Many people live with a double chin, which can prove to be a huge setback to your otherwise svelte appearance. It can even make you appear older than you are. Sometimes no amount of facial exercise can diminish stubborn fat under the chin. However, modern science has come up with a solution to give you a slimmer profile: Kybella.

Kybella: An Effective Remedy for Submental Fat

Kybella, a prescription medicine, has emerged as an effective remedy for submental fat. The procedure can improve your facial contours without the need for plastic surgery.

There is not much you need to do in terms of preparing for the procedure. You only need to have a clear idea of what to expect and a readiness to undergo multiple treatment sessions. As it is a cosmetic procedure, you need to have realistic expectations before the treatment.

How Is Kybella Performed?

Kybella is administered in the form of multiple injections into the target areas. The treatment varies according to your chin profile. During a consultation, Dr. Liu first evaluates the areas to be targeted and formulates a treatment session plan. The plan is customized according to your unique aesthetic goals. This being a non-surgical procedure, is easier to implement and undergo.

Kybella is an excellent alternative to liposuction, the surgical removal of excess fat. It is basically a synthetical version of the deoxycholic acid that is naturally prepared your body. Since this acid absorbs fat, the fat cells around your chin are effectively destroyed.

The target sites on your chin are marked before starting the procedure. You may be given an ice pack or anesthetic cream to numb the target area beforehand. Usually, up to 50 injections are given per session. You will have to undergo multiple sessions for the best results. Generally, the treatment is done over six sessions. You can see improvement in your facial contours in about four treatments.

What to Expect From the Treatment

As it involves no incisions, the procedure is simple with minimal downtime. You can treat your submental fat in 20-minute sittings without much of a hassle or many side effects. Sessions are distributed over a span of time with at least a month’s gap in between each session.

Before you come in for the treatment, you will need to come in for a consultation. During this, make sure to tell Dr. Liu about your medical history, any allergies you may have, and any medications or supplements you are currently taking. Do not come in for the surgery if you are pregnant or planning to be.
