Few other facial conditions cause as much cosmetic concern as a double chin. When turtlenecks and scarves just won’t do, there’s Kybella®. If you’ve tried everything but you’re still uncomfortable with the appearance of fat under your chin, and surgery is out of the question, there is hope. The team at Garza Plastic Surgery is proud to offer this minimally-invasive, non-surgical solution.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a medication prescribed to treat individuals who suffer from submental fullness, more commonly known as a double chin. The active ingredient in the product is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule. Administered in the form of injectable treatments, Kybella® is a safe and effective, FDA-approved option to destroy fat cells.
Does It Really Work?
If achieving a more contoured facial profile is your goal, Kybella® could be your answer. Whether you have tried losing weight or hiding behind clothing, you’ve probably discovered there is little that can be done to get rid of stubborn submental fat. However, studies show that 70% of Kybella® users noted an improvement.
How is the Product Administered?
Through a series of injections, Kybella® works to dissolve the fat pockets that create the double chin appearance. These injections not only destroy fat, but they will eliminate the formation of future cells.
What to Expect
The team will begin with a personalized assessment to determine your specific wants and needs. Then, based on the amount of fat you desire to remove and other factors, a plan of care, as well as the number of injections, will be recommended. A series of treatment sessions is usually required to eliminate a double chin.
Since this treatment is non-surgical, there is no real downtime. The result is a smooth and slim chin line. While the results are not immediate, they are long-lasting.
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
If you’ve never considered a cosmetic treatment, this alternative to surgery or liposuction may just be the solution for you. If you desire a more youthful appearance, you could be a good candidate for Kybella®. If you desire a permanent solution to unwanted fat beneath your chin, the treatment is most likely for you. You just need to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and results.
