Associates in Plastic Surgery is proud to offer Kybella, a new FDA-approved solution for submental fullness, more commonly known as a “double chin”. Submental fullness is a common cosmetic concern, which can have a significant impact on one’s self-esteem, especially since this unwanted fat is generally resistant to diet and exercise.
Kybella is an injectable solution of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in your body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. During your consultation, your injection specialist will determine the best treatment plan for you based on your desired changes. Most patients require 2 to 4 treatment sessions spaced no less than one month apart, but up to 6 treatments may be necessary to achieve your goals.
Once Kybella is injected into the submental fat under your chin, it instantly destroys fat cells. After the fat cells are destroyed, the cells are unable to accumulate or store additional fat. The results are long-lasting and noticeable shortly after treatment. This non-invasive procedure requires minimal downtime and is an excellent alternative to a neck lift surgery to restore the contour of your jawline.
If you are concerned by your double chin, Kybella injection treatments may be the solution you.
