A double chin often develops when you gain weight, but you can end up with the same problem due to aging or genetic tendencies, even if you don’t put on extra pounds. No matter what caused your double chin, you can regain a slim profile with Kybella® treatments from Sidiq Aldabbagh, MD FACOG, at Trusted Women’s Health Center. Dr. Aldabbagh has extensive experience carefully and artistically injecting Kybella to produce exceptional results. Call one of the two offices in Miami, Florida, or book online to learn how you can eliminate your double chin today.
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable medicine that eliminates excess fat under your chin. While most people call this problem a double chin, the medical term is submental fat.
Kybella contains a substance called deoxycholic acid. Your liver naturally produces deoxycholic acid and uses it to break down fats. When Dr. Aldabbagh injects the synthetic form in Kybella, it does the same thing: It breaks down the fat cells under your skin.
As your body gradually removes the cellular waste, the fat permanently disappears, and you regain a slim profile.
Most people can safely get Kybella injections. However, you may need to postpone the treatment if you:
Dr. Aldabbagh at Trusted Women’s Health Center reviews your medical history to be sure Kybella is safe for you.
Kybella requires multiple, carefully placed injections to reduce the fat evenly and enhance your facial contours. To accomplish that, Dr. Aldabbagh begins by marking the optimal injection locations. Then, he applies a topical anesthetic and injects a small amount of Kybella at each injection site.
Dr. Aldabbagh gives you self-care instructions for the treated area and answers any questions you may have before you leave the office.
You can return to your usual routine as soon as your treatment is finished, but you may want to plan for downtime because you may have redness, bruising, pain, or hardness in the treated area.
During your consultation, Dr. Aldabbagh discusses the number of treatment sessions you may need based on the amount of fat under your chin. You can have up to six sessions spaced at least one month apart if needed to achieve optimal results.
Kybella destroys the fat cells, so they’re gone for good, and your results last for the long run. However, if you still have fat cells left in the area and gain weight in the future, those cells may take in more fat and enlarge.
