If you are one of the many West Michigan patients who are concerned with having a double chin, you are not alone. A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common issue in both men and women. In the past, invasive techniques such as liposuction were often used to eliminate this unwanted fat. Now there is a non-invasive option for those who do not wish to undergo anesthesia: Kybella. Read on for more information on why you may benefit from this treatment.
Kybella treatments are minimally invasive, involving injections of deoxycholic acid into the unwanted submental fat. This medication will work to dissolve the unwanted fat cells permanently. Results are typically seen after your second treatment session.
On average, a Kybella session will take approximately 30 minutes. Patients may experience swelling and bruising, as well as temporary numbness. Symptoms are temporary and vary between patients. Overall, treatment time is dramatically reduced from that of a liposuction procedure, with most patients returning to their regular activities within 1-3 days.
With past fat reduction procedures, patients have had to spend thousands of dollars. With Kybella, treatments are much more affordable and have demonstrated consistently optimal results.
Wide Array of Candidates
Because Kybella is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is more suitable than liposuction for a variety of patients. Healthy patients who are unhappy with their double chin are often great candidates for this treatment option.
