Kybella in Melbourne, FL
Liposuction and neck surgery used to be the only option for men and women with double chins. Now you can eliminate that stubborn fat with Kybella®, a minimally-invasive injectable treatment specifically designed for eliminating fat under the chin and jawline. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Mauricio J. Castellon, MD, offers Kybella® and other dermal fillers and injectables for men and women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
What is Kybella®?
Allergan, a leading manufacturer of today’s top cosmetic injectable treatments, has developed Kybella® to give men and women an alternative to surgery for excess fat under the chin and jawline. Commonly called a “double chin” or “triple chin,” this sign of aging is one of the most difficult to address on your own. Diet and exercise do little to nothing to remove the extra fat. Surgical options include liposuction and neck lifts, but many patients do not need this level of correction.
Benefits of Kybella®
Kybella® is formulated with deoxycholic acid, a substance that is found in the human digestive tract. The acid helps with digestion by destroying fat and allowing it to be naturally absorbed and eliminated by the body. The deoxycholic acid in Kybella® works in exactly the same way. Over time, you see the excess fat under your chin and jawline simply fade away, and all without surgery or extensive recovery.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Kybella®?
The FDA has approved Kybella® for use in adult men and women who have mild to moderate fat under the chin and jawline. Candidates for the procedure must also have adequate skin elasticity. Otherwise, the skin will hang loose in the neck area. If you are not a good candidate for Kybella®, Dr. Castellon may recommend liposuction or a neck lift to remove excess skin and fat.
How is Kybella® Unique Amongst Dermal Fillers and Injectables?
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved product on the market that treats double and triple chins. No other non-surgical products are effective in treating excess fat in the area.
What Should I Expect From Kybella® Treatments?
The condition that is commonly known as a “double chin” is clinically referred to as submental fullness. The excess fat may be caused by gaining weight, aging, and genetics. Your neck and jowl area are gradually improved as the fat cells are destroyed. Kybella® also stimulates collagen production to smooth out any fine lines and wrinkles in the area.
How Long Does It Take to See Results from Kybella®?
Dr. Castellon may recommend up to six-monthly treatments. More than half of our patients receive six treatments, but some only need two to four treatments. You will see visible improvement after about 12 weeks. The results can be permanent with proper diet and exercise to avoid developing new fat in the area.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost in Melbourne?
Like other dermal fillers and injectables, Kybella® is considered elective by your medical insurance. The cost is based on the amount of product that is used as well as the total number of treatments. We provide a detailed cost after your consultation appointment.
