Kybella at Houston Plastic Surgery

Kybella - Dr. Michael J. Streitmann MDDespite your best efforts, you’ll sometimes find yourself faced with an issue that no amount of diet or exercise can fix. One of those issues can be submental fat, more commonly known as a ‘double chin’. If you find you’ve run out of options to deal with this particular trouble spot, we have good news for you. You have another option.

Kybella: A non-surgical solution to the ‘double chin’.

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment available to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. Kybella works by destroying fat cells in the treatment area. Once these cells have been destroyed, they will no longer have the ability to store or accumulate fat.

Kybella is a specialized non-surgical injection specifically for those concerned about a double chin. If you’re wondering how to get rid of a double chin without surgery right here in the Houston area, Kybella is the solution! It has been used successfully by thousands of people.

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved treatment that targets the fat deposits beneath the chin. Although it cannot change the shape or size of facial bones, it eliminates targeted fat deposits within weeks. This reduces the prominence of the chin and the characteristic “doubling.”

Preparing for Kybella

Because it is non-invasive, there are relatively few risks associated with Kybella. Still, it’s important to meet with your doctor to discuss your needs and get a pre-treatment evaluation. Only a specially-trained expert can determine whether Kybella can help you achieve your goals.

As with any medical treatment, be sure to disclose any health concerns and current medications. You may be asked to make some minor adjustments in the period just before treatment – for example, to discontinue any skin care regimen that affects the chin.

Kybella Solution Steps

Kybella consists of a series of multiple small injections under the chin. The process takes about 15-20 minutes and will need to be repeated anywhere from 1-5 times based on your goals. Results begin to accrue after the first treatment. Within a few weeks of the final one, you’ll understand why so many patients think of Kybella as how to get rid of a double chin!

Kybella Recovery Process

Kybella can help most patients get rid of a double chin, but there is some downtime involved. Many patients will experience some swelling, bruising, or numbness around the injection sites. If you notice any unusual symptoms, you should schedule a follow-up appointment. Additional treatments can be scheduled about one month apart.
