Men and women who avoid having their picture taken because of their double chin will find that they are more self-conscious about their appearance than they may have originally thought. A double chin, known in the medical field as “submental fullness,” is present on patients regardless of their weight. Some patients have a double chin due to genetics. These patients may feel as though the double chin makes them appear heavier than they really are. In the past, the only way to treat submental fullness was with plastic surgery. However, our doctors of the Miami Beach area are pleased to provide an alternative method for patients to consider: Kybella.
What is Kybella?
Our team describes Kybella as a medication that is used to treat fat cells in the chin and jaw area. Kybella is formulated with deoxycholic acid. Also known as cholanoic acid, this ingredient can be used to reduce fat cells in the injected area. It is FDA approved for the treatment of submental fullness, making it a safe and reliable way to achieve a better profile and avoid excess fat when being photographed.
Is Kybella safe?
Kybella has gone through many trials to be approved by the FDA. Additionally, our team of professionals have been trained and experienced in providing Kybella injections to ensure proper results. Our providers are always educating themselves on ways to provide reliable and safe services to patients in and around the community.
What can I expect from Kybella?
Kybella treats the fat cells in the chin upon injection. The fat cells are destroyed, and the body will absorb them and pass them through the lymphatic system. Over the course of several weeks and months, patients will see gradual and noticeable changes occurring to the double chin.
