Stubborn fat beneath the chin (submental fat) can be extremely difficult to get rid of. Many men and women continue to struggle with the appearance of a double chin despite exercising regularly, eating right, and maintaining a healthy weight. While facial liposuction can help to sculpt a slimmer, well-contoured chin, not everyone is ready to undergo a surgical procedure. Dr. Diwan now offers Kybella, an injectable, FDA approved treatment that can help to finally eliminate that problem chin fat.
Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment that is administered beneath the chin in order to reduce stubborn double chin fat. You will have a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Diwan in order to create a personalized Kybella treatment plan. This will be based on the amount of existing fat, your natural facial contours, and your desired outcome.
When you come in for your Kybella treatment, Dr. Diwan will mark your injection sites using a specially created template. As Kybella is injected at the marked areas beneath your chin, the naturally occurring bio acid causes the fat cells to die. Over time, the destroyed fat cells are naturally eliminated from your body, leaving behind a slim, well-toned contour of your chin, jawline and neck.
Most patients are able to resume their regular activities shortly after their Kybella treatment with Dr. Diwan. You may experience some numbness or redness along your neck, but this should fade over the next few days.
While Kybella is a non-surgical treatment, you will achieve the best result from a board certified dermatologic surgeon like Dr. Diwan.
You should begin noticing results after just one month. Dr. Diwan may recommend a series of two or four Kybella sessions in order to achieve your desired outcome.
The wonderful thing about Kybella is that once the fat cells are eliminated, they will not come back. However, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to avoid excessive weight gain.
