KYBELLA®: An Effective Non-Surgical Treatment for a Double Chin
Developments in plastic surgery have recently led to the approval of a new injectable drug known as KYBELLA®. KYBELLA® can effectively eliminate a double chin without any surgery in as little as one treatment. This new treatment, already highly in demand, is now offered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Benjamin Schlechter and can give you a more attractive, defined, and slender neckline.
Causes of a Double Chin
A double chin is a colloquial term referring to excess fat or fullness beneath the chin. This area, known as the submental region, can accumulate fat that resists exercise and dieting. The most common causes of submental fullness are weight gain, genetics, and aging. Unfortunately for many individuals, a double chin makes them look older, overweight, and less attractive. In fact, in a 2015 consumer survey on cosmetic dermatologic procedures by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67 percent of survey respondents indicated that they were bothered by excess fat under their chin.
How KYBELLA® Works
KYBELLA® is a treatment designed to eliminate submental fullness and restore a smoother, thinner neckline. As an injectable drug, KYBELLA® works like many other injectables. Patients come in for treatment and receive KYBELLA® injections directly beneath the chin. After a short 20-minute treatment, patients can return to their normal activities. Patients will experience swelling for a few days to a week. Over the following four to six weeks, KYBELLA® breaks down the persistent fat cells, and the lymphatic system flushes them out of the body. Within just a few weeks after the treatment, most patients will see noticeable results. Patients will typically require at least two and possibly up to six treatments with KYBELLA®, after which the results will be permanent. KYBELLA® permanently eliminates a double chin without surgery and can help you achieve a more youthful, slender, and attractive appearance.
