Following Kybella® treatment, stubborn fat below the chin (submental fat) is permanently eliminated.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable treatment containing deoxycholic acid. This molecule occurs naturally in the body, playing a key role in breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. Following Kybella® treatment, submental fat is permanently eliminated. Each Kybella® treatment plan is customized to the patient, and will consist of one to six treatment sessions, scheduled at least one month apart.
Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?
If you feel self-conscious about a double chin, but do not wish to undergo liposuction or a neck lift, Kybella® may be the right solution for you. Before recommending this treatment, Dr. Smart will assess your health, as well as your medical history. Be prepared to discuss the following items with Dr. Smart:
- If you have undergone any form of facial surgery, or plan to in the future.
- If you ever have trouble swallowing.
- If you have had any medical conditions affecting the neck area.
- If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant.
- Any bleeding issues.
Based on the information gathered during your consultation, Dr. Smart can determine if you are a good candidate for Kybella®. While this treatment has been proven effective in eliminating submental fat, it cannot address loose skin. If aging and other factors have resulted in excess skin beneath the chin, surgery may be the only way to restore a more youthful profile.
What Can Kybella® Do for Me?
Kybella® underwent extensive clinical trials before being approved for use in the United States. Following those trials, 79 percent of patients said they felt satisfied with the results. Those patients reported experiencing boosted self-esteem, in addition to feeling rejuvenated and happier as a result of an improved chin profile.
If you feel that your double chin is making you look heavier than you are, or simply less confident in your appearance, studies indicate that this treatment can provide you with both physical and emotional benefits.
