Weight gain is never a happy subject for someone who has put on an excessive amount of weight. What is the result? Love handles or muffin top, a belly, back fat or chin fat. We can camouflage or hide most of it except for the fat on the face. Those who gain weight in their face aren’t able to cover it up, so the only alternative is to lose weight. However, many people struggle with chin fat and it may have nothing to do with their weight at all. Previously the only alternative was liposuction. While liposuction is still a smart choice, many people do not want to have any type of incisions or downtime. The downtime is minimal if you have laser liposuction vs. traditional liposuction, but the very thought of it makes some people nervous.
A new solution that has recently been approved by the FDA is called KYBELLA®. KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness or otherwise known as “chin fat.” It is comprised of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once KYBELLA® is injected into the fat layer it causes destruction of fat cells. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot regenerate.
Some of the side effects may be bruising and swelling, but most patients are comfortable even without a local anesthetic. One to two treatments are recommended, however each treatment is customized depending on the person.
