Kybella® vs. Liposuction for Double Chins
Traditional liposuction is an incredibly effective way to reduce excess fat and sculpt the underlying facial structure. The procedure involves local anesthesia and suctioning away unwanted fat beneath the chin. However, despite its effectiveness, traditional liposuction requires minor incisions and a few weeks of downtime for recovery. If you are worried about taking time off of work or are concerned about side effects and complications, you may want to consider the advantages of Kybella® injections.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable that uses deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the body to help break down dietary fat. With Kybella®, several small injections are made under the chin directly into the fat pockets. These injections have been proven to be both safe and effective with very little risk of side effects or complications. After a series of treatments, most patients see dramatic results, with a slimmer and more defined jawline. Furthermore, Kybella® requires no downtime, making it the ideal choice for busy lifestyles.
Which One Is Right for Me?
The best way to determine which procedure is right for you is through a consultation with Dr. Jessica Belz, who can assess your individual needs and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan. With her help, you can finally take charge of your double chin and reclaim your confidence!
