Kybella® in Nashville, TN
Do you want to reduce the appearance of your double chin without undergoing an invasive surgery followed by healing and recovery? Mayo Clinic-trained, board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S., uses Kybella® to lessen the amount fat deposited under the chin as an alternative to neck lift surgery on people in Nashville and Franklin, TN, and the surrounding areas.
What is Kybella?
Kybella® is the first injectable FDA-approved to reduce the fat deposits that collect under the chin. It is an alternative to a neck lift surgery and contains deoxycholic acid, a natural acid found in the human body that is responsible for helping the body digest fat in the foods eaten. Once injected, Kybella® immediately begins to dissolve fat cells.
The Benefits of Kybella®
People choose Kybella® treatments as an alternative to invasive neck lift surgeries because it offers the following benefits:
- FDA-approved for reducing the appearance of a double chin
- No recovery or downtime
- Offers permanent results
- Immediate results that improve over time
How Does Kybella® Work?
Using an ultra-thin needle, Kybella® is injected into the targeted area under the chin and along the jowls. The injectable solution contains deoxycholic acid that works to dissolve the fat and create a more contoured chin. Deoxycholic acid is a substance found in the body that helps process the fat in food. Several injections may be needed to achieve the desired look around the upper neck. The treatment is virtually painless, but a numbing cream may be applied if necessary. Treatments typically take about one hour from start to finish with the actual injections taking only about 30 minutes. Most people require between two and six treatments spread out about four weeks apart.
After Kybella® Treatments
With Kybella® treatments, there is no recovery or downtime. One of the biggest advantages is that the results are permanent. The results are immediate but get better over the following few weeks.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost?
The cost of Kybella® injections vary with each patient and are based on the extent of the targeted area, the number of treatments needed and whether other treatments are being performed at the same time. During a consultation, we can discuss the cost as well as payment options. We accept cash, check, and major credit cards as well as offer financing through CareCredit®.
