Do you find yourself hiding from friends when the cameras come out? Are you always feeling self-conscious about the excess fat underneath your chin that makes you look heavier than you are? While we can work out and reduce fat from around the body, it’s impossible to reduce fat from underneath the chin. This is when patients start considering the benefits of plastic surgery. However, not everyone needs plastic surgery to address submental fullness, or the dreaded “double chin.” Now, patients can undergo simple injections to achieve the same results without surgery, scarring, or risks of infection. This injectable is known as Kybella.
How Kybella works
Kybella is an injectable that is formulated with deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid, sometimes referred to as cholinic acid, is a secondary bile acid that can be injected into the chin and neck area to eliminate unwanted fat. This, in turn, breaks down the fat cells and results in a more defined and tighter neck and chin. With several injections spaced months apart, patients can gradually improve the appearance of their double chin and see remarkable results!
What to expect from Kybella injections
First, patients need to book an appointment with their doctor for an initial evaluation. During this appointment, Dr. Frank Ferraro of the Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey will assess a patient to decide if they are a good fit for Kybella injections. Then, injections are made around the chin area within just a few minutes in the office. Patients then schedule several sessions in advance and over the course of many months, the double chin will slowly resolve.
