Even if you’re at your ideal weight, you might have extra chin fat. The submental area below your chin can hold fat even if you exercise regularly, eat right, and live a healthy lifestyle. Excess chin fat can be frustrating and embarrassing, and it’s often difficult to target with weight loss strategies.
While chin fat can be related to weight gain, some people are genetically predisposed to submental fullness, otherwise known as the dreaded double chin. With Kybella®, you don’t have to live with the extra fat, which can make you feel self-conscious and less than your best.
Waseem Garbia, PA-C, and the aesthetic team at Dontage are experts in Kybella therapy. Kybella is an effective and safe nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that can dramatically transform your profile and eliminate excess chin fat.
Trim your chin with Kybella
FDA-approved Kybella is a noninvasive aesthetic treatment that targets submental fullness, more commonly known as a double chin. Kybella is a great option for patients who are generally in good health but are self-conscious about unwanted fat below the chin.
Waseem can help you decide if Kybella treatment is right for you. People who live healthy lifestyles and exercise regularly, but still have lingering excess chin fat, can see significant results with Kybella treatment.
Kybella is appealing to many patients because it’s completely noninvasive and nonsurgical. Kybella uses synthetic deoxycholic acid, a man-made version of a naturally occuring substance in your body that breaks down and absorbs fat. The acid targets and destroys fat cells in your chin, giving you a more sculpted appearance.
In Kybella treatment sessions, Waseem injects synthetic deoxycholic at various points across your chin to evenly target and destroy excess fat cells that give you the look of a double chin. Your body absorbs and eliminates the fat cells over time, and your chin profile improves.
The results you achieve with Kybella are long-lasting. Kybella permanently destroys the unwanted fat cells in your submental area — and you can expect your results to last as long as you stay at a healthy weight.
Kybella treatment at Dontage
When you come to Dontage for treatment, Waseem evaluates your unique condition and develops a customized treatment plan. You talk with Waseem about your medical history, any previous procedures, and your goals for Kybella treatment.
The number of treatment sessions that Waseem recommends depends on the amount of extra fat under your chin, and on your aesthetic goals. Most patients receive a series of up to six treatments that are spaced a month apart to maximize your results.
During each session, Waseem prepares the treatment area and makes some small injections under your chin. Each session takes about 20 minutes, and you can return to your daily activities as soon as you leave the office.
You can expect some swelling or numbness under your chin immediately after each Kybella procedure. Symptoms are typically mild and should fade quickly, but be sure to contact us if you experience any muscle weakness, an uneven smile, or injection site problems.
Kybella can help you get rid of excess chin fat, eliminating that dreaded double chin once and for all. To learn more about the benefits of Kybella and how you can get a defined chin profile, schedule an initial consultation with Waseem and the team at Dontage today.
