Kybella™ in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Do you have extra fat or skin below your chin? As you age, your body processes fat less efficiently, often resulting in a “double chin”. Kybella™, created to help eliminate chin fat, is available for the residents of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County at the Weston Center for Plastic Surgery.
What is Kybella™?
Kybella™ is an injectable cosmetic treatment that assists with fat absorption and destroys fat cells. Prior to Kybella™, liposuction was the only way to remove fat from the chin and contour the neck and jawline. The treatment’s main ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that helps you absorb fat.
Roughly 80% of people with a double chin are self-conscious about this area. The neck, jawline, and chin do not respond to diet and exercise like the rest of the body. Most patients need two to four Kybella™ treatments to see a significant change in their chin profile. Each treatment is delivered a month apart.
In clinical trials, over 80% of Kybella™ recipients reported significant fat reduction beneath the chin.
What are the Benefits of Kybella™?
FDA approved in May of 2015, Kybella™ offers significant benefits compared to liposuction or surgery for the neck and chin area:
- Treatment takes less than an hour.
- No incisions or scars.
- Elimination of fat cells is permanent.
- There is no downtime or recovery period.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella™?
If you would like to change the appearance of your neck, jawline, or double chin, you may be a good candidate for Kybella™. The Weston Center for Plastic Surgery treats many patients who have either lost a large amount of weight and still see skin and fat in the chin area or patients who have yet to lose the weight but are bothered by this area. It is also a great option for patients experiencing the signs of aging in the chin and neck area. This injectable treatment is for patients who do not wish to undergo surgery.
How Much Does Kybella™ Cost?
The cost of Kybella™ varies from patient to patient. Depending on the condition of your neck and chin area, multiple injections are usually required. Oftentimes, patients opt to combine this procedure with another dermal filler treatment, further altering the final cost. Financing is available.
