The submental fat compartment is also known as double chin. Weight gain or aging can make this area look more apparent. Sometimes young adults will present with double chin because of genetic predisposition. Very often, similar to other stubborn fat deposits, loss of weight may not reduce this pocket of fat significantly. Several nonsurgical treatments are available to reduce the fat and tighten the skin.*
Kybella was recently approved by the FDA for use in the submental area. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. Once it is injected in the submental region it will melt the fat cells in a safe and effective way. This substance is similar to a substance which can be found in our body and helps dissolve the fats. This product will break the cell membrane of the fat cells. Once the fat is released in the interstitial compartment it will be then metabolized by the body. The effect is permanent and will not cause an increase of fat deposition in any other region.*
Prior to the treatment you should schedule a consultation to see if you are a candidate for the procedure.
On the day of your treatment, Dr.Tchelebi will administer a local anesthetic and then map the area to be treated. Small aliquots are distributed at equal distances in the entire mapped area. This will insure that Kybella will be injected homogeneously over the entire targeted region, avoiding injections into unwanted structures, like nerves or vessels. The procedure has to be generally repeated a few times, depending on the amount of fat located in the submentum. The treatments are spaced one month apart. The most common complications are swelling, which can last up to 10 days. You may also experience bruising, and pain. In some cases, if the injection is done too superficially, ulcerations can occur.
Please avoid painkillers containing aspirin or ibuprofen, as well as nonsteroidal anti inflammatories. Not all patients are good candidates for this procedure. This remains however a good alternative for those who opt for minimally invasive procedures and can be the best option for many of you who would like a nicer, tighter neck without the bulge.For those who have loose skin or wrinkles it is important to add treatments like Venus Legacy, Venus Viva, Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport) and Fillers.
