What is KYBELLA
Kybella is a specialized injectable treatment designed to remove fat around the chin. Instead of using fat removal procedures like liposuction, Dr. Steifler can expertly inject the treatment solution into the fat, and melt it away over time.
KYBELLA, the first and only non-surgical, non-invasive alternative to facial liposuction that been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treatment of unwanted fat below the chin. Submental fullness, also known as 'double chin", is a common concern among facial aesthetic oriented patients and can impact both men and women. Some possible causes are gentics, weight gain, and aging.
Even with diet and exercise, unwanted fullness beneath the chin may not go away, and can make a person appear older or heavier than they actually are. According to a 2015 survey by the American Society for Drmatologic Surgery (ASDS), more than two-thirds of asthetic-oriented consumers are bothered by submental fullness-nearly as a many as those bothered by lines around the eyes.
Kybella is administered by injection to the chin and neck as determined by the patient's cosmetic needs. Treatment takes place during a normal in-office after patients can resume their regular activites. Fat cleared from the treament area is processed through the body's natural metabolic pathways. Almost all patients in good health can safely undergo Kybella treatment.
