kybella-hero-imageDr. Langsdon has added Kybella®, the newest non-surgical treatment for the “double chin” or submental fat to The Langsdon Clinic in Memphis, TN! Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by destroying fat cells. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® destroys the fat calls. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism. Kybella® does not remove excess skin.

If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):

  • 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin
  • People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes
