If you have lost weight, but are struggling to eliminate unwanted fat in the lower face and jaw, Kybella can help. This treatment can safely and quickly eliminate stubborn fat. Sometimes called a “double chin,” submental fat or fullness is not easy to remove with diet and exercise alone. Maybe you don’t want to go through with surgery or liposuction for such a delicate area. At Tarola Plastic Surgery in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, we can help you get rid of submental fullness with a quick and easy Kybella treatment.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is a treatment that is non-invasive and requires no surgery. It is used to remove unwanted fat from the lower jaw and face associated with a double chin.
Submental fullness is fat on the lower face, and jaw that is more commonly known as a “double chin.” Submental fullness is often very stubborn and difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise, and until recently, often required surgery or liposuction to remove it.
The Treatment—How Long Does It Last?
The treatment is a series of small injections over several sessions. The treatment is FDA-approved and safe. The treatment removes submental fullness by breaking down the fat and permanently disabling fat storage in the target area.
The fat will never come back. The treatment uses deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the body to break down dietary fat for energy.
When Will I See Results?
The change is not immediate and will occur over several months after treatment—meaning that it looks natural, and there won’t be a sudden change in your appearance. The treatment works well on severe submental fat that is difficult to remove without surgery. The result is a slim lower face and jaw. The non-invasive treatment doesn’t require downtime, meaning you can immediately return to their normal routine or work without worry.
Who Can Benefit From Kybella?
Anyone experiencing stubborn excess fat in the face or chin can benefit from this treatment. In 2015, a study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that almost 70% of people live with submental fullness. However, most people do not need a procedure like liposuction to address this issue—Kybella remains the easiest and safest treatment alternative.
If you have gained weight due to age, or have recently lost weight, chances are you still have submental fat on the lower face. As there is no exercise that can target the area, options for removing it are very limited.
