Kybella® in McAllen, TX
Dr. Carlos Ayala is double board certified in otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery and offers Kybella® for men and women in McAllen, the Rio Grande Valley, Mission, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Kybella®?
The excess fat that develops under your chin and jawline is referred to as “submental fat.” This may not necessarily be an indication that you are overweight as submental fat is most likely linked to genetics. Traditionally excess fat in the area was removed via liposuction, but now you have a minimally-invasive option thanks to Kybella®. It is the first injectable product that is formulated to naturally destroy fat cells that cause a double chin.
What Are the Benefits of Kybella®?
- No surgery, incisions or scarring
- Gradually reduces fat under the chin and along the jawline
- Results in about 16 weeks
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
The best candidates for our Kybella® treatments are men and women who are near their ideal weight for at least one year. Please discuss your medical history with Dr. Ayala to ensure that Kybella® is the right option for you.
What is the Procedure for Kybella®?
Kybella® works best when it is administered in smaller doses across the entirety of the submental fat. This ensures that the fat reduces in a consistent and natural pattern. You will need a series of injections at a schedule determined by Dr. Ayala.
What is Recovery Like After Kybella®?
Pinpoint bleeding, swelling, tenderness, and minor bruising may develop around each injection site. This is related to the insertion of the needle into the skin rather than the Kybella® product. Symptoms typically last only one to two days. Fat reduction may take up to 16 weeks to achieve the optimal results that you desire.
