Do you have fat below your chin giving you the appearance of a double chin? Kybella may be the non-surgical solution you are looking for to enhance your facial profile and rejuvenate your appearance.
Whether you have severe fat beneath your chin or just enough to make you feel self-conscious, Kybella can improve your profile to fit your needs. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for fat reduction and it can help you obtain a younger-looking facial contour in just 20 minutes!
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are experiencing a sagging neck due to aging or excess fat beneath the chin and you are 18 years or older, you may be a candidate for Kybella treatment. You must also be in good health and a non-smoker. Kybella is a great option for patients who are not candidates for surgical procedures or those who do not wish to receive surgery.
How is a Kybella Procedure Performed?
Kybella injections use synthetic deoxycholic acid to break down and absorb the fat below your chin. Deoxycholic acid naturally destroys fat cells in the body so there is minimal risk of an allergic reaction from Kybella treatment sessions. Dr. Basile will administer several small injections beneath your chin based on your need and desired end results. Once injected and the fat cells are destroyed, your body can no longer store fat below your chin. This means that your results are long-lasting!
Results and Recovery
It is important to select a board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Basile because the injections must be carefully placed around your nerves. It is common to experience swelling, bruising, redness, and some pain after your treatment, but these typically subside within a few days. As mentioned, since the fat cells are permanently destroyed, you will not need further treatment after your procedure. However, the initial treatment may require a series of multiple treatments, depending on your aesthetic goals and the amount of excess fat in the treatment area. Kybella is truly the best solution for the non-invasive, long-lasting removal of your double chin.
