If you constantly notice that your double chin in photos, Kybella might be your solution. This noninvasive procedure gets the same results as liposuction without having surgery. The procedure takes only minutes in the office and you can drive yourself there and back. Many of our patients come on their lunch break and return to work immediately afterwards. Kybella is a popular double chin reduction treatment among both men and women.
For men, a strong jaw-line is associated with the appearance of being strong, masculine, powerful, and charming. For women, removing this pocket of fat below the chin helps create a more oval facial outline which looks young, sophisticated, and beautiful. The ROXY Plastic Surgery team recently performed a Kybella procedure on Snapchat which highlights just how simple this procedure is.
Kybella is a chemical called Deoxycholic Acid which digest the fat in your chin area the same way we digest and absorb fat in our intestines. It’s an engineered chemical so there is no animal use or risk of rejecting the injections. The chemical is programmed to digest the fat cells specifically so they get reabsorbed by the body naturally. Because this chemical is acidic, patients feel a slight burning sensation during the procedure and for the next day.
There is no pain with this procedure and the recovery involves mild bruising and a burning sensation for 1-2 days. Two to three treatments may be necessary for the full results and they can be performed about 6 weeks apart. Almost all patients see a result with the first treatment. Kybella is safe for all skin types, making it an ideal treatment for patients.
If your life doesn’t allow recovery time of liposuction or surgery, Kybella will be your answer. It’s easy to just swing by the office for your injections and then continue on with your other activities. You can watch your chin and neck fat melt away as you carry on with your life!
