Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable product made from a patented blend of deoxycholic acid and organic ingredients designed to address excess fat deposits beneath the chin, which is frequently referred to as a “double chin” and known medically as submental fat. Deoxycholic acid already exists naturally in your body, and its role is to aid in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. This ability is what allows Kybella® to eliminate unwanted chin fat without forcing you to endure the discomfort, risks and long recovery times that come with plastic surgery.
Many people struggle with a double chin because the area does not respond easily to exercise or diet. Genetics and the structure of your face can also make you more likely to have a double chin, and in this case, no amount of exercise, skin care or dieting will prevent or minimize it. In addition, aging can also cause or worsen a double chin. Skin becomes looser with age, causing it to sag. The body’s tendency to store fat and hold onto it stubbornly also increases with age. Fortunately, Kybella® offers a solution to this common issue that affects the lives of millions of men and women.
Why Have Kybella®?
There are many reasons to consider Kybella® treatment to remove extra fat below the chin, commonly known as a “double chin”:
· The procedure is fast, simple and comfortable, and no anesthesia is required.
· It can improve the contours of your face, helping you look slimmer and more youthful.
· It has a high rate of satisfaction among patients.
· No recovery time is necessary after the procedure.
· No maintenance treatments are needed.
What to Expect in a Consultation
Before you can undergo treatment with Kybella®, you must first schedule a consultation. You will be evaluated to determine the extent of your double chin, listen to your goals for the procedure, address any questions or concerns you might have and determine if you would be an ideal candidate.
Prior to the procedure, your face will be cleaned and a topical numbing agent will be applied to your skin if you desire it. However, many patients do not find the topical anesthetic to be necessary. Your provider will then strategically inject carefully measured amounts of Kybella® to guarantee consistent, natural-looking results. This can all be done in as little as half an hour.
