Kybella Procedure Review – The Solution to Double Chin

About 70% of adults are bothered by their chin area and by the fat existing under their chin. This can be a result of genetics, age or increase in weight. However, the predicament of a double chin can now be completely solved, without surgery, by a new treatment called Kybella. Kybella is the only double chin treatment that is non-surgical in nature.

How it works

Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid that is used to contour the chin area. The acid exists naturally in the body but when concentrated in an injection to the chin, it destroys the fat cells by breaking the fatty membrane to release the fatty contents that are later excreted naturally by the body. It has been approved by the FDA for use as a cosmetic treatment.

During the treatment, a numbing cream is applied to the part of the chin that requires treatment. A lattice of temporary ink is then applied to guide the doctor on where to inject. To decrease the risks to the surrounding nerves and muscles under the chin, it is most important to have the procedure performed by a certified physician, trained specifically in the administration of the drug. After the procedure, the chin area will be swollen, a clear indicator of the product at work.

Shaping and redefining the neck helps the person look, act and feel younger, thereby motivating them to keep their chins up.


Kybella or chin lipo?

Unlike chin lipo, Kybella is a series of injections with no leaking wounds, no anaesthesia and only a little bit downtime. The downtime will involve up to six rounds of injections just over a short period of time. The injections will result in redness, bruising, swelling and hardness. Not everybody prefers that type of hassle, which is why some people choose a once-and-done treatment like liposuction which involves a couple of weeks' recovery and several appointments which will require some injections.


Risks associated with Kybella

Despite the popularity of the treatment, it comes with risks such as tissue damage outside the area of treatment such as skin, fascia, bone and muscle due to improper injection. Other risks are uneven fat removal, necrotic tissue, hard lumps, leftovers and infections.


What’s right?

If you are unsure whether to go with the liposuction or Kybella option, it is advisable that you consult with two or three trusted cosmetic surgeons. While the idea of injection may be more appealing to surgery, the results might fail to meet your expectations, or you might just turn out to be the ideal candidate for Kybella.
