Fat accumulation under the chin in varying degrees is a possibility as one grows old. Even thin people may develop undesirable fullness in the chin that simply refuses to go away. Some people also have a problem with chin fullness due to hereditary reasons.
In most cases, it is difficult to or not possible to shift the chin fat through diet or exercise alone. Fortunately, effective treatments such as Kybella are now available for this problem and Dr. George Pope is a cosmetic expert who can provide you with the correction you desire.
Kybella – What is It?
Kybella is a synthetic form of a chemical known as deoxycholic acid, which exists in the body. Deoxycholic acid has the ability to process fat cells. When it is injected in the chin area, it systematically destroys fat cells in that region. It is a prescription drug and has been approved by the FDA to use for the elimination of fat in the chin region.
The role of deoxycholic acid is to process fat in the body. It helps the body absorb fat. When injected as Kybella, the synthetic acid destroys accumulated fat cells. The result is a smoother and more refined chin.
To perform the treatment, Dr. Pope will administer a series of injections in a single session. He will determine the treatment frequency and number of injections per session based on the quantity of fat that needs to be removed from the chin. The number of injections can range from 20-50 per session. A patient can receive six treatments with a gap of at least 30 days between each session.
Dr. Pope will mark the chin with a spot for the injections to ensure efficiency of the treatment. The acid goes to work and destroys fat cells over the next few days. In the next few weeks, the body will slowly process these destroyed fat cells.
The Benefits of Kybella
Kybella is a nonsurgical treatment designed to get rid of chin fat effectively. There are no incisions required to remove the chin fat and the use of anesthesia is not required for the procedure. You can simply go to your Dr. Pope’s office during a consultation and schedule a treatment session that will take about 15 to 20 minutes.
You don’t have to spend time in recovery either. You can be out and about with your everyday routine after your Kybella treatment. You may experience some swelling or redness in the chin area from injections, but these side effects do not last for long.
Kybella injections are relatively painless. The only discomfort involved is the prick from the injection. If you’re worried about needles, Dr. Pope can use a numbing agent on the chin before administering the injections to help ease any resulting discomfort.
Permanent and Effective Results
Kybella injections can permanently destroy fat cells in the chin region to improve your overall facial aesthetic. The results achieved from Kybella treatments are permanent. If you maintain a stable weight or do not have any other underlying problems that cause submental (under the chin) fat accumulation; your chin may continue to look refined for years.
