If you’re bothered by excess fullness under your chin, Kybella® is an injectable medication that permanently reduces your double chin. In San Jose, California, Thang D. Tran, MD, of True You Medical Aesthetic offers Kybella® treatments to men and women who want a slimmer facial profile. Call the office or book an appointment online to learn if you’re a good candidate for this simple treatment that reduces your double chin.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells that sit underneath the chin. Dr. Tran administers Kybella® treatments for his patients that wish to improve the look of their profile, boost their confidence, and cut down on stubborn, double-chin fat. Kybella® is effective on fat under the chin that just doesn’t respond to traditional fat loss methods, such as diet and exercise.
During your Kybella® session with Dr. Tran, you’ll receive a series of small injections that aim to reduce fat cells on the underside of the chin. These injections take place right on the target area, according to Dr. Tran’s expertise. The compound that’s released during these injections destroys fat cells.
The cells are broken down and evacuated through your body’s natural waste removal system. Some patients see results after just a few treatments, but more definition can usually be seen in the chin after about six treatments.
Each treatment can be tailored to the patient’s preferences. For example, smaller doses can be given over more treatments which result in less swelling per treatment. Kybella® is an excellent alternative for submental fullness compared to invasive surgery. Surgical interventions, such as traditional liposuction or Smartlipo®, require more time, money, and recovery time.
Everyone responds slightly differently to a treatment like Kybella®. It can be used adults age 18 and up who have no chronic medical issues that will negate the procedure. Kybella® is not a treatment for just those with an overly-large amount of chin fat, as even those with a minimal double chin can see results after going through treatment. For example, women who have acquired chin fat with age have benefited from Kybella procedures.
If you can’t seem to rid yourself of double chin fat despite your diet or exercise efforts, then Kybella® may be right for you. This procedure is a great alternative to surgery, and you can see positive results after treatment. All body types can benefit from Kybella®.
