finally look as great as you feel
You work hard. You eat right. You’ve tried everything but just can’t get rid of that extra fat under your chin. The dreaded “double chin” is a common trouble spot, and some people turn to surgery to conquer it. But what if you could reduce or eliminate your double chin without the expense and pain of liposuction or surgery? The good news is that you can with Kybella®. The Ultimate Aesthetics team at Chuback Medical Group provides non-surgical cosmetic procedures like Kybella® in Bergen County and the Tri-State Area. Kybella® is a breakthrough prescription medicine used to counteract the double chin. If you’re ready to finally look as great as you feel, we can help!
Kybella® works by targeting and breaking down fat cells
Kybella® is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid (also known as “cholanoic acid”) that can be injected to improve the profile and appearance of fat below the chin.
Deoxycholic acid is one of the chemicals your liver naturally produces to process the food you eat. In studies and clinical trials, Kybella® injections have been shown to yield substantial, positive results in treatments of moderate to severe cases of a double chin. Kybella® works by targeting and breaking down fat cells. Through that process, this FDA-approved treatment allows your body to absorb those cells and eliminate them—the results: a noticeable reduction in the fat volume under the chin.
create a fully customized treatment plan that’s right for you
During your consultation at Chuback Medical Group, your medical specialist will cover your complete medical history as well as listen attentively to your goals. Together, you will work with them to create a fully customized treatment plan that’s right for you.
Good candidates for Kybella® treatments are adults who are generally in good health overall but still have moderate to severe fat deposits beneath the chin. Their skin is also in good condition, as the tone and resilience of the skin contribute greatly to the final appearance of the process. If you have had or are planning to have facial surgery, Kybella® treatments may not be a good option for you. Also, if you are pregnant or nursing, experience difficulty swallowing, or have an active infection like acne in the area under your chin, our highly-trained technicians may recommend against Kybella® treatments at this time. We always recommend that you consult your primary care provider before undergoing any elective or cosmetic procedure.
Some people turn to liposuction or surgical removal to improve the appearance of their double chins. While effective, these processes can be expensive.
In addition, these invasive procedures can leave patients with significant pain and recovery time.With Kybella® — the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for double chin — the entire procedure can usually be complished in less than 30 minutes, and the resulting discomfort is typically only minimal. Our Ultimate Aesthetics team performs all of our Kybella® treatments in the comfort and safety of our state-of-the-art clinic conveniently located in Paramus, New Jersey. As a quick, outpatient procedure, you can expect to be home and back to your normal routine right away.
The process used to administer Kybella® is simple and straightforward. Your procedure will begin with your specialist carefully marking a grid pattern under your chin that serves as a guide for the injections, ensuring the effects of the treatment are evenly distributed. A local anesthetic is then injected to numb the area to be treated.
Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the medical technician will inject precise amounts of Kybella® under the skin at the injection site. The process is repeated at each marked location. Most patients have at least two treatments with Kybella®, scheduled six to eight weeks apart. When you and your cosmetic professional design your personalized treatment plan, you will determine how many treatments are needed specifically for you and the best intervals that will allow you to achieve optimal results.
you can expect to enjoy a slimmer, shapelier chin profile and jawline
You can expect some slight redness and swelling after the anesthetic from your Kybella® treatment has worn off. The skin under your chin may appear plumper than before the procedure, but this is normal and will subside over time. Any tenderness or discomfort you experience should be mild and can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medicine. A cold compress can also be effective for treating both pain and swelling. It is very rare, but some patients may experience numbness or have trouble swallowing following Kybella® injections.
Throughout your recovery, your medical provider will be able to answer any questions or address any concerns that may arise. Fat dissolution is generally noticeable after any swelling has subsided, usually in six to eight weeks. After you’ve recovered from the final procedure of your treatment plan, you can expect to enjoy a slimmer, shapelier chin profile and jawline. Provided you don’t gain weight and maintain your regimen of healthy eating and regular exercise, you can expect your results to last for years to come.
