Do you have one too many chins despite a healthy diet and exercise? A double chin isn’t always related to being overweight. A variety of factors including age, weight gain or genetics can contribute to the submental fatty tissue below the chin.
Traditionally, elimination of the double chin required surgery for men and women. Kybella™ is a revolutionary new treatment to help define and contour your jawline without surgery. The procedure consists of a series of injections performed in our Ocean, New Jersey cosmetic center that can permanently reduce the double chin, restoring a more youthful profile.
How Does Kybella™ Work?
The Kybella™ treatment contains deoxycholic acid, a molecule that is naturally occurring in the body, which increases the rate at which the body breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. Kybella™ injections will permanently destroy fat cells, resulting in a slimmer, more youthful contour of the neck and jowl area after your recommended treatment. Results will gradually emerge over time and will be lasting with the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle.
The treatment is administered in a series of relatively quick injections in the comfort of our office, spaced about a month apart. After an exam and consultation, your doctor will recommend the appropriate schedule and number of injections for the best result.
Kybella™: What To Expect
After a typical hour session of an hour or less, you may experience mild swelling, redness and/or tenderness for up to several days. Dr. Theocharides will discuss all aspects of your treatment during your initial consultation and create a personalized plan for scheduling your injection sessions.
Total results will gradually emerge and because the natural process of destroying fat cells is permanent, they should last with a healthy lifestyle. Factors such as significant weight gain after treatment can affect your results over time.
