Kybella™ is an effective alternative to any procedure that provides a solution to submental fullness, or commonly known as a double chin. Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that melts away excess chin fat, improving the chin’s contour and ridding yourself of a double chin.
Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, known to break down dietary fat. In Maryland, we find this series of injections is effective in treating this very common aesthetic concern.
During a treatment of Kybella, performed by Dr. Rosenberg, the deoxycholic acid is injected in the area of unwanted fat. When it interacts with the fat cells, it disrupts the cell membrane and causes the fat cells to burst. Then the fat cells are released and naturally absorbed and expelled from the body. A consultation is necessary to determine the best course of action for your specific Kybella treatment.
Benefits of Kybella
Kybella is a revolutionary technique to plastic surgeons and patients because of the number of benefits it provides, including reduced recovery time, minimal downtime, and a non-surgical option for patients not ready for invasive surgical procedures. Although Kybella does not replace traditional liposuction results, it still sees great success and carries fewer risks and complications.
Double chin, or submental fullness, is a condition that many patients feel self-conscious and distressed about; Kybella can help restore that confidence in a way no one expected.
