Kybella® in Philadelphia, PA
It’s not unusual for people to experience a double chin as they grow older. Until recently, the only way to cure a double chin was through surgery, but thanks to Kybella®, that’s no longer the case. Main Line Plastic Surgery, serving patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania, proudly offers Kybella® injections to those who would like to rectify a double chin without going under the knife.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the first-of-its-kind treatment FDA approved for eliminating submental fat below the chin, more commonly referred to as a “double chin.” It contains deoxycholic acid, a substance that solubilizes fat and then is reabsorbed by the body. This makes it very safe and effective when used in the manner prescribed.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
In clinical trials, Kybella® has provided exceptional results for patients over the age of 18. Its effectiveness on younger patients as well as in pregnant women has not yet been studied.
Planning your Kybella® Treatment
More than one injection is typically needed in order to completely reduce your double chin. Most of our patients require between four and six injections spaced about a month or so apart. Keep this in mind when planning your Kybella® treatment so that you can schedule appointments at the appropriate intervals.
How is Kybella® Performed?
Kybella® is performed by administering a series of injections containing the patented solution into the neck area. As many as 50 micro-injections could be needed during each session. Dr. Jean will determine the best location for your injections based upon the amount of submental fat you have and how it has settled.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost in Philadelphia?
Medical spa procedures such as Kybella® injections are highly customized, meaning that a number of variables are used to calculate the price. In addition to payment through cash, personal check, and major credit/debit cards, we also accept CareCredit® financing. *CareCredit® works like a credit card, offering low-interest rates and easily affordable payments to help you afford Kybella® on your terms.
What to Expect* after Kybella®
*Since Kybella® is a multi-step procedure, you will not notice the full results all at once.* Rather, you will gradually see your double chin fade after each injection. Submental fat should be completely reduced within a few weeks following your final injection.
Recovering from Kybella®
You may notice some swelling right after Kybella®. A high number of injections increases your risk for swelling, bruising, and noticeable redness. All of these side effects are rather minor and should go away on their own within a few days.
Thanks to the makers of Kybella®, submental fat underneath the chin can now be reduced, restoring a more youthful appearance to the neck and face.
