The team of Park Meadows Aesthetics see many adult patients with unique situations they would like to resolve. Men and women who are dealing with a “double chin,” resulting from extra fat underneath the jaw area, are often embarrassed at how heavy it makes them look. The double chin, medically known as “submental fullness,” can occur on patients of any age and weight, and can even be genetic. However, with a nonsurgical solution such as Kybella injections, patients can reduce the fat cells in the area and achieve a better profile and forward-facing appearance.
What is Kybella?
Dermatologists and other medical professionals have access to a wide range of cosmetic injectables that can be used in addressing imperfections on the skin and body. Kybella is a specialized injectable that has been cleared by the FDA for the use of treating submental fullness. This injectable is formulated with deoxycholic acid, which melts away fat cells in the areas in which it is administered. Our team of Lone Tree, Colorado finds Kybella injections to be a wonderful alternative to liposuction in the chin and neck area while achieving gradual and natural-looking results.
What side effects can occur with Kybella injections?
Our doctors advise patients before treatment on the side effects that may occur with Kybella. The most typically side effects noted by patients include:
- Bruising at the injection site
- Pain and discomfort
- Hardening in treatment area
Most of these are minor and fade within a few days. However, there are some rare though serious side effects for patients to be aware of, including trouble swallowing, facial muscle weakness, and possible nerve injury to the jaw area. All of these concerns can be discussed during the initial evaluation with our doctors.
