Individuals looking for an effective option to treat submental fat can benefit from Kybella injectable treatment at bodySCULPT®, an established plastic surgery practice in Manhattan. The plastic surgeons at this AAAASF accredited facility are experts in administering this non-surgical treatment that involves hardly any downtime. This FDA-approved breakthrough double chin injection can literally dissolve fat in the chin area to result in a more well-defined neck and jaw contour.
Submental fullness or a double chin is a major aesthetic concern among men and women. Various factors are responsible for fat build-up under the chin, such as aging, weight gain and genetics. KYBELLA is the first and only FDA approved non-surgical treatment for the reduction of submental fullness. The injection contains naturally-occurring molecules called deoxycholic acid that absorb the fat, without affecting the other cells in the area. Once injected into the fat pad under the chin, a chemical reaction occurs and fat cells are destroyed permanently.
In Kybella clinical trials, most patients reported improvement in self-perception, including feeling happier and younger, feeling less embarrassed and less bothered by submental fullness.
KYBELLA requires no anesthesia and the patient experiences only minimal pain.Before administering this injection, ice/cold packs or a topical and/or an injectable local anesthetic are used to make patient more comfortable. This 15 to 20 minute in-office treatment is safe and requires minimal to no downtime.
During the consultation, the expert plastic surgeons at this NYC practice will thoroughly review the patient’s medical history and other considerations. The treatment is not the right option for those with infection in the treatment area. Ideal candidates are those with consolidated fat deposits and fullness underneath the chin. KYBELLA does not tighten loose, sagging skin around the neck and jawline. The injection may require other additional procedures if the candidate has a lot of loose and hanging skin.
Recovery after this double-chin treatment is much quicker and easier than for conventional liposuction. Results are generally visible after 2 to 4 treatments. Up to 6 treatments may be needed for optimal results.
