Many patients strive to achieve a sculpted facial aesthetic, but certain obstacles can get in the way of this cosmetic goal. For example, both men and women can experience unattractive fat accumulation under the chin as a result of genetics, weight gain, or aging. Submental fullness (a double chin) often produces a prematurely aged or heavy-set appearance in spite of at-home efforts to get rid of it. Liposuction used to be the only tried-and-true solution for slimming the chin area, but KYBELLA® if the first FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment that naturally dissolves submental fat. Those who select this method of fat reduction can enjoy chiseled lower facial contours without the need for downtime or general anesthesia.
Dr. Hotchandani will first assess your condition and aesthetic objectives to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Patients may consider this treatment if they consume a balanced diet, exercise regularly, cannot or will not consider surgery, and struggle with unwanted submental fat. Those who are dedicated to healthy eating habits and regular exercise are the best candidates for KYBELLA® and are likely to enjoy longer-lasting results.
Customized treatment with KYBELLA® is performed in-office by adding lidocaine for comfort and takes between 15 and 20 minutes to complete. Multiple injections are strategically placed in the treatment area to evenly distribute the product and achieve results that complement the patient’s unique facial anatomy.
