Baltimore double-chin patients now have a non-surgical option with Kybella! Jeffrey Schreiber, MD on 20 Nov 2015
Get rid of your double-chin without surgery!
Announcing the newest product at the Baltimore Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center…Kybella! This is the latest FDA approved non-surgical treatment for neck fat or the “double-chin.” Kybella is a medicine that is carefully injected into the fat underneath the chin and slowly dissolves the fat over several months. Treatments are done right in the office and involve no surgery, no scars, minimal discomfort, and no downtime! The neck area is anesthetized with lidocaine and then the Kybella is gently injected into the fat at several points underneath the chin. The procedure takes about 20 minutes and the most common side effect is swelling that resolves over the next 1-2 days. Studies have shown that up to 6 treatments may be needed for full correction, but most patients saw excellent results after 3 treatments.
A consultation is required before the Kybella treatment since not everyone is a candidate. If excess skin is present then a necklift might be the best procedure for you. Dr. Schreiber is currently offering a package deal for Kybella, so call (410) 902-9800 to schedule your appointment or you can request an appointment online.
