If you are interested in restoring youthful contours but aren’t quite ready for a surgical procedure, there are several options that enable you to delay the surgical option. Through pinpointed and exact treatments, you will experience the results you desire without much down time.
If you have had success in weight loss but are having a difficult time eliminating a double chin, Kybella can help you achieve your profile goals. Kybella is the first and only FDA approved procedure for chemically destroying fat cells specific to the removal of a double chin. During the procedure, a precise amount of medication is injected beneath the chin for a nonsurgical, minimally invasive fat reduction. Depending on your unique circumstance, you may have anywhere from two to six treatments which will be placed four to six weeks apart.
Following the procedure, you will be able to return to your normal life right away, with no recovery time necessary. You may, however, experience some swelling, bruising, pain, redness, or areas of hardness that soften with time. Final results will be apparent after your swelling completely subsides, which can take up to eight weeks. However, with weight maintenance, you should experience long lasting change. Dr. Atchison will provide all the details necessary to determine if this procedure is right for you.
