Kybella Injections Make a Double Chin Disappear

Sudden weight gain and genetic predispositions can lead to some unwelcome changes in our body. One of the most undesirable after-effects of weight gain is a double chin. A double chin is formed when a layer of fat is deposited just below the chin. It can affect a person’s overall appearance, along with their confidence.

Fortunately, one can easily get rid of this layer of fat through the use of Kybella injections. Kybella is a product composed of a substance known as deoxycholic acid in its synthetic form. Deoxycholic acid is the byproduct of the metabolism of intestinal bacteria. It is also a secondary bile juice and absorbs fat in the body.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella injections are administered to targeted areas using needles. The deoxycholic acid present in Kybella destroys the targeted fat cells. The fat cells are then assimilated by the body’s immune system.

Kybella is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure preferred by people who do not wish to undergo a more invasive procedure like liposuction. Kybella injections are a safer alternative with very little downtime.

The Kybella Injection Procedure

Before the procedure, your plastic surgeon will explain the nuances of the procedure to you as part of a consultation at our office. Make sure to discuss any previous history of drug allergies in order to rule out any potential complications.

During this consultation, your plastic surgeon will examine your chin and neck and then recommend the best course of corrective action for you. You will also be able to look at before-and-after photos.

At the start of your Kybella injection procedure, the targeted areas are numbed by applying a topical numbing agent. The Kybella injections are then administered into the targeted areas using multiple small injections.

Since Kybella injections consist of a substance that naturally occurs in the human body, the chances of an allergic reaction or rejection by the body’s immune system is very low.

Each treatment requires about twelve to twenty injections, and each treatment session is spaced a month apart. The number of treatment sessions needed varies from person to person and depends on the amount of fat that is to be removed. Generally, around six treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results.

After Your Injections

After treatment, a degree of swelling around the injection sites is normal and will fade within a few days. Results from your Kybella treatments can be observed within a period of four to six weeks. No touch-up treatments will be required, since the results of Kybella injections last for years.
