Kybella Treatment in Westfield
Minimizing Troublesome "Double Chin" Fat
Patients who visit Burnett Plastic Surgery in Westfield, NJ often ask Dr. Carlos Burnett about the options available for dealing with a double chin, referred to medically as submental fullness. Both men and women may have extra fat in this area due to weight gain, aging, or genetics. Regardless of diet and exercise, this stubborn area of excess fat can make patients look heavier than they truly are. Approximately 68% of men and women said they were bothered by this.
Thanks to continued advances in dermatological care, patients now have a non-surgical option for a treatment called Kybella. Kybella is an injectable formulated with deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that is naturally occurring in the body. It breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When injected into the neck area, it destroys the fat cells present. Once this has been done, the results are permanent, as the cells can no longer accumulate or store fat.
Kybella treatment is often done within approximately 20 minutes at the office. There are minimal side effects that may occur, including swelling, numbness, redness, and bruising, but this is short-term and will go away within days of treatment. The results are achieved over the course of time, so patience is necessary. This is extremely beneficial, however, for men and women who want their results to be natural-looking and gradual.
The perfect candidate for Kybella is any adult who is bothered by submental fullness, wants to avoid invasive surgery, and has tried to address their condition with improved diet and exercise. Thousands of patients worldwide have enjoyed the benefits of this treatment and love the permanent results achieved in their chin and neck profile.
