Submental Fat, typically referred to as a “double chin,” is a very common complaint among both men and women. Influenced by factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, submental fat is often difficult to reduce through diet and exercise alone. Previously, only surgical procedures such as liposuction or a neck lift could improve the contour of the neck. Now, a new option is available. KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental fat.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat in the body. Administered through a series of injections under the chin, KYBELLA effectively destroys fat cells, preventing the storage or accumulation of fat. For this reason, KYBELLA is considered a permanent, non-surgical treatment option.
As i mentioned its too early to say much about the procedure benefits but Dr Sinha is a wonderful doctor to work with. Very thorough with his research – The options he gives you along with pro’s and con’s for each. Overall a great doctor to work with. Would highly recommend him!!!
Dr. Sinha will work with you to design a customized treatment plan to improve the profile of your neck and chin. Treatment sessions are spaced at least one month apart, with the majority of patients experiencing visible results after two to four visits. However, Dr. Sinha may recommend and schedule up to six more KYBELLA injection sessions.
If you are unhappy with your appearance due to submental fullness, or for additional information about KYBELLA, contact the Atlanta Institute for Facial Aesthetic Surgery to schedule a consultation.
