View Kybella Chin Fat Removal Procedure
Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring Kybella® Treatment in Webster, League City, Friendswood, and Houston, TX
Patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area can eliminate their double chin with new FDA approved Kybella® at Clear Lake Dermatology. This exciting and revolutionary new procedure involves melting away stubborn submental fat, also known as a double chin. Kybella® takes only a short amount of time to complete (the procedure can be finished over your lunch hour), and in general, patients are able to return home quickly and will be able to resume their normal activities almost immediately afterwards.
Kybella® is unique in that it literally melts away fat, causing your double chin to actually disappear. Because of the extremely limited options for correction, submental fat underneath your chin has been an under-treated aesthetic issue. This is unfortunate because only lines and wrinkles cause more concern among patients. The fact of the matter is that a double chin can make you look older and heavier no matter what your age or weight. And, in many cases, a double chin or submental fat doesn’t respond positively to lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, oftentimes because hereditary genetics is the underlying cause of your double chin.
Kybella is a safe, non-surgical procedure, and your treatment is performed in our comfortable and relaxing Clear Lake Dermatology offices. Before your treatment begins, any pain relief necessary will be administered if appropriate in your case. Then, using a special grid, we will carefully draw the boundaries for the injections on your skin. Using the temporary grid marked on your chin as a guide, you will receive 14-50 injections, depending on your particular needs. The procedure is very simple and straightforward, taking roughly 20 minutes to complete, and the procedure can be done over your lunch hour, and there is no downtime or complicated recovery process. With Kybella, you might require a few treatments spaced out at least a month apart to achieve the results you desire.
The best thing about Kybella is that it’s less invasive than any surgical approaches to addressing submental fat. You avoid all the negative issues involved with surgery, such as anesthesia and other risks connected with surgery, including the risk of infection and a longer downtime. Most patients see noticeable results after 2-3 treatment sessions. The number of treatments required however will depend on the amount of fat being eradicated. Kybella recovery is usually quick and uneventful. At most, patients report some very minor bruising and swelling that resolves within several days. Mild discomfort may be experienced at the injection sites but is easily treated with over the counter pain relievers. Most patients return right back to their routine activities on the same day as their procedure.
