KYBELLA® is the first FDA approved, non-surgical injection for improving the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, commonly referred to as double chin. This is a common condition that can detract from your overall appearance and make you look older or heavier even if you are otherwise fit. Submental fullness affects men and women of all ages and can be due to a combination of factors, including aging and genetics. Very often, diet and exercise will not eliminate a double chin.
KYBELLA® is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA®causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Dr. Cohen is one of the first plastic surgeons in the Richmond area to be trained and certified to perform KYBELLA® injections. This specialized training and certification, combined with her experience and artistry as a board certified plastic surgeon, make Dr. Cohen supremely qualified to help you eliminate a double chin with KYBELLA® injections.
