You work out and eat right, so why won’t that extra bit of fat under your chin go away? Many men and women struggle with submental fat despite an overall healthy lifestyle. The problem is caused by factors such as age or genetics, which can make this stubborn fat resistant to traditional weight loss methods. Kybella is a non-surgical treatment offered by Dr. Will to help combat excess fat beneath the chin to refine your facial contours and flatten your double chin.
How is Kybella performed?
Kybella is an injectable treatment that uses a bio-acid known as deoxycholic acid to safely eliminate problem submental fat. Dr. Will uses a specially-created template to mark precise injection locations along the underside of your chin and jawline. These injection sites are designed to achieve an even reduction of fat and a natural outcome.
After Your Kybella Treatment
Once your injections are completed, your chin will feel numb, and it is normal to experience some swelling and redness of the treatment site. However, these effects should fade within a day or two and most patients are able to return to their normal routine with little to no downtime. You could have your Kybella treatment with Dr. Will on a Friday, enjoy your weekend, and be back to work the following Monday.
After about a month, you will begin noticing a slimming of your chin as your body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells. Depending on the amount of fat you have beneath your chin, Dr. Will may recommend one or two additional Kybella sessions to achieve optimal results. The final results of your Kybella treatment will typically occur between 3-6 months after treatment. Your chin will be significantly slimmer and well-toned, resulting in a healthier and often younger appearance.
Kybella can help reduce submental fat and slim down your double chin. If you would like more information about Kybella or are ready to schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Will, please contact Will Surgical Arts in Ijamsville, Maryland.
