Kybella: A Non-Surgical Solution for Your Double Chin
Often a hereditary condition, a “double chin” is the term used by patients to describe their mild to severe fat that has accumulated on the upper portion of their neck. Because this is usually the result of genetics, it is an extremely difficult area to trim fat on with even the strictest diet and exercise regimen. Kybella injections are an extremely popular and efficient way to get rid of any men or woman’s double chin.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment that has been approved by the FDA specifically for the use of minimizing appearances of chin and neck fat. This procedure in jectsdeoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies, into your skin,which breaks down, destroys and eats away fat. All the other cells in the neck and chin are left untouched.
Kybella is a great option because it requires little to no downtime. Each Kybella injection session lasts between fifteen and thirty minutes. To see optimal results and get rid of your double chin entirely,Dr. Blaine typically gives the injection series for a couple of sessions that are usually a month apart.
Results, Recovery and Side Effects of Kybella
Most side effects of Kybella are minor and do not need medical attention. Upon injection, your upper neck skin may become a little red and/or feel hot. While the injections absorb into the neck fat upon the completion of the procedure, you may also see bruising within the first few days (a common side effect for any type of injection into the skin). You may also feel as though fluid has collected inside of the neck, but it will subside post-treatment.
Because Kybella injections safely burn the fat on the neck, you do not have to worry about muscle freezing. Less common side effects that require medical attention include muscle weakness in your face, pounding in your ears, uneven smile, and paint in your mouth or throat.
