Kybella lone tree co | emmett plastic surgeryDo you have a little bit too much skin or fat in your chin area? Kybella can help. Kybella is a popular injection treatment used to reduce fat beneath the chin. This additional fat is known as “double chin” or submental fat. This non-surgical fat reduction method can help you look years younger and improve your confidence.

Deciding if you’re a good candidate for Kybella

Most people can have Kybella injectables if they are in general good health. During your Kybella consultation, the doctor will determine if Kybella is right for you. If you have one or more of the following, Kybella may not be the best option for your cosmetic goals: you are using blood thinners, breastfeeding, are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant, plan to have facial surgery, have had neck or facial cosmetic treatments, or you have bleeding problems.

Kybella Side Effects

As with any cosmetic procedure (invasive and non-invasive), there are always side effects and risks. With Kybella, the most commonly reported side effects include hardness in the treatment area, redness, pain, bruising, swelling, or redness.

How Kybella Works

During your Kybella treatment session, you will be given injections under your chin. The amount of Kybella injections you get is based on your goals for the treatment. Injections can only be given by a certified professional who has received appropriate training to administer the treatment. The session will take about 20 minutes to complete. Afterward, you will likely experience slight bruising, swelling, and redness. If you begin to have difficulty swallowing or have an uneven smile, contact Emmett Plastic Surgery.
