Stubborn fat beneath the chin and jawline can often be the most difficult to get rid of. Even with diet and exercise, a person’s age and/or genetics could make losing a double chin an extremely frustrating–and seemingly unwinnable–battle. However, with the Kybella injectable treatment, men and women can now slim and sculpt their chin and reduce stubborn chin fat without having to undergo surgery.
Kybella is formulated with a fat-destroying substance known as deoxycholic acid. It is FDA approved for the treatment of submental fat cells, helping to achieve a slimmer, well-contoured facial profile.
Dr. Zuliani recommends Kybella to healthy men and women who are bothered by the appearance of a double chin or excess submental fullness despite a healthy lifestyle. Often patients are at their ideal weight and happy with their bodies, but cannot seem to get rid of the stubborn chin fat.
During your consultation, Dr. Zuliani will listen to your goals and carefully analyze your unique condition to determine if Kybella is right for you. In some cases, he may recommend facial liposuction instead.
Your Kybella treatment will be performed on-site at Zuliani Facial Aesthetics in Bloomfield Hills. This injectable treatment does not require any general anesthesia or sedation; however, a topical numbing cream can be applied to minimize any discomfort.
During your treatment, Dr. Zuliani will carefully mark the injection sites beneath your chin. This will help to ensure an even and natural-looking reduction of the fat. Dr. Zuliani will then administer each injection of Kybella at the marked points.
Once your Kybella treatment is complete, you should feel well enough to return to your normal routine without any downtime. Some bruising and swelling is to be expected, but these should gradually fade within the first few days.
Kybella is designed to provide patients with a permanent reduction of stubborn chin fat. The treated cells will no longer be able to accumulate and store fat. However, this does not make patients immune to weight gain. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to enjoy the long-lasting benefits.
