How Effective Are KYBELLA® Injections At Reducing Facial Fat?
If you have a double chin or full neck that won’t seem to budge despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, you may benefit from professional fat reduction treatments. For men and women who want to achieve a slimmer neckline but aren’t interested in the expense and downtime associated with cosmetic surgery, board-certified physician Dr. Christy Watson (aka Dr. Christy) and the expert team at Body Bar MD are proud to offer revolutionary KYBELLA injections in Terre Haute and Carmel, IN. Read on to learn more about the benefits of KYBELLA for neck fat reduction here, and find out whether KYBELLA may be right for you.
I lost weight but still have a double chin
Even with weight loss, some patients continue to struggle with stubborn fat under their chin. In fact, patients who have always maintained a healthy weight can still develop a double chin at some point. For many men and women, stubborn neck fat is due to:
- Weight fluctuation
- Hormone changes
When a consistent diet and dedicated exercise routine fail to reduce your neck fat, it may be time to consider professional treatments. While neck liposuction is certainly an effective option for removing stubborn fat under the chin, many patients prefer a more convenient, less expensive alternative to surgery that doesn’t require a lengthy recovery period. To help these men and women achieve a slimmer silhouette, Dr. Christy offers KYBELLA injections.
How does KYBELLA work?
KYBELLA is an FDA-approved injectable product designed to reduce fat in the submental area, or under the chin, to give patients a more slender neckline and correct the appearance of a double chin. During a KYBELLA treatment in Terre Haute or Carmel, IN, which can typically be completed in 15 – 20 minutes, patients will lie comfortably in one of our private rooms. If desired, a topical numbing agent can be applied to the skin to minimize any discomfort during the procedure, which involves a series of injections in the neck area. The active ingredient in KYBELLA works to destroy the fat cells’ ability to store fat, resulting in a dramatically slimmer, smoother neckline.
Does KYBELLA really work?
With a single KYBELLA treatment, patients can expect a 20 – 30% reduction in fat volume, which translates to a visibly slimmer neckline. For most patients, a series of 2 – 3 treatments spaced out about 3 – 4 weeks apart is required to achieve their desired shape. It is important to note that KYBELLA aims to reduce small amounts of stubborn submental fat. Patients with a significant amount of double chin fat, hanging neck skin, or other advanced concerns may be better suited to cosmetic surgery.
How long does KYBELLA last?
Unlike other injectable products, which are designed to be used at regular intervals, KYBELLA is intended to make long-lasting improvements after a single round of treatment. To preserve these results over time, patients should maintain a healthy, stable weight. Gaining weight after KYBELLA injections can cause the remaining fat cells to swell and/or new fat cells to be generated.
