FACIAL FAT REMOVAL

Kybella Atlanta, GA

Kybella Atlanta, GA, MetroDerm, PC

Kybella is an injectable which addresses the double-chin problem. The presence of excess fat under the chin area creates an out-of-shape, lethargic look, that can detract from an otherwise pleasing appearance even for people who are generally in good physical condition. A double chin usually comes about because of several factors, such as genetics, weight gain, and the aging process. A strict exercise regimen and a proper diet can’t always change the appearance of excess fatty tissue in this area, but Kybella can.

Kybella facial fat removal is an injectable treatment more comparable to other injectables, such as Botox and Juvéderm. Unlike other double chin treatments, no surgery is required. Some swelling and tenderness after treatment is expected, though it usually resolves within a few days. There may also be temporary numbness at the injection site, which resolves. The use of ice and painkillers reduces these mild effects.

Because some medications increase the likelihood of bruising, patients should stop taking the medications listed below for four to seven days prior to injections.

  • Motrin, Advil, Ibuprofen, Naprosyn (or same class of anti-inflammatory medications)
  • Aspirin
  • Fish oils
  • Vitamin E
  • Glucosamine
  • Ginko Biloba
  • Coumadin or Lovenox

Though you are more likely to bruise if you are on Coumadin or Lovenox, DO NOT stop taking these medications without your primary doctor’s approval.

About the Procedure

Before the procedure begins, you will be administered a numbing agent around the area being treated to ensure comfort. Using a special grid, boundaries for the injections will be carefully drawn on your skin. The temporary grid marked on your chin and neck will be used as a guide as you receive 14 to 50 injections, depending on your particular needs. The procedure is simple and straightforward, taking roughly 20 minutes to complete. Then you’re on your way.

Most patients need multiple injections spaced at weekly intervals in order to achieve maximum results. Most patients see noticeable results after two to three treatments. The number of treatments required depend on the amount of fat being eradicated. Once your aesthetic goal has been reached, there is no need for further treatment. When Kybella kills those fat cells, they are gone for good.

Kybella does not require any recovery time or downtime; most patients can return to their normal activities immediately. As with any injection, there is a risk of bruising and swelling at the injection site and some patients experience temporary redness and/or swelling. This usually disappears within a couple days, but can last up to a week.

Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary.

“Dr. McClure has no peer in his field. Apart from his incredible skill as a surgeon, he is also wise and compassionate, too. He knows when it’s the right thing to do nothing. I would not be alive today were it not for his treatment of my melanoma years ago. My wife and I trust him more than any other doctor whom we have ever known.”

Robert H.
“Dr. Neckman came highly recommended by my wife, and I was a little nervous on my first visit. She made me feel very comfortable and almost like a sister was looking out for her brother. She explained everything very well and took care of me with speed and compassion. Couldn’t recommend a dermatologist more.”
Tony M.
“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Garvey for a little more than six months. She has provided me relief from a serious varicose vein issue. I couldn’t be happier or more impressed with her knowledge, skill, and bedside manner. She has my highest recommendation. Her nurse, Eulene, and office manager, Chris, are also wonderful. Thanks to Dr. Garvey and team!”
Al G.

“Dr. Papadopoulos did a wonderful job on my recent surgical procedure on my arm. He made me feel at ease and explained everything to me in terms that I could understand. He was precise and succinct during the surgery, and my recovery could not have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Dr. Papadopoulos for any and all skin cancer surgery.”

Martha R.
“Dr. Berghoff has been my doctor for years and has identified and repaired significant skin issues on several occasions that could have resulted in serious health issues. I always leave his office feeling like I know what my skin health is!”
John P.

“I’ve been Dr. Kim’s patient for over 10 years and she is amazing! I recommend her to everyone and am grateful for the care and compassion she has shown me. Unfortunately, because of my skin, I see her a lot, but she makes visits and procedures as stress free as possible.”

Tara F.

“Dr. Pearl and her staff are amazing. I can’t speak highly enough about them all.”
