Kybella® for Double Chin Removal – Nashville, TN
If it feels like you’ve tried every diet and exercise plan in the world, but still struggle with unwanted fullness under the chin, you aren’t alone. Many people have successfully toned and tightened other problem areas such as their arms, abs, and legs by following a workout plan and sticking to a balanced diet, yet still find themselves with this lack of jawline contour.
The good news is that scientific breakthroughs are continually advancing in the field of cosmetic procedures. We now have a vast array of safe and nonsurgical ways to improve many familiar face and body concerns for a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
A popular and minimally invasive treatment for submental fat is Kybella® – the first and only fat-dissolving injection to reduce the unwanted fullness under the chin. With minimal downtime, this treatment works by killing fat cells and stimulating the body’s natural inflammatory processes. Here’s our guide to how it works.
What Is Kybella®?
A substance found in your digestive tract, called deoxycholic acid, permanently kills fat cells by destroying the cell membrane. Kybella® is an FDA-approved prescription injectable treatment that utilizes an acid naturally produced by your body, which progressively reduces the fat cells that cause a double chin. Through a series of treatments, your lymphatic and circulatory systems clear the dissolved fat through your body’s natural processes. With sufficient treatments and exceptional anatomic knowledge and expertise, this non-surgical contouring procedure can give you an enhanced profile so you can love your selfie. Kybella® effectively destroys cells permanently, which provides longer-lasting results.
What makes someone a good candidate for Kybella®?
A variety of factors – including heredity, hormonal fluctuations, and weight gain – cause people to develop unwanted fullness in your jawline profile. The best candidates for Kybella® treatments have genetic, rather than weight-related, submental fat deposits. A consultation by a well-trained expert in jawline rejuvenation can determine if you are a candidate for Kybella.
What is the difference between Kybella® and liposuction for double chin removal?
Kybella® is a safe and effective alternative to surgery that provides jawline rejuvenation. Liposuction is an invasive surgical technique that requires healing time, whereas Kybella® eliminates the need for incisions, general anesthesia, and possible scarring.
Is Kybella® painful?
During the procedure, we use a tiny needle and most patients report only minor discomfort. A special icing technique is used to lessen discomfort. If you are worried about pain, ask your injector about other ways to reduce discomfort.
How long do Kybella® treatments take?
Kybella® is an incredibly quick, convenient treatment that takes about 15 minutes and can be scheduled end of the day.
Can I get Kybella® injected anywhere else?
Currently, Kybella® is only FDA-approved for double chin removal, however, since Dr. Sherman has taught physicians nationally and internationally, Sherman Aesthetic Center (SAC) is one of the few practices in the country that offers off-label jowl treatments. The Kybella injections can melt away and reduce unwanted jowls that make you look aged and tired. Sherman Aesthetic Center is always on the cutting edge of new aesthetic advancements.
How many Kybella® injections will I need?
Every patient starts out with a different amount of fat, so the number of treatments you will need depends on how much fatty tissue has developed under your chin and in the jowl area. One of our master injectors will be able to give you an estimated treatment number and pattern customized to you.
When can I expect to see results from Kybella® injections?
Will my health insurance cover Kybella®?
Though it is an FDA-cleared prescription medication for double chin removal, Kybella® is a cosmetic procedure and is never covered by insurance.
Are there any side effects?
A series of clinical trials showed an excellent safety record with Kybella®. The most common side effects include swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness around the injection sites.
The initial swelling may briefly make the fullness under your chin more noticeable, but this is the nature of the mechanism of action of the treatment. The swelling is caused by Kybella® actively breaking down the fat cells, so that means the treatment is working.
Where’s the best place to get Kybella® in Nashville?
Sherman Aesthetic Center is proud to be the premier Kybella® treatment center in the Nashville area. Dr. Deborah Sherman and her Master Injectors have extensive training in Kybella treatments. Dr. Sherman has trained physicians in Italy, Spain, Korea, Australia, and Scandinavia, so her experience is truly global.
