Charleston Facial Plastic Surgeon Now Offering New Kybella Treatment for "Double Chins"

Dr. David Rodwell of Charleston Facial Plastic Surgery in Charleston, SC is proud to offer Kybella™, the first and only FDA-approved injectable to improve the appearance of submental fat or “double chin”.


Charleston, SC -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/04/2015 -- Dr. David Rodwell, board-certified facial plastic surgeon and founder of Charleston Facial Plastic Surgery, a plastic surgery practice located in Charleston, SC, is excited to announce that he is now offering the newest cosmetic injectable, Kybella™, a treatment for "double chins". Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved injectable that improves the profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also known as submental fat or fullness.

Kybella™ involves a series of injections to dissolve the fat over time. This is a great option for younger patients with good skin elasticity who desire improvement with less downtime. Administering Kybella™ injections should only be performed by a physician trained in the appropriate techniques and indications for this new procedure.

A series of injections are performed in the central neck below the chin and above the Adam's apple. The procedure is easily performed in the office, and some topical numbing cream can be applied if desired to reduce discomfort. The total amount of injection locations and amount of Kybella™ used will be determined by the patient and Dr. Rodwell after discussing their goals. Most patients typically need somewhere in the range of 2 to 4 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart depending on the amount of fat in the neck and each individual patient's response to the injections.

Dr. Rodwell is thrilled to offer this new "double chin" treatment to his patients. For more information on Kybella™ or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rodwell at Charleston Facial Plastic Surgery, please visit or call (843) 628-1415.
