Fat Reduction & Body Contouring

Treatment Options

Fat reduction can be accomplished in a variety of ways. Which procedure is best depends on a number of factors including the patient’s age, size, treatment location and the degree of skin laxity.  Some procedures required more downtime, which may be a factor in the patient’s decision. The consultation process is designed to help the patient decide which procedure is most suitable for them.

Kybella®

KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

Number of Treatments: 1 to 3 (one-month interval)
