As anyone who has gone through the strenuous process of dieting and exercising understands, there are certain parts of the body where fat seems to melt off, and then there are certain parts of the body where fat holds on stubbornly. The body accumulates fat in areas like the love handles, the thighs and the region underneath the chin.
Even if you diet and exercise on a regular basis, you may still struggle with having excess fat under your chin. In fact, you can get down to your ideal body weight and the rest of your body can be lean and trim, but you can still have that collection of fat under your chin.
One of the reasons why fat under the chin is so frustrating is because it has the ability of making the rest of your body appear to be obese. Nothing can be more discouraging than going through all of the hard work of dieting and exercising only to have no one notice because you have fat underneath your chin.
If this is your case, you may be a good candidate for Kybella®. This is a unique treatment that has received FDA approval to remove fat from underneath the chin. It is injected into the area that will be treated and immediately begins to eliminate fat cells. Once these fat cells die, they are absorbed into the body and removed through the body’s natural waste removal processes.
Many people have seen that Kybella® is a good alternative to invasive procedures like liposuction. It does not have the same downtime, and it is a non-surgical procedure. With that being said, for most people, Kybella® is not a one-time-fix-all treatment. Most people will need to come in for multiple treatments that are scheduled a set amount of time apart.
It is important to understand that Kybella® is not designed as a weight loss treatment. Obese individuals should look into other treatment programs that are designed to help them get within their healthy BMI. Once they are at a healthy weight and they are still struggling with fat under the chin, then they may be a good candidate for this treatment.
As with all medical procedures, Kybella® is going to work best on individuals who are healthy. The healthier you are, the better your body will respond to any medical treatment.
Individuals who are happiest with their results are those who go into the procedure clearly understanding what it can do for them and what it cannot do. They are emotionally healthy, and they want Kybella® treatments not to impress others, but instead to improve the way they look and the way they feel about themselves.
