Keep your Chin UP with Khloe Kardashian and Kybella
Tired of Double Chin and want to get rid of it? There is finally a solution with just a few injections!
What is Kybella and Why is it so HOT?
Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is an FDA approved injection for elimination of stubborn fat under the chin area. The fat is destroyed giving you an instant slimmer and younger look 🙂
Khloe Kardashian gained a new boost of self confidence after using Kybella. Her under chin was just not going away no matter how well she was eating or how much she was exercising. It simply was not enough and surgery was out of the question. That’s when Kybella came to the rescue. Now, Khloe looks simply stunning, she looks her self but much improved and that’s why she is sharing her story.
Why is Kybella so Hot?
The under chin area has been historically very difficult to treat and required invasive surgery like liposuction. While liposuction gave great results, it did require anesthesia, downtime with time off from work/school and left a small scar under the chin. What makes Kybella so hot is that it’s a quick in office procedure of about 15min long, fairly pain free and requires no anesthesia and leaves no scars!
It is also great for people with a very small amount of under chin fat that thy have been trying to unsuccessfully eliminate. Liposuction might be too much for that one small area, but Kybella is just perfect.
Kybella vs Liposuction?
The decision to have Kybella or Liposuction depends on a few factors:
Age, the amount of under chin fat, can one take time off from work, can one have anesthesia and finally the price. Sometimes the price of Kybella treatment will be the same as that of Liposuction, but what’s important is that the patient should choose what option will work the best for them. Surgery is not for everyone and many people would rather have a few injections than go under the knife.
How much does Kybella treatment cost?
Kybella treatment is priced per vial. The number of vials needed for the treatment is determined by Dr.Avaliani at the time of your consultation. On Average 1-3 Vials can be injected into the treatment area. The amount of treatments really depend on the amount of under chin fat. Some people might have phenomenal results after just 1 single vial treatment and these people usually have a small amount of under chin fat. Others might need 2-3 vials in a single treatment session and may need as many as 6 treatment sessions to achieve optimal results
How do I know if Kybella is right for me?
Dr.Avaliani will gladly discuss and evaluate you to determine which treatment is best for you.
