Frequently Asked Questions about Kybella in Milwaukee, WI
Because excess fat underneath the chin primarily accumulates due to genetic factors, diet and exercise may have a limited effect. As such, one of the primary ways to successfully eliminate unwanted fat in this area has been through liposuction.
However, that all changed when Kybella arrived on the market. When the medicine is injected into the fat underneath your chin, the active component – deoxycholic acid – breaks up the fat and dissolves the fat cell membrane. From there, your body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells from your body, reducing the excess volume and restoring your slim and contoured facial appearance.
To begin, we will administer a topical anesthetic to manage any discomfort you may experience and ensure your procedure is as pleasant as possible.
From there, we will lay a specialized grid over your skin to mark the treatment area, before making a series of precise injections directly into the fat. A simple procedure, it will take approximately twenty minutes to complete, and you will be able to resume your normal daily routine immediately. In general, most of our patients require two to three treatments to see visible results, with the precise number of sessions depending on how much fat needs to be removed.
Immediately after your injections, you may experience some bruising, swelling, redness and discomfort in the area. This is completely normal and will subside gradually within several days. In the meantime, you may take an over-the-counter pain reliever to help manage any potential discomfort.
The target area is first cleansed and then you will be asked to frown, smile, or look surprised. These expressions will cause you to activate the muscles to be injected. The treatment involves multiple injections usually 5 to 20.
In general, Kybella is an ideal way to reduce unwanted fat underneath the chin for anyone who is over 18 years old. However, there are some exceptions. If you are pregnant or nursing, have an active infection in the treatment area, have a history of trouble swallowing or are taking blood thinners, you will not be eligible for this procedure.
