Dr. Y. Anthony Nakamura, a board-certified plastic surgeon with 25+ years of experience, offers Kybella® to the residents of Arlington, Dallas Fort Worth, and the surrounding communities in Texas at Accent On You.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable that improves the appearance and profile of moderate to severe under-chin fat. Commonly referred to as “double chin,” Kybella® reduces the appearance of this extra fat with minimal downtime, discomfort and long-lasting results.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® is a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the body and breaks down fat. When Kybella® is injected under the chin, this deoxycholic acid breaks down and dissolves fat that causes double chin. This fat is then removed through the body’s lymphatic system. Kybella® offers long-lasting results since the fat cells are destroyed by the deoxycholic acid. Since the cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat.
Benefits of Kybella®
Kybella® offers the following benefits:
- Long-lasting results
- Minimally invasive
- Little to no downtime
- No incisions
- Short treatment sessions
- Minimal discomfort during treatments
- Enhanced jawline and neck area
Dr. Nakamura and his staff are wonderful. Everyone is very professional and the office setting is peaceful and welcoming.
Unlike surgery, Kybella® is minimally invasive, and treatments are short. Your face and neck will be thoroughly cleansed, and a topical anesthetic will be applied. The Kybella® solution will then be injected into the neck and jaw areas into multiple target areas. Treatments typically last about 20 to 30 minutes, and most patients experience no downtime. Some patients may experience minor swelling for three to five days after the treatment, depending on how many vials are in injected into the treatment area. Kybella® usually requires two to four treatment sessions.
