What is KYBELLA?
Just a bit of extra fat in the upper throat area may cause the presence of a "double chin" that can cause self-consciousness in both men and women. The additional pockets of fat under the chin (also known as the submental area) can be caused by genetics, aging, or weight fluctuations that lead to a weaker chin and jawline for an undefined profile. Winchester, VA double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Karen is pleased to offer a revolutionary way to get rid of neck fat at Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa. Safe and effective, KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical procedure created specifically for the upper neck fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA) that works like the body's natural DA to break down and absorb fat cells. Once it is injected beneath the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not return so you are able to enjoy your new, slimmer profile and clear jawline for years to come.

What Can I Expect from KYBELLA Treatments?
KYBELLA is done during an in-office appointment. Dr. Karen may apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to keep you comfortable and relaxed once your skin has been cleansed. This roughly 15-minute procedure includes a few small injections into the submental area. Depending on your desired goals, you may need a single treatment or you may need several spaced three weeks between each appointment at Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa. This is something Dr. Karen will discuss with you during your consultation. After your procedure, you can leave our office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal routine. You may experience temporary bruising, numbness, or swelling beneath your chin, although this shouldn't last longer than 2 – 3 days. Optimal results after this treatment leave your neck appearing sleeker and tighter, and your neckline will be more defined. While the fat cells that are eliminated do not regenerate, the remaining cells can become larger so you need to keep a steady weight after your KYBELLA injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming.
