sessions, each spaced about a month apart. Some achieve their desired effect after six visits.
Another non-surgical fat-reduction option at the John Bull Center is CoolSculpting®, which has a special applicator used to freeze unwanted fat cells in the submental area, prompting a gradual reduction in volume. Lax skin can be treated with ThermiTight, a minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to contract loose tissue and encourage collagen production. Patients who want a more dramatic and faster-appearing result than possible with Kybella® can choose liposuction. This surgery involves Dr. John Bull making small incisions in the target area and suctioning out fat for a naturally sculpted look. Surgical removal of excess skin in the lower face and neck area is a common part of facelift surgery.
Board-certified and highly accomplished plastic surgeon Dr. John Bull is not just committed to providing beautiful cosmetic surgery results in a safe and comforting environment. He also wants every patient to feel heard, understood, and confident in their choice.Learn More
