Double chin? No worries. Now you can tone and tighten that area of fat without surgery! Kybella® is an innovative injectable treatment that melts the fat associated with a double chin. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David B. Brothers, Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta offers Kybella® for men and women in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, and surrounding communities in Georgia.
What is Kybella®?
Dr. Brothers is excited to introduce his patients to Kybella®, the first FDA-approved injectable treatment for the embarrassing double chin. Before Kybella®, men and women had only two options for treating their double chins — liposuction and a neck lift. While these procedures can tone and tighten the neck and jawline, often times people had to undergo surgery that caused more trauma than necessary. With Kybella®, you only need to have injectable treatments over a period of time and watch the fat gradually disappear.
Benefits of Kybella®
Kybella® is the first line of defense against the excess fat that develops under the chin and along the jawline because it:
- Requires no downtime
- Is a non-surgical solution for submental fat and fullness
- Provides an option for men and women who do not need surgery
- Uses the body’s natural processes to melt away the fat
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Kybella®?
The primary consideration for Kybella® treatments is the elasticity of your skin. Without enough elasticity, your skin will hang loosely under your chin once the fat disappears. Another consideration is the location of the fat which should be between the bottom point of the chin and the top of the neck. Kybella® is also not recommended for men and women who have muscular banding on their necks.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Kybella®?
Because Kybella® is a new treatment, few clinicians are experienced in the administration of the product. Dr. Brothers is uniquely qualified to perform Kybella® treatments and achieve the optimum outcomes. We recommend that you schedule a consultation and entrust your care to Dr. Brothers.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Kybella®?
Dr. Brothers and our medical aestheticians are trained in the administration of Kybella®. Multiple injections are made along the fat deposits using a fine gauge needle. You may feel a slight pinch followed by a mild pressure sensation as the product is injected into the soft tissue.
How Long Does It Take to Administer Kybella®?
Each treatment with Kybella® takes less than 30 minutes.
What to Expect After Kybella®
You may have some minor tenderness and bruising around the injection sites for the first few days. You will see a gradual reduction in the submental fat after each treatment.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable product that produces absolutely no scars.
When Will I See Results?
Clinical studies show that patients have the best results with Kybella® when they receive six treatments that are scheduled at one-month intervals. During the four weeks between treatments, you will see a reduction in the fat.
How Long Will the Results of Kybella® Last?
The results of Kybella® treatments are permanent because the fat cells are destroyed by the active ingredient in the product. Your jowls and neck may still develop other signs of aging, though.
Additional Procedures to Enhance Your Kybella® Results
Dr. Brothers may recommend other dermal fillers and injectables to correct lines and wrinkles on your face. The overall effect of Kybella® and these other treatments is quite dramatic.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost in Atlanta?
The cost of Kybella® is based on the number of treatments and the amount of product that is needed for each session. After your consultation, we will provide a detailed cost that includes the applicable fees for Dr. Brothers and his surgical staff as well as any necessary medical supplies and your follow-up care. Financing is available through CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit, and we also accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards.
