If you’re bothered by the fullness* beneath your chin, you’re not alone.
Fortunately, KYBELLA® can help.
*KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin (submental fullness) by physically destroying fat cells.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can reduces excess fat below the chin. It is an injectable product composed of synthetic deoxycholic acid. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable technique to treat a double chin.
Who Can Get This Procedure?
The treatment can be used by anyone with excess chin fat who wants to look more attractive. The treatment is open to patients above the age of eighteen.
A consultation is carried out with Dr. Fontana beforehand in order to evaluate the patient’s general health. This will help Dr. Fontana find out if there any health conditions that would make the patient a poor candidate for the procedure.
How It Works
Kybella is made of a synthetic version of a natural acid known as deoxycholic acid. This acid is produced by bile and helps to break down fat cells. Kybella treatment is given through a series of injections in the submental region (below the chin).
The acid destroys the fat cells, which do not grow back. As the fat cells are gradually filtered out of the body, the area shrinks in volume.
The Kybella treatment procedure is done on an outpatient basis. Around 20 to 50 injections may be used. A topical numbing agent is used beforehand to prevent pain.
After the procedure, there may be minor bruising or swelling. These side effects will resolve in a week or so.
Around six treatment sessions may be required. A gap of one month between each session is recommended.
The results of Kybella appear in the form of an improved facial profile and no more double chin. The results of the procedure are long-lasting, making it a very effective treatment option.
