Excess fat under the chin is often referred to as submental fullness, the technical term for a double chin. Your changing profile can be caused by weight gain, the effects of aging, sun damage, and your overall genetic makeup. If you are looking to dramatically improve your moderate to severe fat below the chin, Kybella in The Woodlands at SGK Plastic Surgery can offer a more contoured and lifted appearance.
Does a Kybella treatment hurt?
The process is not painful but can be uncomfortable. Kybella injections will include a lidocaine anesthetic, but you may feel some slight pinching with each injection.
When can I see the results of my Kybella treatment?
Results with Kybella will take a bit of time and patience. Once the fat cells begin to dissolve, your chin will begin to look more sculpted and contoured. Most patients start to see improvement with their submental fullness around three to four weeks. After a series of treatments, your improvements will become quite noticeable.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the patient and how much submental fat they have. To achieve optimal results, most will need four to six treatment sessions. Treatments can be scheduled thirty days apart.
How much time should I plan for a Kybella treatment?
A Kybella treatment can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes.
