Surveys show that eight out of 10 people in the United States have a double chin and feel self-conscious about it. Kybella™ is the first non-surgical treatment to reduce double chins and is approved by the FDA. Dr. Graivier is the first physician in Georgia to offer this break-through technology.
When to Consider Kybella™
- If you feel you are looking less attractive than you desire
- If you are self-conscious about your chin profile
- If you have accumulated fat under your chin even after diet and exercise
- If increased weight has resulted in additional fat under your chin
- If you feel you look much older than you should
Kybella™ is an injectable treatment designed to reduce double chins. It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that is able to destroy fat cells. When injected into the skin, Kybella™ is designed to destroy fat cells so they are unable to store or accumulate more fat.
This procedure does not tighten or reduce loose skin. It only targets destruction of the fat cells. Dr. Graivier will customize your treatment plan based on your chin profile and desired outcome.
Most patients will need at least 6 treatments, spaced one month apart. Each treatment will normally take less than 30 minutes.
Kybella™ is a non-surgical treatment and patients receive multiple injections at one time.
Some patients will experience swelling, bruising, limited pain and some redness around the injection sites.
For most patients, the recovery time is brief and the results are long-lasting.
Many patients begin to see optimal results after three to four treatments.
