Do you avoid group or individual photos because of your double chin? Do you feel like headshots make you look heavier than you really are? Many men and women who have excess fat underneath the jaw, known as “submental fullness,” are self-conscious about the appearance of their double chin. In the past, the only way to address excess fat in this area was with plastic surgery. Fortunately, men and women in the area of Bellevue, WA have another option available to them: Kybella injections.
What is Kybella?
Dr. Fredric Stern of The Stern Center for Aesthetic Surgery describes Kybella as the first and only FDA-approved injectable available on the market today for the treatment of submental fullness. Kybella is injected directly into the chin area to help the body remove fat cells from the area through the lymphatic system. This allows patients to reduce fat in the treatment area while avoiding the need for plastic surgery.
What are the benefits of Kybella?
Kybella has several advantages which make it a great choice for our patients. Kybella is:
- Approved by the FDA for the treatment of a double chin
- Safe and effective at reducing fat cells in the chin area
- Great for patients considering a non-invasive alternative to surgery
- Perfect at providing gradual, natural-looking reduction of submental fullness
- An affordable option for men and women in the Bellevue, WA area
Who is a candidate for Kybella injections?
To determine candidacy, Dr. Fredric Stern encourages new and current patients to schedule an appointment at the practice for an initial consultation visit and evaluation. Patients need to provide a full health history and medical information to decide if they are a good fit for Kybella. Patients also need to have a realistic expectation as to what can be achieved with Kybella injections. Our team works with individuals to help them decide if this treatment would benefit them and help them reach their goals.
