The result is clearly seen with a loss of fat under the chin.
Often times, for hereditary reasons, weight gain, or simply with age, a double chin forms when subcutaneous fat sags and causes a wrinkle under the chin, around the neck. Kybella® is a non-invasive, simple and almost pain free procedure that - after a few treatments - can completely eliminate fat, restoring a more youthful appearance and profile.
A first meeting with Dr. Brady is important in order to provide an estimate on how many treatments are needed. This is contingent on the amount of fat under the chin. The procedure is very fast, and can be finished within thirty minutes.
- This procedure is completely non-invasive. It requires a simple lidocaine shot, which numbs the area and then multiple small injections of under your chin. The procedure lasts about twenty to thirty minutes.
- The procedure is always administered by a Kybella® trained healthcare specialist.
- The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. Kybella®, once injected under the skin, actually eliminates fat cells, creating a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. These cells can no long store fat, so once the desired appearance is reached, no further treatment is needed.
The individual may experience some swelling, bruising and mild discomfort for up to three days after the procedure.
