Before you realize how it happened, you may notice you have a double chin. You never thought the day would come, but there it is, the same double chin you noticed on other people when you were younger.
While a neck lift and liposuction have long been utilized to remove double chin fat, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Basner now offers Kybella, the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment to improve the contour of your neck and chin by treating submental fat. To schedule a consultation to find out if Kybella is right for you, please call the plastic surgery practice of Adam L. Basner, M.D., at 410-616-3000.
Dissolve Double-Chin Fat Cells with Kybella
Elle perhaps put it best: Kybella is "like liposuction in a syringe." But unlike neck liposuction or a neck lift, Kybella is completely non-surgical. Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which dissolves fat cells under the chin by destroying their membranes. It's identical to the deoxycholic acid occurring naturally in your body.
You'll need between 2 and 6 treatments to reach a desired effect. During a single appointment, Dr. Basner will administer a series of Kybella injections – somewhere between 12 to 20 injections per appointment. In no less than a month, you'll come back for your next appointment, and for up to 6 appointments spaced at least a month apart. The number of appointments depends on how Dr. Basner plans your specific treatment for the degree of under-chin fat you are experiencing.
A Sharper Chin Contour Without Surgery
Kybella was FDA approved in April 2015 and has some of the most innovative advantages we've seen, including:
- FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe under-chin fat
- No anesthesia
- No incisions or sutures
- No downtime – no missed work or social activities
- Long-lasting, potentially permanent results
The series of injections take only about 20 minutes each appointment. But unlike BOTOX® and other injectables, once the series of Kybella appointments are complete, you'll be able to enjoy your results for many, many years. You shouldn't have to come back for a touch up in the years following, unless you gain fat again beneath the chin. The fat cells that are destroyed, are destroyed permanently.
Dr. Basner is proud to offer his patients the most innovative, effective face and body treatments. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, he has many years experience providing both surgical and nonsurgical options for physical rejuvenation.
