Why patients choose Kybella to treat their double chin
- Posted on: Apr 15 2020
Do you have a double chin in all of your social media photos with friends? Do you feel the excess fat underneath the chin makes you look heavier than you really are? Are you always avoiding having photos taken when you’re out with friends? If this sounds like you, Dr. Valerie Callender encourages you to consider the benefits of non-surgical treatment for submental fullness: Kybella injections.
How does Kybella work?
When patients think of cosmetic procedures, their minds often turn to plastic surgery. While plastic surgery can be used in certain situations, it is not the only way to address issues with the face and body. With continued advances in dermatological solutions and medicine, we now have an injection that can replace liposuction and neck lifts. Kybella is an injectable formulated with deoxycholic acid. This element in Kybella works at breaking down fat cells in the area it is injected. These destroyed fat cells are then naturally flushed out of the body to provide a tighter jowl and reducing the appearance of a double chin. Kybella is approved by the FDA for treatment of submental fullness, and continues to be a more conservative approach than conventional plastic surgeries.
What can I expect from Kybella?
It is vital that patients understand that the results from Kybella occur over the course of several weeks. This is because the medication destroys the fat cells which are removed from the body through the lymphatic system. Patients seeking more immediate results are better suited for plastic surgery, though this approach may be best for those with mild to moderate submental fullness. During an evaluation, our team can determine if Kybella is right for a patient and fits their needs.
