If you have developed a double chin, you’ve probably tried everything to get rid of it. When diet and exercise fail to give you the aesthetic results you are after, it may be time to try Kybella®. Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics offers this effective, minimally invasive treatment to patients looking to eliminate submental fullness. We welcome residents from Lumberton, Sanford, Fayetteville, and the surrounding areas of North Carolina.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that reduces fat along the chin and jawline (often called a double chin). Many men and women notice fat accumulating under the chin despite a healthy lifestyle. Some individuals have a hereditary predisposition to developing a double chin, some naturally retain too much water in the chin area, and others naturally store excess fat in the neck. A double chin can also simply be a result of aging.
How Does Kybella® Help with Double Chin Reduction?
Kybella® eliminates a double chin by dissolving fat pouches. It is comprised of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to break down fat. When injected underneath the chin, it immediately begins to break down fat in the neck to sculpt your ideal profile and help you look slimmer without the use of surgery.
How is Kybella® Administered?
Kybella® is performed by making a few small injections underneath the chin and in the neck area. Although this process is typically well-tolerated, we offer a topical anesthetic to help minimize any discomfort during treatment. The injection process only takes a few minutes, so patients can expect their appointment to be complete within 30 minutes.
What is Recovery Like Following Kybella®?
After your treatment, you may experience some bruising or redness in the treated areas. These effects typically fade on their own within a few days, and do not interfere with your ability to perform normal activities. You can return to work and other regular activities immediately after treatment as there is no downtime necessary.
When Will I See Results from Kybella®?
Although some patients will notice results after one treatment, most patients need between two and four treatments to achieve their desired results.After full results have been achieved, no further treatment is necessary. The fat cells in the neck are permanently destroyed as a result of treatment, so patients can enjoy long-lasting fat reduction as a result.
