As you may know all-too-well, there is a fat pad underneath the chin called the submental fat pad. It tends to grow in almost all people as we age, even if we are not obese. Of course, increased body weight does lead to faster, more pronounced growth of the submental fat pad. A lot of people notice that they have a double chin, especially when people do video chatting or take a lot of selfies on the phone. This happens because, when you look down, it makes the chin look thicker and heavier.
You may or may not be familiar with something called the Grafton Submental Fat Scale. This is the scale that rates submental fat on a scale of 1-4 with 1 being almost no submental fat and 4 being a lot of submental fat. Thankfully, for people with more submental fat under the chin, there is an FDA-approved drug called Kybella that can help them.
Are You Interested in Kybella?
Comparable to Botox injections, Kybella reduces submental fat when it is injected into the tissue over the course of several months. Elite Health Center is proud to offer this treatment option for people who want to try Kybella in Fort Worth, TX. To get started, all you have to do is request an appointment online or over the phone. The next step will be to meet with a doctor who can explain everything to you and get started with your Kybella treatments.
Should I Try Kybella?
Kybella has been a very good option for our Fort Worth patients. Liposuction and similar treatments often lead to immense pain, tissue trauma, and swelling for the patient. Indeed, Kybella is very effective and much less dramatic than these other treatment options! Kybella works by destroying the fat cells in the submental fat pad. Once the Kybella has been injected and it kills the fat, the drug is quickly neutralized before it can damage any other tissue.
Most people who are interested in Kybella treatment are middle-aged and have a little fat under their chins or possibly at the lower eyelids. Elite Health Center physicians are trained in the Kybella procedure. We provide safe, fast, and effective treatment for submental fat under the chin. We provide the best option for Kybella in Fort Worth, TX.
How Does Kybella Treatment Work?
The Kybella procedure usually provides about one level of improvement in the Grafton scale. That’s a significant improvement if you think about it. Going from a 4 to a 3, a 3 to a 2, or a 2 to a 1 is a considerable improvement. That means 25% less submental fat than what you have now!
Unfortunately, Kybella has not been developed or approved for use in areas with large amounts of fat, such as in the belly. These areas will still need to be reduced from dieting, exercising, and other methods.
