Double Chin Reduction
Kybella is the first non-surgical, FDA approved treatment for severe to moderate fat under the chin. This fat is also called submental fat and is a common problem area for 68% adults in the US as per the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. Fullness below the chin can be the result of weight gain, genetics and aging. You can attain a slimmer neckline by reducing fat in this particular area. It can also help you look healthier and younger.
Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides Kybella injections for double chin reduction to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Kybella is Unique
Kybella is directly administered in the fatty area below the chin using injections. The main ingredient in Kybella mimics the way deoxycholic acid works. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring compound found in the body that absorbs fat. The fat is liquefied after treatment and then absorbed before being naturally flushed out of the body. Kybella offers long lasting results since the targeted fat cells are destroyed.
Kybella Benefits for Double Chin Reduction
These are several options with doctors for addressing double chin. However, they recommend Kybella for the following reasons:
- Treatments don’t take more than 15 minutes
- Little to almost no downtime
- Treated fat cells are permanently eliminated by Kybella injections
- Kybella offers effective results for small amounts as well as substantial amount of chin fat
- You will notice results after the first treatment
- Final results become noticeable after a few months of the treatment
- Patients generally don’t need chin liposuction surgery after getting Kybella injections
Kybella is a minimally invasive procedure with very little to no side effects. You may experience mild swelling, numbness, and bruising in the treated area after the procedure. These effects don’t last for more than a few days or weeks. Kybella procedure is performed in the office without the need for anesthesia. With that said, the results are long-lasting which means you won’t require repeat treatments for the same fat.
Kybella requires multiple treatment sessions. It takes 2 – 6 sessions in most patients for them to be pleased with results. Each treatment session will take 15 – 20 minutes and will be spaced 30 days apart. You should be able to see final results within weeks as the body processes and removes destroyed fat cells naturally. Patients can return to their usual activity after the procedure with almost no downtime.
Treating Submental Fullness
Kybella was specifically created for treating double chin. Other procedures were designed for reducing fat over larger areas of the body, such as the thighs or the belly. They are also less direct with a greater possibility of overtreatment.
For instance, liposuction is useful in removing double chin. However, there is lack of control with the procedure. Treatment providers can end up removing too much fat that may leave the neck looking hollow and aged. Kybella, in contrast, uses a small needle for injecting controlled amount of deoxycholic acid.
