Losing weight from any particular area of the body can be difficult but is practically impossible when the fat that needs to be lost is in and around the chin area. Dr. Steinbrech offers a modern revolutionary treatment that removes fat cells from beneath the chin. This treatment is known as Kybella. A simple injection can reduce your chin fat and is especially beneficial to anyone who suffers from a double chin (also called submental fullness). It’s actually the only nonsurgical procedure for removing fat that’s been approved by the FDA.
A double chin can occur for several reasons but typically occurs in people who are aging or because of genetics. The most common reason is simply due to serious weight gain. Fat that has accumulated around the chin can gradually subside if a person loses weight, whereas Kybella provides immediate results. There are a myriad of benefits from Kybella for double chin, the primary one being that it can vastly improve your appearance, which can further assist by giving you a substantial boost to your confidence.
Afterward, feel free to return to your normal activities while basking in your newly sculpted chin profile. Remember, this effective procedure requires a personalized treatment plan from an experienced cosmetic surgeon for the best results.
What Is Kybella?
The procedure for Kybella is simple. Like dermal fillers, this cosmetic treatment takes the form of a series of injections. A synthetic version of deoxycholic acid is injected directly into the fat deposits underneath your chin. In general, you can achieve optimal results after just two to four sessions, although six may be required. A single session may involve anywhere from 12 to 20 injections of deoxycholic acid. While this is the average range of injections needed per visit, the number of shots is customized based on the needs of the patient. The needle is relatively small, so there’s no need to feel anxiety over the procedure.
Due to the simplified nature of the treatment, as it’s nonsurgical, an entire session lasts a mere 10–15 minutes, although it may take a bit longer if any complications arise. This is a very short amount of time for such a rewarding procedure. This procedure is performed in a standard office with an exam chair.
Once the deoxycholic acid is injected into the body, it will slowly dissolve the excess fat cells around that area to help alleviate submental fullness without chin liposuction. The fat dissolves to form fatty acids, which are reabsorbed and eventually eliminated from the body.
Who Are the Best Candidates for Kybella?
Most people are good candidates for this procedure, primarily because it’s nonsurgical. The best candidates are anyone between the ages of 20 and 40 who wants to improve their facial profile and have realistic aesthetic goals. You should have a good skin tone but shouldn’t have an excess of skin laxity. Anyone with a full central and upper neck and minimal amounts of loose skin is perfect for Kybella. Importantly, anyone with an infection in the treatment area should not consider Kybella until the infection has cleared up.
In addition to its efficacy in treating submental fullness, Kybella for belly fat is a viable option too. Like its application for chin fat, the synthetic deoxycholic acid targets and dissolves fat cells in the abdominal area, offering a nonsurgical option for body contouring.
If you’re interested in this procedure but don’t fall exactly into the spectrum of the best candidate, just get in touch with us and we’ll determine whether it’s right for you. Moreover, some people may be suitable for surgical procedures like a neck lift. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will give you a complete list of your cosmetic treatment options.
Is Anesthesia Required for Kybella?
The first session always causes the most discomfort, averaging 3–4 out of 10 on the pain scale. The slight discomfort typically subsides after a few minutes and should be even less painful in subsequent sessions. Anesthesia is not required as Kybella is a nonsurgical injectable treatment, but your surgeon can numb the area before the injections if you would prefer that.
When Can I Expect to See Results from Kybella?
In general, you should expect to see the finished results about four weeks after the initial treatment.
Recovery from Kybella
When it comes to the healing process after Kybella, there’s usually not much to recover from since this is not a surgical procedure, unlike a neck lift. There are a variety of ways in which you can treat the mild discomfort caused by the injections, including everything from numbing shots and numbing cream to pain-relieving pills and ice. An injection of tumescent lidocaine may help.
After the treatment takes place, you may experience some redness and some degrees of swelling for a day or two. However, most people will be able to undertake their daily activities and even return to work on the very same day that the treatment takes place. Despite this, you should wait at least one day before returning to exercise and some of the more strenuous activities that you commonly partake in. If your job requires you to do strenuous work on a consistent basis, consider taking a day off before going back to work and doing your regular daily activities.
The amount of downtime you will experience is at its worst after the first session. You may have to stay home from work for a day because of the soreness and redness due to the injections, but this doesn’t mean that the next session will require you to do the same. Some of the possible side effects associated with this procedure may get in the way of any social activities you have planned for at most a few days following the injections.
Potential Risks and Complications of Kybella
As with any type of procedure, there are some potential risks and complications with the injections. These risks are minimal because the treatment is nonsurgical, but there are still some that you should be aware of. Common side effects of Kybella include swelling, bruising, numbness, pain, and roughness around the injection site.
One of the more serious side effects that you should be aware of is the remote possibility that an injury could occur around the marginal mandibular nerve. This nerve basically controls a person’s smile and other facial expressions. If an injection site is too close to the nerve, it may become slightly damaged. This will cause temporary facial muscle weakness, and the person’s smile may be off-balance for a time. The uneven smile will resolve itself soon enough. Note that this is just a potential side effect. It is exceedingly rare, and its effects will dissipate over time.
Aside from these risks and complications, there’s nothing else you should worry about when considering Kybella. If you’re a good candidate for the procedure, you will almost certainly get satisfactory results after two to four treatments.
*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
The Average Cost of Kybella
The cost of Kybella can vary significantly based on location, the expertise of the cosmetic surgeon, and the complexity of the treatment plan. On average, each session can cost from $1,200 to $1,800. Considering that most patients require just two or three sessions for optimal fat reduction, this is a good investment in your youthful appearance and renewed chin profile. Health insurance will generally not cover the cost as it’s considered a cosmetic procedure.
