If you have stubborn fat underneath your chin that is giving you the appearance of a double chin, you may be interested in trying Kybella. Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that can eliminate your double chin and give you are sleeker and more defined chin and jawline. Balikian Facial Plastic Surgery offers Kybella injections for men and women who are struggling to get rid of their double chin.
What Is Kybella?
KYBELLA is an injectable drug specifically designed to target submental fat. Submental fat refers to the fat that gathers underneath the chin and jawline that can diminish the definition of the chin and jaw and create the appearance of a double chin. Some people are genetically predisposed to accumulating submental fat more easily than others and also struggle to get rid of fat underneath the chin even if they exercise and adhere to a strict diet.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH KYBELLA
Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
How is KYBELLA administered?
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
How many KYBELLA treatment sessions will I need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.
What Is the Cost of Kybella
The cost of your Kybella treatment will depend on the number of treatment sessions needed to attain your desired results.
Will I need time to recover?
After KYBELLA treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin.
We advise patients to avoid using blood thinning medications such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen or Omega-3 Fish Oils for one week before any injection to help decrease the risk of bruising. In addition, avoiding alcohol a few nights before injection and taking the herbal medication arnica may help decrease the risk of bruising which is minimal.
