For those who desire a more contoured chin and neck, or who are uncomfortable with the extra fat or fullness around their chin, Kybella is a great non-surgical treatment option.
The unwanted fat cells around and below your chin can cause you to be insecure with your appearance and make you look heavier and older than you actually are. If you don’t want to undergo surgery, but are interested in improving the appearance of your chin and neck, Kybella performed by Dr. Rednam may be the treatment for you. As the only FDA-approved injectable treatment aimed at destroying fat cells underneath the chin, this procedure improves appearance in less than six treatments.
Using a synthetic form of the one of the body’s naturally occurring fat absorber molecules—deoxycholic acid—Kybella® is injected into the skin below and around the chin, destroying excess fat and reducing fullness. Once treated with this safe and effective injectable, these cells no longer have the ability to store fat—meaning once your desired aesthetic goal is met, no further treatments are necessary.
During the procedure, Dr. Rednam injects small amounts of Kybella® into multiple points below the chin. The number of injections vary by a patient’s original makeup and their desired goal. Taking twenty minutes or less, this in-office cosmetic procedure can be administered up to six times (one month between each treatment), until a patient’s desired goals are met.
After the procedure, patients may experience swelling, bruising, redness, or numbness of the injection area. Often these symptoms dissipate within a few days , giving patients an improved appearance shortly after their treatment. Since Kybella® is minimally invasive and can be given quickly, patients are able to return to normal daily activity almost immediately.
