Do you have a double chin that you just can’t seem to get rid of? Kybella injections may be the answer for you! If you are considering Kybella injections for submental fullness, our Austin, TX plastic surgeons can help you decide if this treatment is right for you!
Understanding Kybella and how it works
Kybella is a new injectable treatment that is FDA-approved to help reduce submental fullness, or the appearance of a double chin. Kybella is made up of deoxycholic acid, which helps break down and dissolve fat cells. When injected into the area beneath the chin, Kybella can help eliminate fat cells and improve the appearance of a double chin.
The Kybella injection procedure
The Kybella injection procedure is relatively simple. First, your Austin, TX plastic surgeon will mark the treatment area with a pen to outline where you will be treated. Next, a small amount of Kybella is injected into each treatment area using a very thin needle. Most people report only minimal discomfort during the injection process. The entire procedure typically takes less than 15 minutes to complete, and many patients return back to their day with little interruption!
Recovery following Kybella injections
Recovery after Kybella injections is also relatively easy. You may experience some swelling or bruising in the treated area, but this will usually subside on its own over a few days. Many patients are not bothered by it and arrange a day or two off of work or school to heal if they desire.
