You don't have to be overweight or out of shape to have a double chin. In fact, many people who maintain healthy figures or reach their ideal weights find that they still have a stubborn fat deposit under their chin. These can be difficult to target, but treatments like Kybella®️ are specially designed to help you ditch the double chin.
Located in Boca Raton, Florida, Dr. Anthony N. Dardano is a plastic surgeon who specializes in performing both full surgeries and noninvasive methods like Kybella injections. If you want to achieve a slimmer appearance, getting rid of your double chin can be the first step to transforming your face.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA approved form of deoxycholic acid that is injected under the chin to reduce the appearance of submental fat, or a "double chin". It is considered a less invasive alternative to other surgeries like liposuction.
For those who don't want to commit to a cosmetic surgery, Kybella has the potential to give them similarly pleasing results. It is currently the only injectable treatment for double chins.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella is a bile acid similar to the one your body produces to help you re-absorb fat. It works by destroying the fat cells in your chin, slimming it and prevent future fat deposits from forming. Because Kybella is an acid injection, it must be performed by a professional to avoid damage to other cells in the area.
What should I expect from my treatment?
Before getting a Kybella treatment, you should be prepared for the procedure and understand any side-effects. While the risks of side-effects are minimal and considerably less than with traditional cosmetic surgery, you might experience pain, numbness, swelling, redness, and even bruising in the area.
Dr. Dardano will provide you with an ice pack and instructions to deal with the side-effects. Usually, they will clear up in a week or two. You should pick up some over-the-counter pain medicine to deal with any soreness. But overall, this procedure is quite comfortable and should not cause serious pain.
Kybella comes with little downtime and is perfect for anyone who wants results quickly. Following your finished Kybella treatment, you will not need further visits to keep up with the results.
If you're struggling with a double chin, Kybella might be the solution you need. Dr. Anthony N. Dardano is experienced in giving these injections and can give you the care you need.
