Beautify Enhance Renew
Aging and weight gain can cause excess fat to develop around the face, especially under the chin. Many find this excess chin fat to be annoying and stubborn, and it often creates the appearance of a “double chin.” Even with diet and exercise, this fat seems to never go away. For this reason, many men and women opt for cosmetic options designed to address the area under the chin, such as KYBELLA®. A prescription medicine, KYBELLA® is used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat). This is a safe and effective treatment that can help patients get rid of chin fat for good. KYBELLA® patients can expect to achieve a more harmonious facial profile with improved chin contours.
Benefits of KYBELLA®
- Safe and effective
- Little discomfort
- Minimal downtime
- Permanent results
If you are bothered by stubborn submental fullness, or a “double chin,” you may be a good candidate for KYBELLA®. It is important when undergoing any cosmetic procedure to be in good health and have realistic expectations. Before undergoing KYBELLA® treatment, you should let your doctor know if you:
- Are pregnant
- Have had or currently have medical conditions in or near the chin area
- Have trouble swallowing
- Have trouble breathing
- Are breastfeeding or plan on breastfeeding
- Have had or plan on having cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin
During your consultation, Dr. Grazer can help determine if KYBELLA® is right for you.
KYBELLA® is a deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate or store in the chin area. During KYBELLA® treatment, multiple injections will be administered into the neck. Patients will notice changes in the appearance of the chin within two to four treatment sessions, although up to six sessions may be needed to achieve full results.
Recovery and Results
After each KYBELLA® session, patients can return to work and regular activities immediately.
Potential side effects of KYBELLA®:
- Hardness in the treatment area
Typically, these are all temporary side effects and alleviate quickly after KYBELLA® treatment. Overall, patients will notice a significant reduction of fat beneath the chin. They often feel confident with a slimmer, better-contoured chin area.
