Do you have fat below your chin giving you the appearance of a double chin? In the hands of a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Basile, Kybella can enhance your facial profile and rejuvenate your appearance. Kybella may be the non-surgical solution you are looking for if you’re struggling to lose fat under your chin.
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently removes fat from under the chin. Using a unique blend of deoxycholic acid (a compound naturally found in the digestive system), it dissolves fat cells and achieves a more defined, contoured appearance to the jaw and chin. Although there are surgical options such as liposuction, many patients do not want to go through surgery. Kybella is one of the most popular non-surgical options for a double chin at our Jacksonville Beach medspa.
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. You must be 18 years or older to receive Kybella. 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. However, Kybella cannot tighten sagging neck skin and you may be a better candidate for a neck lift if this describes your concerns. Dr. Basile will help you explore your aesthetic options during a consultation.
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. Dr. Basile will administer several small injections beneath your chin based on your need and desired results. Once the product is 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!
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. Since the fat cells are permanently destroyed, you will not need further treatment after your procedure. However, you may require a series of multiple sessions, 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.
Dr. Basile is one of the leading aesthetic experts in the Jacksonville, FL area. With an eye for aesthetics and many years of industry experience, he can help you explore your many non-surgical options at our medspa. He will also ensure a safe and effective treatment session that achieves natural, rejuvenating results to help you capture your best self.
