Kybella(TM) Is Finally Here. Treat Neck Fat With Injections!
KybellaTM is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness (double chin).
Every patient with a double chin due to fat in what we can the preplatysmal fat pad will see a significant reduction in that fat without surgery. Recovery after Kybella treatment is much quicker and easier than after the alternative, liposuction.
The procedure is fully tailored to the patient. A patient may have 1 to 3 treatments with 1 to 2 vials per treatment depending on the amount of correction desired. The treatments are generally spaced between 6 to 8 weeks apart. For patients that maintain a normal to healthy lifestyle, results are permanent.
After the procedure, the primary side effect you will notice is swelling. This can be noticeable for as little as two days to as long as three weeks and is greater in those with larger volumes of treated fat and higher doses. Older patients, with more skin laxity, will feel that the swelling takes longer to resolve than those with younger and/or tighter skin.
The treatment can be modified if this is an issue for you, in that smaller doses given over more treatments will result in less swelling per treatment. Also, the swelling is always greatest with the first treatment compared to the second or third, even with the same treatment dose.
Spacing the treatments 6 to 8 weeks apart is ideal, although when procedure was introduced a treatment every four weeks was recommended. By waiting a bit more, you will see the results from the first or prior treatment more fully. Some patients may decide they don't need to do more.
The results are permanent: once the adipocytes (fat cells) die, they do not grow back. Any remaining cells will get larger when you put on weight and smaller when you lose weight, just as all the fat cells in your body will. Because there are fewer cells to become larger in the treated area, you will not put on as much fat in the treated area if you gain weight.
The costs will vary based on the amount of area needing treating .
