Liposuction has been used for many years to remove excess fat from the body when exercise and diet have not been enough. The fat that accumulates under the chin is particularly resistant to diet and exercise, making it a very common area for liposuction. Even individuals at very healthy weights can experience issues with excess fat in this area.
While liposuction is able to effectively get rid of excess fat under the chin for many people, it does not come without its risks. First, liposuction is a surgical procedure, meaning that it comes with all of the usual risks of surgery. Second, since liposuction requires making an incision, the patient will have to deal with subsequent scarring. Third, some people have walked away from a liposuction procedure feeling unsatisfied with the results.
Thankfully, Kybella® is now available as a safe, effective alternative to liposuction to remove excess fat from under the chin. Kybella® is noninvasive and does not require surgery. This means that a person does not have to think about surgical risks, scarring, and unsatisfactory results. Patients will be able to see the excess fat under their chin disappear and feel great about the way they look.
Kybella® is an injectable formula that dissolves the fat under the chin. Several injections are needed in order to give you the best results. The amount of injections that you need will depend on the area that we are treating. During your initial consultation, we will help you get a realistic idea of how many Kybella® injections will be needed in order to help you get rid of any excess fat you would like to remove from the chin. The amount of injections needed vary from patient to patient.
The results from Kybella® begin to show gradually over time. As the solution begins to work, you will slowly see a reduction in fat in the injected areas around the face and neck. While the amount of total sessions necessary depends on the patient’s individual needs, each session itself is quick and easy, lasting only about 15 minutes.
