Kybella in Long Island, NY
Do you try to hide your double chin? Do you want to eliminate it, but do not want surgery? Kybella® may be the answer. Eunice E. Park, MD, who is dual board-certified in facial plastic surgery and ear, nose, and throat (otolaryngology), offers Kybella® for men and women in Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York.
What is Kybella®?
Having a double chin not only makes you look older but also makes you look unhealthy. Weight is not the only reason why people develop double chins. Genetics plays a role, and unfortunately, this means that diet and exercise cannot tone and tighten your jawline and the area under your chin. Facial liposuction may be an option, but not every patient needs that level of correction. Kybella® is an injectable product that contains a special enzyme that naturally eliminates fat. The enzyme is found in the digestive system where it targets and destroys excess fat.
Benefits of Kybella®
Our patients prefer Kybella® because the treatment:
- Requires little downtime
- Gradually destroys excess fat cells
- Takes less than one hour
- May offer a long-term solution for double chins
- May help define your jawline and the area under the chin
Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?
The primary considerations for Kybella® are your current weight, location of the fat and skin quality. You should be near your ideal weight. Kybella® is FDA-approved for treating fat that develops from the underside of the chin to the top of your throat. You should have good skin elasticity so that your skin conforms to the treatment area once the fat is eliminated.
What to Expect from Kybella®
Kybella® is administered with a small gauge needle. Multiple injections are made at specific points to maximize the fat-reducing benefits and preserve a natural appearance. You may experience some localized tenderness, bruising and swelling at each injection site. Multiple treatments are required, and you may see improvements within 6-12 weeks.
You may develop fat in the area if you gain weight or as part of the natural aging process. Following a healthy and active lifestyle may extend the results of your Kybella® treatments.
