The Sunset Difference: Kybella. Treat a Double Chin Without Liposuction
Quite often, a double chin can negatively impact the overall appearance of one’s face, and make a person look and feel older and heavier than they are. But there’s good news: Sunset Cosmetic Surgery provides Kybella® for Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and beyond. The FDA-approved injectable treatment works to reduce submental neck fat (aka a double chin). There’s no incision, no surgery, no downtime. Kybella® treatments simply involve a series of injections to reduce the number of fat cells in the targeted area.
What Does Kybella Do?
The FDA approved Kybella® in 2015 for the reduction of submental fullness, or chin fat, without the need for surgery. Its special formulation is a synthesized form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells are unable to store or accumulate fat. Patients often respond positively after treatments, reporting a reduction in the amount of fat in the area under the chin, as well as enhanced emotional impact when asked how happy, bothered, self-conscious, embarrassed, old, and overweight they felt after their session.ESTD
