If you shy away from cameras because of your double chin, you are not alone. We always want to look our best, but it can be hard when we have excess fat underneath the chin and jaw. This excess fat, known as “submental fullness,” can cause individuals to lose definition of their jawline and look heavier than they really are in photos with friends and family. At Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery, we are excited to offer our patients solutions that do not require surgery, such as Kybella.
What is Kybella and how does it work?
Our associates describe Kybella as a treatment for unwanted fat in the neck area that is achieved with a series of precision injections in the area. Kybella is formulated with deoxycholic acid, a molecule that is naturally occurring in the human body. It breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When this formula is injected into submental fullness, it allows the deoxycholic acid to destroy fat cells, eliminating them entirely. The result? A more defined neck and chin area and less fat!
How many treatments of Kybella do I need?
Our physicians at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery customize Kybella treatments for each individual patient to provide optimum results. The number of treatments needed will depend on the severity of the submental fullness, the patient’s current chin projection, and the patient’s response to the injections with time. In most cases, patients will benefit from anywhere from 2 to 4 treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart. This allows time for the treatment to work, as the results are gradual. Many patients love the natural transition and enjoy results without having to have “work done.”
How do I know if Kybella is right for me?
