Reduction of Submental Fat with Kybella Treatment from Kythera
The submental area is aesthetically important and makes an impact on the overall facial balance and harmony. A sub-optimal chin profile that may occur due to submental fat can make the lower face and neck appear older and unsightly. In some cases, the large amount of submental fat may be present along with other aging signs such as sagging skin and lipoatrophy of the lower face. These conditions can result in an unsatisfactory submental profile.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by eminent plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides state of the art treatments for submental fat reduction. Liposuction is a key procedure that may be applied in specific ways to achieve an enhanced submental profile.
Patients seeking non-surgical treatments for submental fat reduction may choose innovative techniques such as Ultherapy or Infini technology. M-Body provides these procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and surrounding communities.
Kybella or ATX-101 from Kythera
Kythera is an innovative developer of aesthetic non-surgical treatments, which has introduced a cutting edge procedure called Kybella, which is also known as ATX-101. The treatment is designed to improve the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat.
Kybella has recently received approval from the FDA, which is a breakthrough achievement for this technique. Kybella has now become the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment for the reduction of submental fullness. Submental fat deposits can adversely impact the overall facial appearance and make a person look older or heavier.
According to Keith Leonard, President and CEO of Kythera, Kybella offers a clinically proven solution that is customized to the patient’s needs and their treatment goals for an improved chin profile. Patient satisfaction is typically higher with this innovative and effective non-invasive treatment.
M-Body receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and nearby locations for various surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures, including liposuction, Ulthera, Infini and other cutting edge fat reduction techniques.
Kybella is administered via injections directly into the targeted fat deposit area under the chin. The treatment is tailored to the aesthetic goals of the patient. A single in-office treatment session would typically last for about 15 to 20 minutes. Many patients report visible results within two to four treatments, while up to six treatments in total may be administered.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) President, Dr. Michael C. Edwards, Kybella is a true innovation in the aesthetic industry with promising potential. Dr. Edwards stresses the importance of choosing a properly trained and qualified plastic surgeon to receive this injectable treatment.
Kybella treatment has been clinically tested globally, and involved more than 20 clinical studies with over 2,600 patients worldwide. Patients treated with Kybella reported an improvement in the amount of fat in the area below the chin, and also reported improvement in the emotional impact of submental fat.
