Stop Seeing Double, Get Kybella

April 5, 2019

Has unwanted fat under your chin been bothering you and making you feeling self conscious? You eat healthy, exercise and maintain your weight, yet this extra fat under your chin has you looking heavier than you really are. Although this is a common problem, it is very undertreated. Dr. Paul Sabini offers Kybella, the only FDA approved injectable drug to reduce the submental fullness, also known as the “double chin”.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a treatment that injects synthetic deoxycholic acid into the under chin area. This molecule occurs naturally in the body, so adding more aids in the breakdown and absorption process of dietary fat. Once Kybella is injected, the fat cells are destroyed so they can no longer store fat. This means that your results will last, and there is no need for annual touch up treatments.

The Treatment Process

Every process is different for every patient. The amount of treatment sessions required depends on how much fat is in the under chin area, and the goals you have for yourself. To start the process you will need to have a consultation with your doctor to determine your treatment. Furthermore, each session is at least a month apart, with a maximum of six treatments. Every treatment includes multiple small injections under the chin, and this process takes about 15-20 minutes. There is no major recovery time with Kybella treatments. Patients may experience injection site pain, swelling, bruising and redness, which all usually resolve on their own. More serious side effects may include trouble swallowing or nerve injury in the jaw. If any of these problems occur, talk to your doctor immediately.

Dr. Sabini customizes his Kybella treatments for every patient. Most patients receive two to six treatments, and see results about twelve weeks after. If Kybella interests you, call today to schedule a consultation. Dr. Sabini can address all of your aesthetic goals, and create the right treatment plan for you.
