In recent years, more and more plastic surgeons are adopting minimally-invasive and non-surgical means to remove fat. One of the latest treatments, Kybella, is still generating a considerable media buzz due to its unique capacity to correct the dreaded double chin.
Approved by the FDA in 2015, this injectable drug is identical to the deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that absorbs fats. According to a recent report, this treatment “will kill and destroy the fat cells and then they’re naturally reabsorbed into the body over time” . The procedure is known to be quick and, as many patients attest, very painless.
Another report describes it as a “lunch-time” procedure, meaning that you can take care of it in less than half an hour . It also requires no downtime, thus allowing patients to immediately resume their regular daily activities immediately after treatment. The results manifest in 3-4 weeks, meaning that you don’t have to wait long to experience a dramatic and positive change in your appearance.
Because this treatment involves no surgical intervention, the results will not necessarily last you a lifetime. However, since Kybella actually destroys fat cells, it delivers long-lasting results that may last for at least two years according to some research studies.
As a highly regarded plastic surgeon specializing in minimally-invasive procedures, Dr. Michael Omidi is proud to offer this effective new treatment. If you are seeking to get rid of your double chin without surgery, schedule a free consultation and see if Kybella is right for you.
