In her early 20’s, this patient had heard the buzz about Kybella, and wanted to have her double chin area treated. In consultation with Dr. Wooten, it was decided that her case of submental fat was not very severe, and, as such, she only received one treatment, while most patient opt for 2-6 treatments. On the right, she is shown four months after her Kybella injections. In both images, her jaw is relaxed, and she is not’sucking it in.
*Please note, while all ‘before & after’s shown on our website are real Beleza patients, this does not imply that your result will look exactly like any of them. Outcomes are highly individual, and depend greatly on your procedure and your anatomy, as well as your post-operative compliance.
FDA-Approved for Your Neck Fat
Kybella is the first & only injectable approved by the FDA to both contour and improve the appearance of the neckline. Dr. Wooten performs the treatments in our safe & clean Wexford office, with no need for general anesthetic. These injections are a wonderful alternative for patients who want to eliminate the excess fat under the chin and along the jawline, but are put off by either the cost of surgery or fear of going under the knife.
Visibly Reduce Submental Fullness – Without Surgery
Not everyone is a candidate for Kybella. First, you will come in to our Wexford / Sewickley office to be evaluated by Dr. Wooten during a short in-office consultation. She will examine you and discuss what a realistic result will look like for you. Then, according to the outcome of your consultation, we will proceed. In a series of two to four treatments, Dr. Wooten will evenly inject Kybella beneath your chin according to your fat distribution. Each time, the injections will help to destroy fat cells, while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.
Cost of Kybella
As with all of our consultations, we would collect a $75 consultation fee at the time when we first schedule your appointment. This would then be applied to the procedure you choose to have. The actual total cost of your treatment will also depend on your consultation with Dr. Wooten. Depending on the amount of fat you have under your chin, Dr. Wooten will need anywhere between two to four treatments in order to achieve your best result.
Recovery Time After Kybella
The great thing about Kybella, as opposed to other fat reduction options, is that it is non-surgical. That means no anesthesia, practically no down-time, and an easily managed recovery. You will experience swelling shortly after each treatment which will dissipate within weeks. Our office will help you manage your swelling with homeopathic solutions and a compression garment, which you will be asked to sleep in for a while. Within three to four weeks, your final result will be visible. The result is long-lasting (as long as you maintain your weight). Much like we say to our liposuction patients, these sorts of treatments are not a weight-loss program, instead they are a way to contour and shape. Your own effort at fitness & a healthy lifestyle are as important to your best outcome as Dr. Wooten’s technique is.
