Most individuals feel very satisfied after they have lost a lot of weight. For many, losing weight is described as a war. It is a series of small battles that they are eventually able to win in order to overcome the problem of obesity or being overweight. Even though a person should feel very proud of the work they did, they may not always be completely satisfied with their body afterward. They may be dealing with stubborn deposits of fat that they are not able to get rid of no matter how hard they exercise or how much they diet. One area that is really hard to treat is under the chin. Even if a person is at their ideal weight, they may still have a double chin. It is also a place that is almost impossible to exercise.
Kybella® is a treatment option that is available for individuals who would like to eliminate a double chin. It is able to target the fat under the chin and basically lead to its permanent loss. The way the treatment works involves disrupting fat cell membranes under the chin. For many individuals, it has been almost a miracle treatment. It has helped them to achieve their final weight loss goals and walk away with an appearance they can feel proud of.
Since Kybella® is so amazing, you may be wondering if it can be used on other parts of the body. At this time, it is only approved by the FDA for treatment under the chin, and there are no off label uses for the treatment at the moment. In time, it may be approved for treatment in other areas.
In addition to its ability to get rid of double chin fat, the great thing about Kybella® is that it is almost completely non-invasive and requires zero downtime. In the past, a person may have had to go through a surgical procedure, such as liposuction, in order to get rid of their double chin. This would have left them with some scarring and the risk of infection. Now, all you need to do is come into our office for a couple of treatment sessions. The number of sessions you need is going to depend on your circumstance.
