Kybella Q & A
Kybella is a product from Allergan, the makers of Botox and Juvéderm. As an FDA-approved injectable treatment, Kybella is used to reduce excess fat and fullness under the chin. As an alternative to liposuction or surgery, it’s a safe and effective option. While non-invasive options are usually safe for everyone, your situation is unique. You may benefit from Kybella, or perhaps Kybella combined with other treatment methods or enhancements.
During your consultation, you’ll discuss your medical history and expectations with Dr. Obasi so your treatment can be customized to meet your needs. Your treatment is performed right in the office and can be done in 15-20 minutes; no surgery or general anesthesia is needed. Some patients have a small amount of fat under the chin and may only need a single treatment. Other patients require more than one session; some may need up to six treatments to achieve the desired outcome. Treatments are performed at least one month apart.
After a Kybella treatment, you may experience some side effects. Swelling, bruising, and numbness are expected but will subside as the product breaks down fat cells. If you experience any other side effects, make sure to notify Dr. Obasi right away. In rare cases of an allergic reaction, you might not be able to tolerate the treatment. In such a case, Dr. Obasi can help you choose a different skincare route.
You’ll have noticeable effects after a single treatment, and the results will improve after each treatment. For example, you’ll notice that the skin feels more lifted and tightened where the treatment is applied. Since the destroyed fat cells cannot regrow, they are gone forever. However, a poor diet or lack of exercise can still make you gain weight, which may reintroduce the double chin problem. If you’d like to keep the results of your Kybella treatment, it’s good to strive toward maintaining your weight. You can also enjoy your results longer if you practice good skincare habits.
