What Is KYBELLA?
Even a bit of extra fat in the upper neck area can cause the appearance of a "double chin" that may be bothersome to both women and men. The excess pockets of fat below the chin (the submental area) can be caused by genetics, weight fluctuations, or aging, leading to a weaker jawline and chin for an undefined profile. Roseville, CA medical director Dr. Shahzad Anwar is pleased to offer a new technique to eliminate neck fat and improve the jawline profile at Modern Aesthetics. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is a new nonsurgical treatment for upper neck fat. The active component in KYBELLA is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid that acts similarly to the body's natural DA to break down and absorb fat cells. Once injected beneath the chin, you may see a visible decrease in fat volume. When the fat is removed, the cells will not reform so you can enjoy your new, slimmer profile and defined jawline for years to come.
What Are the Benefits of KYBELLA?
Many Roseville, CA individuals struggle with liking their appearance and jawline. KYBELLA procedures at our Roseville, CA practice could help offer a chin you are confident in, plus other advantages like:
- Little to no recovery time after injections
- Swift results that give you the chin appearance you've always yearned for
- Quick visits that go with your packed schedule
- Noninvasive alternative to surgical procedures
Who Is An Ideal Candidate for KYBELLA?
The best candidates for KYBELLA treatments have excess fat in the upper throat (submental area), creating a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection corrects resistant areas of fat that can't be removed with traditional weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight but diet and exercise have not reduced the fat in your upper neck, KYBELLA may be the right treatment for your needs. While KYBELLA can correct small to moderate pockets of fat in the submental area, significant pockets of fat may be better suited for surgical proceudres like neck liposuction.
How Are KYBELLA Injections Performed?
KYBELLA is done during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Dr. Anwar will typically apply a numbing ointment to the treated area if desired after the skin is cleaned. The injection takes about 15 minutes and comprises multiple small injections targeting the submental area. Patients may need a single treatment to reach their goal while others may need a few treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Modern Aesthetics.
What to Expect After KYBELLA
KYBELLA doesn't need general anesthesia, so you are allowed to leave our office as soon as you are ready to return to your normal routine. You may notice temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness below your chin; however, this shouldn't last more than a few days. Call Modern Aesthetics right away if you are noticing any unusual symptoms, like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not regenerate, the remaining cells can grow larger, so you need to maintain a stable weight after your KYBELLA treatments to keep new pockets of fat from forming. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck appearing tighter and slimmer, and your neckline will be better defined.
First thought when I walked into this office was how beautiful and well lit it was! Amazing customer service. I felt incredibly comfortable with not only Dr. Anwar but also his beautiful wife that assisted me with checking in and filling out my forms. I initially came in for a liquid rhinoplasty consult which Dr. Anwar decided I would not be a good candidate for. I appreciated his honesty and advice about changing facial features pertinent to my ethnic background and had so much respect for him after that. I then asked for his input on creating more balance on my face he then recommended lip fillers. Lip fillers have been on my mind for a while and I knew that if I were ever to get my lips done I would go to him as I’d seen and admired his work on Instagram. So happy I went ahead with the procedure. It’s such a subtle but noticeable change and I love the results so far. I have already recommended Dr. Anwar to friends and family. I will also be coming back for other services in the near future. HIGHLY recommend Modern Aesthetics!
