At Advanced Clinics in Oklahoma City, OK, we know that stubborn fat affects your confidence, not just your appearance. However, the only thing worse than stubborn fat is the visible kind, like the double chin. For that reason, we offer an effective solution called Kybella. This cosmetic injectable can finally eliminate that stubborn fat that causes the appearance of a double chin, and even better, you can enjoy permanent results.
Is Kybella a Permanent Fix?
Kybella is a permanent solution to a double chin, and it is designed to eliminate fat cells that cause submental fullness beneath the chin and in the neck area. The main ingredient in this injectable is called deoxycholic acid, and it is designed to permanently destroy fat cells in the area. The body then removes those fat cells, and you’ll be left with permanently reduced fat volume beneath your chin and in your neck.
You Are Responsible for Maintaining Your Results
It’s important to note that you are responsible for making sure your results are permanent once you undergo this treatment. Any remaining fat cells in the treatment area may expand if you gain weight. This treatment will destroy a significant number of fat cells beneath your chin and in your neck region, but it won’t eliminate everything.
Anything remaining fat cells can expand, which will affect your results. It’s important that you eat a healthy diet, exercise consistently, and live a healthy lifestyle to help ensure that you maintain a healthy weight and maintain permanent results.
Will Weight Gain Affect My Treatment?
Weight gain and increased fat volume are two different things. Weight gain can result from many different factors, including water retention or even putting on muscle mass. Not all weight gain equates to increased fat volume. However, if you do increase body fat, up to ten pounds beyond your healthy weight, it can affect the results of your treatment.
If you eat an unhealthy diet and don’t take the necessary steps to maintain your results and gain fat after the treatment, you will be at risk of sabotaging those results. Results can be permanent, but the choice is yours. However, know that maintaining your result won’t feel like a chore, nor will it be difficult. Patients love their results so much that it motivates them to do whatever it takes to maintain those results indefinitely.
How To Maintain a Healthy Weight Post-Treatment
To maintain your post-treatment results, you don’t have to embark on an unmaintainable fitness routine or follow a restrictive diet. The most manageable diet plan and workout routine is one that you can incorporate into your lifestyle. Eating a moderate diet of healthy foods will ensure that you stay within your goal weight and avoid affecting your results.
Find Ways To Burn Extra Calories
You don’t have to spend extra hours at the gym to maintain your results and avoid weight gain, but looking for opportunities to be active will help you stay healthy and maintain your healthy weight. Parking in the farthest parking spot, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, and going on walks will help you build more activity into your lifestyle.
Drink More Water
Increasing the amount of water you drink daily will help promote a healthy body weight and help you maintain your results. When it comes to weight management, water intake is underrated. Water will fill up your stomach, so if you feel hungry, you may just be thirsty and require additional fluids.
Eat Clean, Lean, and Green Foods
When you make clean, lean, and green foods the bulk of your diet, you can ensure that you are getting enough protein, greens, and low-calorie nutrient-dense foods. Eating this way will go a long way in helping you maintain your results and enjoy your sculpted, defined jawline for as long as possible.
What Exactly Is Kybella?
In layman’s terms cock, Kybella is the cosmetic injectable designed to eliminate a double chin. It is an injectable that contains deoxycholic acid, a synthetic version of a substance your body makes naturally to break down dietary fat. When used in this injectable, it destroys the fat cells beneath the chin, the jawline, and the neck region to permanently eliminate the double chin.
How Does It Work?
This treatment process begins with an initial consultation, during which we will confirm that this injectable is right for you. We will review your medical history, evaluate your chin, jawline, and neck and confirm that you are a good treatment candidate. Then, we will design your treatment plan so that we can schedule your injection appointment.
When you arrive at your injection appointment, we will guide you to one of our treatment rooms. Then your injector will apply a numbing solution to the planned treatment area to make sure that you feel comfortable throughout the treatment process. A series of quick, virtually painless injections will be made in strategic areas to target your specific problem areas. This process only takes a few minutes to complete, and then you will be free to go about your day.
Preparing for Your Treatment
After your consultation, we may provide you with a list of instructions to best prepare for the treatment process. We typically ask patients to stop taking blood thinners in the days leading up to their appointment, including both over-the-counter and prescription medications.
Additionally, it’s important that you protect your skin to avoid sunburn in the weeks leading up to your treatment. If you have skin irritation in the planned treatment area, be sure to call our office and let us know so that we can reschedule your appointment so that you can achieve the best results.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Some patients achieve results after just one treatment; others require a series of treatments. It depends on the amount of stubborn fat that you choose to target in the treatment area. Since every patient is different, we will create a personalized treatment plan that’s right for you. It will include the number of treatments you will need and how long you should wait between each appointment.
When Will I See Results?
You won’t notice immediate results after your treatment because it takes time for the ingredients in this injectable to destroy the fat cells beneath your chin. However, once it does, you’ll notice visible results. Your jawline, neck, and chin profile will take on a more contoured and defined appearance.
It typically takes three to four months to notice the most visible results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your specific area of concern and provide you with more details about when you can expect to see the most visible results.
Is There Any Downtime?
