Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment that banishes your dreaded double chin. If you have submental fat issues, also known as fat under your chin or a double chin, and you live in Washington, D.C., or any of the surrounding communities, Nia Banks, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon, is a perfectionist who treats your body like a work of art, and she can help you lose the double chin with Kybella® treatments at the Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery.
What is Kybella®?
Are you looking for a new way to eliminate double chin fat? A recent survey by the American Society for Dermatological Surgery revealed that nearly 67 percent of the population is as bothered by double chins as we are by lines and wrinkles around our eyes. But unfortunately, a quick fix for a contoured chin has always proved elusive, until now. Kybella® is a recently approved solution for addressing that hard to treat issue of a double chin, safely, effectively, and with no downtime or discomfort.
What are the Benefits of Kybella®?
The dreaded double chin is a depressing reality for those who suffer from excess fat, and there’s no doubt that eliminating the double chin with diet and exercise can be very difficult to accomplish. Do you have extra fat below your chin? Kybella® is an injectable cosmetic treatment that assists with fat absorption and destroys fat cells. Treatment plans developed by Dr. Banks are tailored to each patient depending on the degree of fat and skin laxity present, helping you address the unfortunate fact that your neck, jawline, and chin do not respond to diet and exercise like the rest of your body.
Who is a Candidate for Kybella®?
If you have excess fat below your chin, known as submental fat, then you may very well be a patient for the double chin destroying power of Kybella®. As you age, your body processes fat less efficiently, often resulting in a double chin, which can be a real detriment to your youthful appearance. Prior to Kybella®, liposuction was the only available technique to remove fat from the chin and to contour your neck and jawline. But liposuction requires downtime, and it is a surgical procedure. Now, if you would like to change the appearance of your neck, jawline, or double chin, you may be a good candidate for Kybella®, whose main ingredient helps you absorb fat under the chin without the need for surgery, downtime, or even really any significant pain or discomfort.
What is the Procedure for Kybella®?
First, Dr. Banks will mark your neck and chin area with a grid pattern to represent your personalized treatment strategy for Kybella® injections, and then, after your comfort is assured with a topical numbing agent, a series of injections will be introduced into your neck area as well as the surrounding areas. Most patients need two-to-three treatments spaced six weeks apart, with each treatment taking about 15-20 minutes. You are able to return to work right away with no downtime immediately after your treatment.
