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.
