As we age, it is common for fat to build up on the neck and chin, creating the appearance of a double chin. While invasive surgeries can work to eliminate this issue once and for all, residents of Huntington, New York have a less invasive option available. Blaine Plastic Surgery in Huntington is proud to offer Kybella: an injectable that breaks down and eats up the fat cells in the chin and neck, eliminating the appearance of a double chin. With the fat in your neck and chin gone, you will quickly achieve a younger and more attractive appearance that lasts for years.
Kybella is made up of deoxycholic acid, which is actually an acid that is naturally produced by the body. It is FDA approved solely for the use of reducing the appearance of fat on the chin and neck areas. This totally safe ingredient is injected directly into the problem area, much like a Botox injection. Kybella immediately gets to work, eating up fat cells without causing damage to the other cell structures in the neck and chin.
After your consultation with Dr. Blaine in Huntington, NY, you will come in for your first session of Kybella. The entire procedure will only take 15-30 minutes out of your busy day. Dr. Blaine will provide the Kybella injection from the comfort of her Huntington practice. After the injection, you will be free to go about your day as normal with little to no downtime necessary. Kybella will begin doing its job of reducing the appearance of your double chin, with effects visible about four weeks after the procedure. A second session is usually recommended after four weeks to ensure maximum results.
The most common side effects reported following a Kybella injection are slight swelling and slight bruising around the injection site, which should be gone within a week after the session. Patients will be able to leave their session at Blaine Plastic Surgery in Huntington and go about their regular activities with no physical signs of the procedure.
Do you feel self-conscious about your appearance? Do you want to make a change, but don’t have the time to make a full recovery required of a surgical procedure? Is your neck and chin fat making you look years older than you feel? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may be an excellent candidate for Kybella in Huntington, NY.
