Cutting Edge Kybella in Voorhees and Sewell, NJ

Until now small pockets of excess fat under the chin was a very difficult issue to treat. Liposuction provided the best results for removing that fat but with the procedure came risks of a surgical procedure as well as downtime and recovery. Then came Kybella! Kybella is a non-surgical procedure that helps eliminate the fat that collects under the chin, which can assist in giving you a stronger profile and renewed confidence. So many of us find that no amount of exercise or dieting can eliminate that stubborn fat under the chin. Kybella may very well be the solution to that struggle. Dr. Franckle, a decorated and enthusiastic cosmetic surgeon, and his experienced staff are ready to meet with new patients, discuss options, and get started on restoring natural beauty.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injection to help combat submental fullness, know colloquially as “double chin.” The main factor used to eradicate fat is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that naturally occurs in the body. This molecule is instrumental in aiding in the breakdown of fatty cells. Once destroyed, these cells are no longer capable of absorbing and storing fat, meaning that once the timeline of injections is complete, the patient will be set for life.

How Kybella Works

Each Kybella session takes between 15 to 20 minutes, focusing on small injections in the problem area. The number of injections will depend on a conversation with Dr. Franckle and the ultimate desires of the patient. However, no one receives more than six injection appointments. Since Kybella doesn’t involve surgery, it can be down with little interruption to the patient’s daily routine, and it comes with minimalized risks. It also leaves no scars that need to be covered up.

What to Expect

The patient’s profile will take shape after each additional session. With fat cells destroyed, the patient should notice improvements soon after beginning the regimen and continuing throughout the period of injections. As the chin becomes lean, the patient’s naturally smooth neck will reveal itself and the rest of the face will appear more slender too. The natural contours of the face will reemerge without the distraction of the fat pouch attached. The staff can direct the patient on how to best recover from the procedure, which may result in some jaw soreness, swelling, and numbness.

Is Kybella Right for You?

Fat collecting under the chin can occur due to age, genetics, poor diet, or all of the above. A meeting with Dr. Franckle and an outline of the patient’s goals set the parameters of the overall number of injections and sessions. A number of other factors can come into play, such as the size fat deposits, the overall health of the patient, and their medical history. A medical examination beforehand helps determine the health risks involved for the patient, as Kybella can have side effects such as trouble swallowing and nerve damage.
