At The Bougainvillea Clinique, Our surgeon and team find that the treatment of a double chin may be difficult to address for many patients. He and his plastic surgery professional see many men and women in the Winter Park, FL area who are unhappy with this extra fat in the chin and neck area. They may believe that liposuction to remove the excess fat cells from this area is their only option. Fortunately, our team of professionals is excited to offer an alternative that does not require surgery. This alternative is known as Kybella®.
What is Kybella®?
Our surgeon of The Bougainvillea Clinique describe Kybella® as an injectable treatment designed to remove the excess fat cells under the chin. This medication is made up of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule in our bodies that helps in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the treatment area, Kybella® destroys these unwanted fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in double chin fullness.
What can I expect during Kybella® treatment?
During your initial consultation with Our surgeon, he will assess your double chin and create a personalized treatment plan for you, including how many sessions may be necessary to achieve your desired results. Each session involves a series of small injections under the chin. While the injections may cause some discomfort, The Bougainvillea Clinique team can provide topical numbing cream or ice to minimize any discomfort.
What results can I expect from the Kybella® treatment?
Patients of our Winter Park, FL clinic often see a noticeable reduction in their double chin fullness after just a few Kybella® sessions. Results can vary for each individual, but most patients see an improved profile and tightened jawline with this non-surgical treatment option. It is important to note that Kybella® does not tighten excess skin, so those who also have loose skin in the chin and neck area may be better suited for liposuction or a neck lift procedure.
