At the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay, we are committed to providing the most advanced treatment options available, and we are delighted to introduce KYBELLA™ as part of our comprehensive selection of non-surgical cosmetic enhancements! This minimally invasive injectable offers a revolutionary new way to address excess fatty tissue under the chin – an aesthetic concern commonly known as a “double chin.” Dr. Jeffrey Hunt, our experienced physician, and our registered nurses, Kristen Thornley, ARNP and Jamie Johnson, ARNP, will be performing this technique at our office.
Excess fat can accumulate as a result of many factors. For instance, some individuals have a genetic predisposition to store fat beneath the chin. Other people may not have the time or opportunity to exercise and eat right due to busy schedules or other difficulties. Certain medications and illnesses can also lead to area-specific weight gain. The fact is: patients of all ages and body types can experience this concern. In the past, surgical treatment was the only cosmetic option available. Today, KYBELLA™ makes it possible to melt away submental fat (fatty tissue under the chin) with minimal discomfort, little downtime, and long-lasting results.
KYBELLA™ can be performed in the comfort of our well-equipped office. Our experienced professionals will evaluate your areas of concern and discuss your cosmetic goals before developing a customized treatment plan. A series of injections will be administered to targeted regions of your chin. Afterwards, you may return home. We recommend you take a day or two off from work to rest after the procedure, or until you feel comfortable returning. Some swelling, tenderness, numbness, and bruising in the injection sites is normal; however, these effects should fade over the next few days. Gradually, your double chin should reduce in size, and you should enjoy natural-looking results and an improved facial contour.
