Non-surgical Solution for a Double Chin KYBELLA/ (deoxycholic acid)
Kybella is a non-surgical procedure used to treat fat cells that can accumulate under the chin (submental fullness) as we age. Many patients feel the excess tissue can make them look older or heavier than they are, even when they exercise and eat well. Kybella uses a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. After using Kybella, cells no longer store the accumulated fat in the injected area. Kybella is administered using several, tiny injections into the tissue beneath the chin.
Without any downtime, Kybella is an excellent solution as patients are able to go about their normal daily routine immediately following the procedure. Some patients will experience short term redness, swelling or bruising at the injection site. Most patients see results after one to three procedures. Some patients with excessive fat accumulation may need additional treatments. Treatments are given at least one month apart. Dr. Becker will determine the best approach to tailor the treatment to address your specific condition.
