For patients who are reluctant to have a surgical procedure to remove fat deposits in their chin, Kybella® presents a new and revolutionary way to achieve amazing results. Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that specifically targets fat cells under the chin. With just a few simple injections, patients can eliminate the saggy, heavy appearance of their chin to create a sleek and defined jawline. The doctors at Reston Advanced Oral and Cosmetic Facial Surgery are proud to offer Kybella so that patients can finally achieve the look they crave.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella’s primary ingredient is deoxycholic acid. While this form of the ingredient is produced synthetically, deoxycholic acid is a molecule that’s naturally in the body, it helps break down and absorb fat. By administering a significant dose of Kybella directly under the chin, our doctors can help melt away fat cells without a single incision. Once these fat cells have been eliminated, Reston patients will benefit from decreased plumpness under the chin and around the neck, creating a sleeker profile.
Overall, Kybella is a great choice for patients who:
- Have unwanted fat deposits under their chin.
- Feel that they look older than they really are because of their sagging chin.
- Want to avoid traditional surgery.
- Follow an appropriate diet and exercise routine, but still can’t get rid of chin fat.
How Many Kybella® Treatments Does It Take to See Results?
Every patient is different, so there is no standard treatment plan. Instead, our doctors will work with each and every client to determine how many Kybella treatments will help them achieve their desired results. While one treatment can help patients with less severe cases, the average patient does require between two to four sessions, each spaced one month apart. In total, patients can receive up to six Kybella treatments.
The good news is that once the patient has achieved results with Kybella, these results will be permanent, as the fat cells in the chin will be completely eliminated. That being said, if the patient does gain weight, new fat cells could start to appear, affecting the results.
What Is the Kybella® Procedure Like?
Kybella is not just one injection; rather, it’s a series of injections that are all completed one after another. From start to finish, the process takes less than 20 minutes, meaning patients don’t have to dedicate an entire day to the procedure. Our doctors will carefully numb the area and then give multiple small injections around the chin to help distribute Kybella in the body.
