You may like double the fun, double stuffed Oreos, double trouble, or even doubled vacation time off of work, but the last thing you want double of is your chin. If you have started to develop a double chin as you age, Dr. Gary J. Price has a few options— one in particular— that can help contour your profile and give you a smoother looking physique: Kybella. Read on to learn more.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is a non-surgical, FDA approved treatment designed with one goal in mind: to help you get rid of your double chin. Lasting only about 15-20 minutes, your Kybella procedure will be so fast that you won’t have to take any time off of work. By injecting a solution filled with deoxycholic acid into the area beneath your chin, Kybella works to dissolve the fat cells in this area and leave you with a more pronounced profile. Once these fat cells are dissolved, you won’t have to worry about them reproducing again.
What Is Recovery Like?
There is no downtime involved with Kybella, but patients who do receive this treatment can expect some redness, inflammation, and bruising under and around their chin. However, after just a few days, these symptoms should subside.
What Are Results Like?
Depending on how severe the area being targeted under your chin is, you will likely have to undergo several sessions. For instance, the average patient has to get about six treatments to dissolve the fat under their chin and give them optimal results. However, during your initial consultation with Dr. Price, he will tell you about how many treatment sessions he feels are necessary. Once the fat under your chin is dissolved, the cells won’t re-emerge on their own which means that as long as you maintain a healthy diet and get frequent exercise, your results should last.
With Kybella, you can get rid of your double chin in virtually no time. If you would like to learn more about this treatment or if you would like to schedule a consultation appointment, contact Dr. Gary J. Price today!
