If you have been thinking about liposuction or surgery to improve your chin and jawline, you will be pleased to know that Kybella is safer, faster, and more affordable. While liposuction, jawline contouring, neck lift, and double chin surgery have a moderate recovery time, our patients can enjoy similar benefits without the risks, downtime, and side effects of plastic surgery. See the facial injection experts at Boston Medical Aesthetics to find out if non-surgical chin fat removal or jaw reduction is appropriate for you.
Kybella is FDA-approved for double chin reduction. A double chin is medically known as submental fat. Kybella is a highly effective injectable product that uses deoxycholic acid, which is a safe, natural enzyme that destroys fat cells for a more defined jawline and chin. While the results are not as drastic as a neck lift or jaw contouring surgery, Kybella provides noticeable slimming with permanent results.
Our nurse practitioner may suggest a series of Kybella injections to obtain your desired result. While you will recognize an improvement with simply one Kybella treatment, clinical trials indicate most patients required multiple treatments for a dramatic result.
The number of treatments needed varies depending on the amount of submental fat. Every patient is unique. The best way to find out how many Kybella treatments you may need for double chin reduction is to speak with our injector, so she can examine your chin and suggest the appropriate number of treatments.
For patients who want to reduce a double chin without plastic surgery, Kybella double chin reduction is an excellent alternative. After speaking with our nurse practitioner, Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC, you will decide whether Kybella will achieve the results you want. Patients can receive Kybella treatments the same day as the consultation if desired. Performed in our safe and comfortable treatment room, Kybella is a quick, low-pain procedure that takes as little as 15 minutes to inject. Our goal is to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
A topical anesthetic, injectable local anesthetic, or ice may be applied to the skin to reduce injection site pain. Some patients have reported that using ice to numb the injection site is most effective. If you have any concerns about pain during Kybella treatment, rest assured that the procedure is quick and well-tolerated. Most parents describe it as mild to moderate discomfort that lasts only a few minutes. In merely 5-6 weeks, you will notice a slimmer jawline with visible chin fat reduction.
Your safety is our top priority. Our advanced nurse practitioner, Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC, is one of the most sought-after facial injectors for Boston Kybella treatments. Jennifer has studied aesthetic medicine under the guidance of experts at Yale University School of Medicine, Boston University, and Harvard. Her advanced training ensures that our patients get the best Kybella results.
Kybella double chin removal is a permanent solution for removing chin fat and jawline contouring. The treatment permanently kills fat cells. Results are not instant: the fat cells will be broken down and then safely eliminated by the body, in approximately 5-6 weeks. You will notice a more contoured jawline, and, at this point, the results are permanent.
Those fat cells will not grow back after Kybella, however, if you gain weight, the remaining fat cells may still grow.. It is best to reach a stable body weight prior to getting Kybella. Repeat treatment may be necessary to remove more chin fat if desired. Injections should be spaced at least 6 weeks apart for the best results.
The most common Kybella side effects are temporary swelling, redness, and tenderness at the injection site. Bruising may occur in some patients, even when it is injected correctly. This is normal. Bruises on the chin tend to be small and can be easily covered with foundation or concealer. It is best to schedule your Kybella appointment at least 2 weeks before special events for this reason.
