If you have ever noticed submental fat below your chin – most commonly referred to as a “double chin” – you are not alone. Many people experience a higher amount of fat under the chin that can cause them to feel self- conscious about their appearance. Fortunately, a new injectable treatment called KYBELLA® is available to adults looking to eliminate this excess fat.
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for this condition. With the KYBELLA® treatment, you can experience an improved appearance and profile.
How does KYBELLA® work?
KYBELLA® is comprised of deoxyholic acid, which is a natural molecule in the body that assists in the body’s process of breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. When the treatment is injected into the fat underneath your chin, it destroys fat cells and prevents them from storing and accumulating additional fat.
Most patients see results after just two treatments, but KYBELLA® can be administered up to 6 times, with injections at least one month apart. The number of treatments you undergo will be based on your preference and desired appearance.
The amount of treatments you need will depend on your specific condition, and it’s best to discuss your options with your surgeon. Dr. Weber is a board-certified, dual-degree oral and maxillofacial surgeon and is highly qualified to safely administer this treatment. When you visit our office in Mount Kisco, NY, for a consultation, Dr. Weber can discuss with you an individualized treatment plan.
Once you have completed your round of KYBELLA® injections, it is unlikely you will need to return for additional treatment. Once your desired appearance is achieved, you can feel confident that your improved aesthetics will remain because the deoxyholic acid destroys the fat cells and prohibits them from accruing fat ever again.
