Chin Fat Reduction
Excess fat along the chin and jawline is a common problem for many men and women. Unfortunately, this area of the face is also often one of the most difficult parts of the body to lose fat. This makes it difficult to achieve your ideal facial shape and profile despite a healthy lifestyle. Now there is Kybella, a non-surgical method of reducing fat beneath the chin to help sculpt your facial contours.
How does Kybella work?
Facial liposuction has always been a popular method of reducing excess fat and improving facial contours for a more youthful and chiseled appearance. However, not everyone is ready to commit to surgery with many individuals more interested in a non-surgical option. Unlike laser or ultrasound treatments, Kybella is a one-of-a-kind injectable treatment approved by the FDA for tackling problem submental fat (fat beneath the chin). Many men and women seek out Kybella for reducing the appearance of a double chin.
Kybella works due to the active ingredient known as deoxycholic acid. This substance has been proven both safe and effective for dissoloving fat below the chin. When you come in for your Kybella treatment at Indiana Plastic Surgery, your board-certified plastic surgeon will carefully mark the injection sites and describe the process to you in detail. Any questions you may have about Kybella can be answered prior to your treatment during your consultation.
A typical Kybella treatment should last no longer than 15-20 minutes and you will be able to continue your normal routine afterwards with little to no downtime. Your board certified plastic surgeon may recommend a series of up to six individual sessions (spaced a month apart) for the best results and maximum treatment of the problem fat.
When can I expect to see results after a Kybella treatment?
It is important to realize that the effects of Kybella are not immediate. It may take up to six treatments to notice the full effect of your procedure. However, 80 percent of patients see a significant reduction in excess fat beneath their chins after their fourth Kybella treatment. Once the submental fat has been treated, it will not come back. You can maintain long-lasting results with a healthy lifestyle.
