Our practice is now proud to include KYBELLA™ in Maryland as an available procedure to treat submental fullness (colloquially referred to as “double chin”), a condition that affects the area underneath the jawline. KYBELLA™ offers a new and exciting alternative treatment to the traditional liposuction procedure, providing patients with an option outside of surgery that reduces recovery time and provides equal results. This treatment comes as an excellent solution to submental fullness for men and women alike, and can restore lost confidence in your physical appearance with a simple, easy treatment.
A very common aesthetic condition, submental fullness affects a large number of men and women. The condition is affected by a number of variables including genetics, age, weight, and overall health. Unfortunately, this condition is difficult to handle, and in fact is often left wholly untreated due to a lack of understanding.
Once submental fullness has occurred, it is exceptionally difficult to alter with normal means, as it is very resistant to change through diet and exercise. For this reason, many men and women are left with a drop in confidence due to a condition they feel is outside of their control. Traditionally, patients could seek liposuction as an effective form of treatment. This method remains, and is still absolutely viable, however KYBELLA™ in Maryland is a new option, and provides some excellent benefits.
The product of exhaustive testing both in laboratory and in practice, KYBELLA™ utilizes new cosmetic technology that simulates a substance already in your body (deoxycholic acid). This synthetic is designed to destroy fat cells, and is administered via injection. The injected KYBELLA™ causes a reaction known as lysis (membrane destruction) with the fat cells present in the injected space. This membrane disruption ruptures fat cells, and allows the contents of the cells to be naturally metabolized by the body, thus removing the fat from the affected area.
Put simply, KYBELLA™ is an injection that “melts” the fatty cells present in your chin, and reduces the negative aesthetic appearance of submental fullness without the use of surgical procedure. KYBELLA™ is administered over a series of injections, likely done over the span of a month or more, depending on the patient’s need.
The reason KYBELLA™ is so exciting to our practice is the sheer number of options and benefits it provides. These include:
Understand that these benefits are not intended as a biased comparison over traditional liposuction as a treatment for submental fullness. Both treatments have seen great success, and both share many of the same risks and rewards. KYBELLA™ is simply an alternative, and may offer benefits that appeal to a broader selection of patients.
KYBELLA™ is a solution for a condition many patients feel weighed down and distressed by, and can help you recover your confidence in ways you did not anticipate. KYBELLA™ is available for most patients, but discussion will be in-depth about your goals and wants, to ensure KYBELLA™ is the best solution.
