Kybella™ in Worcester, MA

If you have a double chin that makes you appear older or heavier than you actually are, there is a new treatment that specifically corrects submental fullness, commonly referred to as a “double chin.” Located in Shrewsbury, Salisbury Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom, offers Kybella™ injections for residents of Worcester and nearby communities in Massachusetts.

What is Kybella™?

Kybella™ is an FDA-approved cosmetic dermal injection treatment for the condition known as a “double chin.”  Kybella™ diminishes the appearance of submental fullness, or the fatty deposits beneath the chin. Kybella™ is formulated to tighten and tone the chin and jaw line, restoring a firmer, more defined profile and younger-looking appearance.  Kybella™ is minimally invasive and requires no recovery period.

How does Kybella™ work?

Kybella™ is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction that safely destroys fat cells so your body can eliminate them naturally.  Kybella™ is respected as a superior treatment for improving facial definition due to its ability to destroy fat, which is then eliminated naturally.

Has Kybella™ been tested for safety and effectiveness?

Yes. Kybella™ has been tested rigorously in 20 clinical trials to evaluate its safety and effectiveness. These studies tracked over 1,600 Kybella™ patients to safely and evaluate their results over an extended period. Seventy-nine percent of patients tracked reported total satisfaction with their Kybella™ treatment. These patients reported that the treatment improved their self-esteem and appearance.  Kybella™ is approved by the FDA.

What Causes A Double Chin?

Submental fullness or the “double chin” is a very common problem that often contributes to embarrassment and diminished self-confidence. In fact, according to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, over 60 percent of Americans report lack of satisfaction with their double chin.  Luckily, Kybella™ is a safe and effective new treatment that eliminates submental fullness without surgery.

Although some people are born with a double chin, many people develop submental fullness as a side effect of aging, with the problem becoming more pronounced as they age. Excessive weight also sometimes contributes to the development of a double chin. The more fat in your body, the higher the likelihood that you will develop a double chin.  Genetic factors such as facial bone structure are also factors that contribute to the development of a double chin. When this trait is caused by hereditary factors, diet or exercise will not eliminate it.

Would I Make a Good Candidate for Kybella™ Injections?

Kybella™ is recommended for healthy adults who want to eliminate or diminish the appearance of a double chin, and for those who have lost excessive weight but are still bothered by submental fullness or a double chin. Because Kybella™ is a non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery, it is recommended for those who cannot undergo surgery or those who prefer a minimally invasive treatment that requires no recovery period.

How Should I Prepare for Kybella™?

Dr. Ekstrom will evaluate your medical history prior to your Kybella™ treatment. For those who have had prior cosmetic surgery on the face or chin, the treatment may be modified. You should also inform Dr. Ekstrom if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or experiencing difficulty swallowing.  Kybella™ injections may have to be postponed if you are currently suffering from an infection or other condition in the chin area. Kybella™ is not approved or recommended for use in any other area of body except the submental area.
