kybella double chin fat removal can be the cure for your double chin. Having a strong, chiseled profile is one of the markers of male attractiveness. However, not all men are born with these facial contours and may present a weak silhouette due to weight gain, hereditary factors, and more. One way to get rid of a weak “double” chin or to improve definition is through plastic surgery. While neck lift surgery or liposuction may be an option for some, there’s also a non-surgical alternative that can eliminate excess fat under the chin without anesthesia or scarring. Male Plastic Surgery Los Angeles is proud to offer Kybella for men.
What Is Kybella Double Chin Fat Removal?
Kybella, or deoxycholic acid, is a non-surgical injection that eliminates submental fat, otherwise known as a “double chin.” This substance, a naturally-occurring molecule within the digestive tract, helps to break down fat cells in the body and gradually destroys them over time. Once they’ve been destroyed, fat cells can no longer be stored or accumulated, meaning the results of Kybella are permanent.
How Does It Work?
A physician will start by assessing the patient’s jaw and face to determine the best treatment areas for the procedure. Once these are identified and marked accordingly, the pockets of excess fatty tissue under the chin receive a series of 10 to 20 injections. Typically, these injections are accompanied by a numbing agent such as lidocaine. The whole process takes approximately 15 minutes.
What Is The Recovery Time?
During the procedure and even afterwards, it is normal for patients to experience a burning or tingling sensation. There is no downtime associated with Kybella and normal daily activities can be resumed immediately following treatment. Mild swelling, soreness and redness at the injection sites is expected and should improve within a few days. Over the next 2 to 3 weeks, fat cells will begin to exit the body and results will be noticeable 4 to 6 weeks post-injection. Some patients may require more than one session of Kybella to further reduce fullness under the chin.
Who Is A Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate for the Kybella injection treatment would be a male who has submental fat under the chin area that’s resistant to diet and exercise. Kybella is best performed on patients whose skin still retains elasticity, as this procedure will not treat sagging or dropping skin. Men who do not wish to undergo a neck lift or liposuction may also be good candidates for Kybella as this is a non-surgical alternative.
