Eliminate Stubborn Chin Fat Without Surgery
Fat deposits in the lower face that cause a double chin appearance can be difficult to get rid of by natural means. This area of excess fat is typically reduced with invasive procedures such as liposuction and neck lifts. Fortunately, for some patients there is an effective non-surgical procedure to reduce submental fat and contour the chin. A series of Kybella injections can provide patient results comparable to those of a more invasive procedure without the pain or downtime.
Dr. Greg Chernoff at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Indianapolis, IN offers Kybella and a comprehensive selection of other non-surgical aesthetic treatments for patients to enhance their face and neck.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable derived from deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body. Deoxycholic acid has been proven to aid in the breakdown of dietary fat. When injected into the chin, this acid works in the same way it does within the body, destroying excess fat cells in the chin area and leaving behind a slimmer, more sculpted profile.
Who Is A Candidate For Kybella?
If you have attempted to reduce excess chin fat with diet and exercise and have not seen results, you are not alone. This specific type of fat (submental) is often resistant to diet and exercise. In fact, according to a survey by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery demonstrated that 67% of adults are bothered by a double chin.
Kybella can be used as a non-surgical cosmetic enhancement procedure for both men and women who do not like their appearance or profile due to a double chin. It is most effective on patients with taut skin in the neck area because Kybella does not tighten skin. Dr. Chernoff may recommend CoolSculpting as an alternative nonsurgical treatment to Kybella.
Dr. Chernoff has been certified as an injection specialist. He also has been training physicians and nurses on the art of meticulous injection techniques for more than fifteen years now. All patients undergoing injectable treatments are seen one week after treatment to ensure that they are happy with the results. Ask Dr. Chernoff if you are a candidate for Kybella.
How Is Kybella Injected And What Are The Results?
Derived from deoxycholic acid, Kybella is injected by Dr. Chernoff into the specific treatment areas with a fine needle, where it destroys fat cells. Deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body, and its use in reducing fat in the chin area has been clinically tested and is FDA-approved. A series of several small injections are administered into the fatty part of the chin, with the entire session lasting only a few minutes with minimal discomfort.
Slight bruising, swelling, redness or itchiness is common at injection sites but should resolve shortly after treatment. Dr. Chernoff cools the treated areas during the injections, reducing patient discomfort during healing.
Kybella is a gradual process and often requires multiple sessions over a series of weeks or months in order to achieve desired results. Although fat cells are destroyed permanently, future weight gain can compromise results, and patients should maintain their weight through diet and exercise in order to maintain the improved contours of the chin.
