Enjoy the Chin and Neckline You Have Always Wanted Without Surgery
KYBELLA® is a non-surgical, non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that can minimize or eliminate a double chin. This new, amazing injectable product helps better define the appearance of your jawline for a slimmer, younger look. It may also improve your self-esteem and give you more confidence in your appearance.
The KYBELLA® treatment is a series of injections that eliminates the fat areas under your chin.
How Does the Procedure Work?
KYBELLA® dissolves fat. There is no surgery involved, no incisions, and no stitches. It is not a temporary procedure that needs to be repeated; once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good. This makes KYBELLA® a great remedy for a double chin or early jowls.
When Raleigh and Durham patients come in for KYBELLA® treatments, they will receive multiple targeted injections at each appointment. For the best results, Dr. Zenn recommends an average of three to four treatment sessions, each spaced at least one month apart. The treatment is an hour long, and many patients return to work the same day. In general, patients notice improved tightness and contouring of the neck with each successive treatment. Because the change happens gradually, before and after photos are a great way to see the differences KYBELLA® can make. It is unreasonable to expect that a single treatment will deliver a beautiful final result.
Is KYBELLA® a Good Choice for Me?
When patients in the Raleigh and Durham area have consolidated fat deposits with fullness under the chin, they may be a good candidate for KYBELLA®. While this treatment doesn’t address sagging or loose skin by itself, it does help skin tighten when there is underlying fat in the same area. Dr. Zenn will examine your neck before the procedure to make sure that KYBELLA® is the right choice to improve your profile and neck contour.
Your Consultation for KYBELLA® Treatment
When you come in for your consultation, you will receive a treatment recommendation, including the number of treatments needed to best achieve your desired appearance and profile. Dr. Zenn will explain what to expect in the days following treatment (mild bruising or swelling) and will answer all of your plastic surgery related questions. Dr. Zenn has found that some Raleigh and Durham patients who schedule a consultation for facelift or neck lift surgery are often better candidates for KYBELLA® treatments. In other patients, there is just too much extra skin for KYBELLA® treatments to deliver optimal results. In those cases, surgery may be a better option. Because Dr. Zenn is an expert in facial anatomy and has years of experience using injectable products and performing state-of-the-art facial surgery, he is uniquely qualified to help you consider ALL options before choosing a treatment plan. Our patients often combine their KYBELLA® treatment with other injectables such as BOTOX® or fillers. We want you to understand your options, be comfortable with your choice of treatment and be confident in your choice of plastic surgeon.
