Even a bit of excess fat in the upper throat area will create the presence of a "double chin" that may be unwanted to both women and men. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) can be caused by genetics, weight fluctuations, or aging/aging that lead to a softer jawbone and chin for a less-defined profile. Oklahoma City, OK plastic surgeon Dr. Clinton Webster is happy to provide a revolutionary technique to reduce neck fat at Revive Robotic Hair Solutions. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical option for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid, which performs similarly like the body's natural DA to attack and absorb fat cells. After it has been injected beneath the chin, you can see a visible decrease in the amount of fat. After the fat is removed, the cells will not regenerate, so you can enjoy your new, slender neck and defined jawline for years to come.
The ideal candidates for Kybella injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted volume. Kybella corrects resistant areas of fat that can't be removed with common weight loss techniques since it is determined by genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not been able to eliminate the fat in your submental area, Kybella may be the correct option for your goals. While Kybella can be used to treat small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, significant pockets of fat may be better treated with surgical neck liposuction.
Kybella treatments are done during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. We typically apply a numbing gel to the injected area, if desired, once the skin is clean. The injection lasts around 15 minutes, which includes a few small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may require a single treatment to get to their desired look, while some may want a few injections spaced three weeks between each appointment.
What to Expect
Because Kybella doesn't need lasting anesthesia, patients are allowed to leave our office when they are ready to return to their daily routine. Patients may notice short-term swelling, numbness, or bruising below the chin, although this shouldn't last more than a couple of days. Contact Revive Robotic Hair Solutions right away if you are noticing any unusual symptoms, including difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat affected by Kybella do not regenerate, the cells left can grow larger, so patients need to keep a stable weight after their Kybella treatments to keep new pockets of fat from developing. The results after this procedure leave your neck appearing tighter and slimmer and your neckline will be better defined.
