For those who have spent a significant amount of time losing weight and getting their body in shape, there are many treatments that can help them really take their body to the next level. Many non-surgical body contouring techniques can help you get rid of pockets of fat on your body that are not responding to the exercise you do or the diets you try. One of the most effective treatments specifically designed for submental fat is Kybella®.
Many people who have worked hard to diet and exercise feel unsatisfied with the way they look when they see themselves in the mirror because they are still left with a double chin. Submental fat is stubborn. It is hard to get rid of on your own. However, thanks to Kybella®, you can enjoy a much slimmer look without needing to go through a surgical procedure like liposuction to physically remove the fat from the area under your chin.
Treatment with Kybella® involves making injections into the fat under the chin. When the product is injected into the fat, it immediately goes to work disrupting the fat cells in the area. As they are disrupted and are essentially killed off, the body naturally flushes them out over time.
Several small injections are given in order to produce smooth results. Our cosmetic professional may decide to draw a small grid on the area under your chin to serve as a guide for where the injections need to go. This guide will be removed as soon as your treatment is over.
So, what can you expect after Kybella® injections? First, the treatment is attractive to many people because it doesn’t require you to take any time off work to recover. Most people can go right back to their usual routine as soon as their treatment is finished.
In the weeks following your treatment, you will start to slowly see changes in your double chin. You may need to come in for multiple treatment sessions to get the best results. We will help you get a better idea of how many treatments you can expect during your initial consultation.
There are certain requirements that patients need to meet in order to receive Kybella® injections. The best way to find out if this treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our talented plastic surgeon at the Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas.
