Getting rid of double chin
This blog is a followup to the blog in August that introduced Kybella as a new treatment for getting rid of the double chin. The treatment was so new that we had no before and after pictures to share, mainly because it can take a couple of months before you can see results. Now that some time has passed I am happy to report that this treatment is a winner, patients are very pleased with their results.
Patient #1 had 1.5 vials of Kybella injected under her chin. She had some swelling that lasted about two weeks. She saw the most improvement after two months She was pleased with her result after one treatment and elected to have no more treatments.
Patient #2 had a total of three treatments and was extremely pleased with her results. She had two vials each treatment and swelling lasted about one week. She did not have as much swelling after the second and third treatment which is a common observation. We have noticed that all of our patients get a hardness or firmness under the chin that can be felt but not seen and goes away over time.
Patient #3 had a total of two treatments, six weeks apart, two vials per treatment. We have decided to wait an extra four weeks before deciding on a third treatment for Patient #3 since patients continue to improve over time.
