Are you bothered by your double chin? Does your chin make you look heavier, despite the fact that you’re eating a healthy diet and exercising? Moderate to severe submental fat – the fat deposits located under your chin – can easily make someone feel self-conscious and frustrated. What’s more, chin fat can be difficult to target, as many people have to lose a significant amount of weight to see any results.
What is Kybella?
Approved by the FDA in April of 2015, Kybella is a brand-new non-invasive treatment now available at Accent Plastic Surgery. Kybella injections contain deoxycholic acid, a synthetic form of a natural molecule found within the body. When injected into the submental fat, deoxycholic acid eats away at the fat cells, which are absorbed by the body over time. Kybella is innovative in that, when injected properly, all healthy cells and tissues are left untouched by the acid.
Kybella can be customized to treat moderate to severe submental chin fat. Most individuals will need two to four Kybella injections to see results; after the final treatment, results will be permanent, provided you maintain your current weight.
Kybella has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates, since many individuals find their facial profiles transformed by this treatment.
Side effects from Kybella treatments are usually minor; most clients will only experience slight swelling and bruising at the injection site. Some patients may have some redness or a feeling of firmness in the treatment area.
