Having a double chin is something a lot of us suffer from. While neck and facial exercises do reduce the prominence of a double chin, they are slow-acting solutions that aren’t always the best answer to the problem.

Luckily, medical science has led to the creation of a stunning new injectable that can dissolve the fat that accumulates in our chin, effectively getting rid of our double chin for good. Introducing Kybella, the cosmetic injectable we’ve all been waiting for.

Kybella – The New Route To A Beautiful Face

Our body produces a chemical called deoxycholic acid which helps absorb unwanted fat back into the body by breaking down the fat cells in the food we eat, ensuring that we don’t store this fat in our own fat cells.

But when this chemical is produced in less quantity, it hinders the body’s ability to disintegrate and re-absorb the fat. This can lead to an increase in fat deposits in our body, which make us appear bloated and fat.

The formation of a double chin is a result of the lack of deoxycholic acid. By using Kybella, you can easily get rid of the unwanted fat concentration in the chin and contour the chin to give your face a more beautiful shape. At The J. Parry Clinic for Facial Plastic Surgery, we have extensive experience providing Kybella treatments.

How Does The Kybella Treatment Work?

Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment that is a non-surgical and minimally-invasive solution that is designed to get rid of submental fat. This is the best alternative to other body contouring and fat removal procedures like liposuction and fat transfers. It is the perfect treatment for those who cannot or do not wish to undergo an invasive surgical treatment to remove their double chin.

The Kybella treatment starts with the consultation where our medical practitioner will evaluate your face and identify the extensiveness of the treatment to be provided. Next, he will mark the areas of the chin that will be treated and prepare you for the procedure.

Since the Kybella injectable is non-surgical and minimally-invasive, no anesthesia will be necessary. The solution is injected into the areas of the chin where there is excess fat. The number of injections used will depend on your unique needs and your doctor’s discretion.

Kybella injectables are skin-friendly and don’t cause any infections in patients who use it. You may feel a slight prick when the treatment is first injected, but this pain goes away within minutes. The entire treatment takes less than an hour and downtime is just 10-15 minutes, ensuring that you can get back to your normal routine in no time.

You may experience minor tenderness and swelling, but these reduce within a few hours. You may also experience slight pain when swallowing, which lasts for a day. Ice helps reduce these symptoms and you can begin icing the treated area almost immediately.

The results of the Kybella treatment start showing at the three-week mark and you’ll begin to notice a significant difference in the size of your double chin. Your skin will also feel more elastic and strong post-treatment.
