What Causes Submental Fat?
The appearance of excess fat underneath the chin, also referred to as submental fat, can be caused by a variety of factors including weight fluctuations, aging, and genetics, and this area is often difficult to target with conventional methods. For men and women who do not desire liposuction or other surgical procedures to treat this cosmetic concern, Kybella® can help.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable treatment that is approved by the FDA for the correction of submental fat in the lower face. It is the first treatment of its kind, and is a formulation of deoxycholic acid. In the body, deoxycholic acid aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat, and when it is administered into the fatty tissue underneath the chin, this formulation disables fat cells and prevents them from accumulating or storing fat in the future.
When Will I See Results?
After the targeted fat cells are permanently disabled with multiple small injections, most patients begin to see visible results after two to four sessions. Typically, up to six treatment sessions are recommended no less than a month apart for optimal results, and the number of sessions you may need will be discussed during your consultation.
Is the Fat Permanently Gone?
Kybella® permanently disables fat cells, and after your aesthetic goals are achieved, future treatments may not be necessary. Future weight fluctuations and the natural aging process can potentially restore fat to this area.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with any injectable treatment, slight bruising, swelling, or redness is common but typically subsides after the first day or two. As deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body, Kybella® is typically easily recognized and processed by the body with no major complications. During your consultation, Dr. Jose and our medical team will discuss all safety information with you as well as what your treatment options are and how many sessions you may need.
