Fat under the chin is a common problem. Roughly 47 percent of people find that they have an excess of chin fat. If healthy eating and exercise haven’t helped, or you are simply unhappy with the fat under your chin — Kybella is an excellent alternative to surgical treatment.
What is Kybella?
How does it work?
How long does Kybella last?
One of the most frequently asked questions is: How long does Kybella last? Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat. What does this mean? Well, once fat cells are broken down and destroyed they can no longer regenerate or reaccumulate. This means once you have reached your desired look, no further Kybella treatment or procedures are necessary!
Your Kybella procedure:
How long Kybella lasts is certain, but everyone’s treatment plan may look a little different depending on their aesthetic goals. Here’s a quick snapshot of what your Kybella appointment and procedure may look like:
Before you begin Kybella
Before you begin, your healthcare specialist will carefully examine the area under your chin to determine what treatment is right for you. It is important to be clear and open with your provider to ensure that you are a correct candidate for Kybella.
Discuss your medical history and any cosmetic procedures you have had in the past or plan to have in the future. Although Kybella is a nonsurgical procedure, it is important to consult your healthcare provider about any concerns or pre-existing conditions that could cause unwanted side effects.
Here are some things to discuss with your doctor:
Risks and side effects
The most common side effects and symptoms are swelling, pain, bruising, redness, and numbness. Because Kybella is nonsurgical, the recovery process is often minimal. Downtime will vary depending on the treatment plan. Most minor side effects will go away within one or two weeks.
Severe side effects include facial muscle fatigue, trouble swallowing, uneven smile, or nerve injury in the jaw. Any and all post-Kybella treatment discomfort should be discussed with your healthcare provider. If you experience any severe symptoms, contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible.
Looking down at your selfie-camera can be scary, feeling old can be terrifying, and getting rid of a double chin has long been a mystery for cosmetic experts. Not anymore. Kybella offers a safe, non-surgical solution to unwanted chin fat.
