When a double chin has been the bane to your life and reason for lack of social life, Kybella is the key.  Kybella is an FDA approved injection that dissolves fat beneath the chin. As we get older, the neck and chin are influenced by our genetics in addition to weight gain. This creates a more round appearance to the face and a heavier look. Most patients claim its one of the stubborn areas in which, however much you workout or eliminate fat, the fat simply won't go off.

The medication designed to take care of "submental fat" (the fat under the chin) is Kybella that claims to eliminate fat cells. There is hardly any downtime, it is noninvasive and nontoxic, and there is minimal danger.

Accepted by the FDA at 2015, Kythera Biopharmaceuticals' medication on the marketplace as opposed to anesthesia or operation, employing a synthetic variant of deoxycholic acid--a sodium found in human bile which helps fat digest and destroys cells. Once injected into subcutaneous fat, then this specific cytolytic medication does precisely the exact thing--in concentrated places. This occurs slowly over the course of many weeks.

Ahead of Kybella, the only real alternative we needed to enhance this region was conventional liposuction. A little, well concealed, incision is made beneath the chin as well as the fat is suctioned from the region to enhance the shape of their jawline. Although anesthesia is a superb modality, not all patients wish to experience general anesthesia as well as the downtime related to the operation. Kybella now provides us the capability to take care of this annoying area with only a couple of injections. There's not any downtime, so the shots are done at work and the whole treatment could be carried out in no more than 10 minutes. Most patients may need two to four treatments, done a minimum of one month apart. Frequent side effects include swelling, moderate bruising, bleeding, swelling and regions of firmness.

Kybella is not for patients looking for immediate results. It requires about four to eight weeks to digest and break down the targeted fat cells. Then the benefits of the treatment become noticeable. Dr. Kassir uses his own innovative techniques when injecting Kybella to create optimal results for his patients. To say goodbye to your double chin, call Dr. Kassir today to book your appointment for Kybella injections!
