Kybella® Beverly Hills
If you are one of the many people who have a double chin that does not respond to dieting - don’t despair. The FDA recently approved an injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin. It is approved for those with moderate to severe accumulations of submental (under chin) fat and each treatment only takes about 30 minutes. Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon Dr. Torkian provides Kybella to his patients, helping them get rid of under chin fat and double chins. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Torkian if you are interested in getting beautiful results from Kybella Beverly Hills patients love.
Kybella is the trade name for a naturally occurring substance found in the body; deoxycholic acid. This substance helps the body absorb fats and when injected into the area below the chin, causes these fat cells to disintegrate and be eliminated through the natural processes of the body.
Permanent safe elimination of double chin fat
Kybella destroys fat cells by destroying the membrane surrounding the cell. Once the fat cells have been eliminated they are permanently gone even in cases of future weight gain. Liposuction is the only treatment that can create the same effect but many patients do not want to undergo surgery and an anesthetic to address their double chin.
Following FDA approval, there has been an increased demand for Kybella and Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Behrooz Torkian has noticed that men are lining up for this treatment often more than women. This may be due to many of them being professionals who wear suits and ties every day. Having excessive fat under the chin creates a ‘no neck’ look which they say is not only unappealing but is very uncomfortable.
Kybella treatment takes less time than a manicure
Kybella treatments are short and virtually painless. After applying a local anesthetic, several well-placed and shallow injections are made into the fatty tissue. After their Beverly Hills Kybella treatment, patients can return to their normal activities with no tell tale signs of treatment.
Shortly following treatment there may be minor bruising and some swelling but this resolves within a few days and is not noticeable.
Depending on the amount of fat, most patients will receive 2 to 4 sessions spaced about a month apart. The effects of treatment begin to be seen within a few weeks and after the full course of treatment, patients report a very high satisfaction rate. A big advantage to Kybella is that the fat is permanently gone just as it would be with liposuction.
Risks for Kybella double chin treatment
Kybella is a very safe procedure when administered by a trained professional. While the active ingredient is a replica of a naturally occurring substance, misplacing it could cause cell or nerve damage to the surrounding skin. Receiving the safest Kybella Beverly Hills has available is routine at Torkian Facial Plastic Surgery. As a double board certified plastic surgeon specializing in the face, neck and head, Dr. Torkian is eminently qualified to safely inject Kybella into the fatty tissue under the chin.
Candidates for Kybella
Kybella is safe for almost every adult individual fighting the appearance of a double chin. Patients should be in good overall health and not be suffering from any infection in the area to be treated.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Torkian will ask you questions concerning your general health and any conditions that may indicate Kybella is not a good choice for you. Since this is very rare, it is likely that within a few short weeks you should be seeing your double chin melt away giving you a chiseled jaw line and a firm, taut neck profile.
Minimally invasive cosmetic enhancement
Correcting a double chin is among the many cosmetic flaws that are being treated with minimally invasive procedures and products. Dr. Torkian has many patients who are not yet ready for surgical remedies to treat more pronounced signs of aging, and is delighted to be able to offer treatments such as Kybella at his Beverly Hills practice.
