If you’re looking to get rid of excess submental fat, or fullness beneath the chin (double chin), Kybella may be an excellent treatment for you.
Submental fullness or excess fat beneath the chin is a major cosmetic concern for more than two-thirds of the American population. It can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, aging, and weight gain, causing you to appear heavier and/or older than you actually are. Unfortunately, diet and exercise are usually not enough to get rid of unwanted fat beneath the skin.
But with Kybella, the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment, you can physically destroy fat cells in this area, permanently preventing any future fat buildup under your chin and improving the appearance.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved deoxycholic acid injection that is indicated for improving the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness or convexity due to submental fat in adults.
How is the treatment given
Kybella is administered in the doctor’s office in 15-30 minutes under topical anesthesia. The treatment is simple and virtually painless. Patients typically have a customized treatment plan of 2-4 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart, depending on your individual treatment goals.
Is Kybella right for me?
Dr. Fakheri may recommend Kybella to anyone over 18 years who’s bothered by submental fullness or fat under the chin, which won’t go away with dieting and exercise. It is a great alternative to surgical procedures as there is minimal downtime.
