Am I An Ideal Candidate For Kybella®?
Kybella® is a safe and effective procedure for a wide range of patients. Our team has already helped countless men and women in and around Atlanta achieve their desired cosmetic look with the help of double chin removal. If you are concerned with the appearance of fat under your chin and would prefer to avoid surgery, Kybella® may be right for you. The best way to determine your candidacy for double chin treatment is to schedule a consultation with our team.
During your consultation, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team will assess the treatment area and help determine if Kybella® is right for you based on your individual cosmetic goals. The ideal candidate for double chin treatment is in good general health, a nonsmoker, and has realistic expectations when it comes to the expected results of their procedure. Additionally, candidates have good quality skin that can bounce back to its original position once the unwanted fat is removed.
What Can I Expect During The Kybella® Procedure?
At Astra Plastic Surgery, Kybella® is performed by our certified aesthetician. Although every patient’s needs are different, the majority of our patients require 2 to 4 Kybella® injections spaced several weeks apart, in order to achieve their desired results.
Although procedure time varies depending on the individual anatomy of the patient and their goals, Kybella® usually takes 10 to 15 minutes to administer. Our professional injector will mark the injection sites to ensure precision. The injections themselves are relatively painless, however, topical numbing agents or cold compresses are available to ease discomfort. After the injections are administered, patients can return home.
What Can I Expect After Kybella® In Atlanta?
The beauty of Kybella® is that it does not require substantial recovery time. However, you may develop some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin; this is normal and will likely subside within the days following the procedure. However, as a result of these side effects, many patients find it convenient to take two days off from work or have the procedure just prior to the weekend.
Before sending you home, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team will provide detailed aftercare instructions. It is important that patients follow these instructions carefully to minimize their recovery time and maximize their results.
