If you have fat below the chin chances are you’re frustrated by the fact that it seems to hang on stubbornly no matter what you do. Chin liposuction can sculpt the area for you, but now there is also a revolutionary new treatment called Kybella. But how do you know if you are an ideal candidate for Kybella.
Kybella is a unique injectable treatment for fat below the chin (submental fat), and that works quickly and effectively to melt away unwanted fat. Kybella is a form of deoxycholic acid, which isa naturally occurring substance that the body uses to break down and also to absorb fat.
What happens during Kybella treatment?
Your doctor will use a tiny needle to inject Kybella into multiple areas below the chin. The drug then gets to work to disrupt the membranes of the fat cells. Once the fat cells die they are removed from the body via the normal waste process.
Most patients achieve optimal results with Kybella after 2-4 sessions.
Am I an ideal candidate for Kybella?
If you struggle with excess fat below the chin aka a ‘double chin,’ and you’d rather not undergo any type of extensive surgery, you may be a good candidate for Kybella. You should also be at a healthy weight, and have realistic expectations about the treatment. Kybella can benefit patients in all age groups. However, it is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
If you’re looking for a non-surgical way to dissolve your double chin, Kybella may be the right option for you.
