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.
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.
“Just had my first kybella treatment and can’t say enough good things about how comfortable Dr. Sinha and his staff made me feel and how well they guided me through the process. It’s been only 4 weeks and one treatment and I am so excited about the possibilities. I would recommend Dr. Sinha to anyone without hesitation.”
