Are you unhappy or self-conscious about the fat under your chin? Do you feel that it makes you look heavier or older than you really are? Have you tried diets and exercise and still nothing seems to work? We have a solution, and it doesn’t involve surgery or extensive downtime. It is called Kybella®, and it is a breakthrough treatment that can help you get rid of that fat under the chin, also known as submental fat, for good. Here at Garza Plastic Surgery, we know what it is like to not look and feel your best, and we strive to help you change that. So, what is Kybella®?
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved prescription medicine used to improve the appearance of what is commonly known as a double chin. This injectable treatment is proven to destroy fat cells in the area under the chin or the submental area.
How Does Kybella® Work?
The product contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This is a substance that your body naturally makes to help break down and absorb fat. However, the body does not always produce enough of this to eliminate all of your submental fat. Kybella® can be injected directly into the site and immediately starts working to destroy the fat cells in the area. Once these cells are destroyed, they can longer store or accumulate fat. So once you have reached your desired aesthetic goal, no further treatment will be needed.
What is the Treatment Like?
Your treatments can only be given to you by a registered and specifically trained specialist. During this treatment, you will receive injections underneath your chin. The number of treatments you will need will depend on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and also what your personal profile goals are. The results are gradual, which helps them to look natural.
