It is only normal for a person to be concerned about how they look. Really, people make split-second decisions about us by our appearance. And while this may not be the fairest of things, it is a harsh reality. The more attractive a person is and the more put together they appear, the better they are treated by others. There are a lot of factors that contribute to the way that other people view you. However, one of the primary factors that determines the way that other people view you is the appearance of your face.
Your face, much like a window display at a department store, is what other people look at when they are determining things about you, such as your personality, your level of success and your intelligence. For this reason, millions of people around the world collectively spend billions of dollars on procedures that are designed to improve the appearance of their face. The key is learning how to weigh the pros and cons of the different cosmetic procedures that are available and then determining which procedure is right for you.
For example, one of the major complaints that people have about their face is that they have a double chin. As they’ve gotten older, some fat has collected underneath their neck, and this is negatively affecting their appearance. In times past, the only cosmetic option that was available to remove this collection of fat underneath the chin was liposuction. Fortunately, Kybella® exists as a non-invasive way to remove submental fat. There are countless reasons why Kybella® beats liposuction for double chin removal.
During a liposuction procedure, a person is typically placed under general anesthesia. Incisions are made in the part of the face that is going to be treated, and then a thin cannula is used to manually break down and remove the built up fat. Once the procedure is completed, the incisions are closed and the patient is left to recover.
Many people have had a procedure like this performed, and many have been happy with the results. However, having a double chin removed using liposuction presents a lot of potential negative side effects. All surgeries are inherently fraught with risks and can have potential negative complications, including infections and uneven results. And even if the entire procedure went exactly as planned, after getting liposuction, a person will need to have multiple days of downtime in order to recover.
Kybella® is an injectable that has recently been approved by the FDA to remove the fat that causes a double chin. The process works by injecting an enzyme that the human body already produces to accelerate the destruction and removal of fat cells in the treated area.
There are a lot of reasons why Kybella® is considered to be advantageous as opposed to liposuction. First, the procedure is fast. It requires approximately 30 minutes to perform. After the procedure, the patient is free to walk out of our office and immediately go back to their everyday routine. There is no recovery time, and there is minimal risk for complications. With just three or four treatments, a patient sees noticeable results. The double chin disappears, and they are left with a face they can be proud to show off to the world.
