Is KYBELLA® Right for Me?
KYBELLA® is a minimally-invasive injectable treatment that kills fat cells right at the source, giving you a noticeably more sculpted profile. Chin fat, also known as submental fullness, can make you appear older or heavier than you are, even if you eat right and exercise regularly.
A double chin can be caused by weight gain, genetics, or aging. You might have had this fullness under your chin for your whole life, or it might have developed recently. A double chin is bothering to most people who have one. A survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) found that 67% of people with fat under their chin consider it bothersome.
KYBELLA® is an injectable solution that reduces the fat under your chin without the risk or invasiveness of surgery. Like Botox, KYBELLA® is a safe, nonsurgical alternative to getting a more youthful, shapely look with little recovery time and effective results. KYBELLA® works by destroying the fat-accumulated cells under your chin, permanently.
During the initial consultation in Houston, your chin and overall health will be examined to see if you are a good candidate for KYBELLA®, the goals are discussed, and the procedure is planned. Because each patient has a unique chin and desired results, every KYBELLA® treatment is customized to fit your needs.
The most common side effects of KYBELLA® injections include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness. These side effects, however, are only temporary and resolve themselves shortly after each treatment.
You should tell Dr. Adan if you have had or plan to have surgery or cosmetic treatments performed on your chin, neck, or face, if you have any medical conditions in or around the neck that might interfere with KYBELLA®, and if you have trouble swallowing or have any bleeding problems. It is not recommended for women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.
