Lasair Aesthetic Health in Denver, Colorado is on the cutting edge of technology and science when it comes to getting rid of chin fat.
Dr. Alexis Parker, MD says sometimes chin fat is genetic, sometimes its due to weight and it can also be related to aging where the jawline drops a little bit.
Dr. Parker also says so many people have been waiting for effective ways to get rid of that double chin. “There are many people who were born with chin fat and they can’t wait to get rid of it,” Dr. Parker said. Dr. Parker’s practice offers several ways to eliminate chin fat without surgery. One option is Kybella.
Kybella is an injectable product which has been cleared by the FDA to get rid of chin fat. Kybella is injected under the chin to get rid of unsightly fat.
Dr. Parker says anyone can be impacted by chin fat. “My son was born with genetic chin fat. He is not overweight. He was one of the first patients to use Kybella and he is so happy with the results,” Dr. Parker said. “He now has a nicely defined jawline and is so much more confident,” Dr. Parker added.
When patients come in, Dr. Parker numbs their skin, transfers dots under the chin for the injection points.
Then she calculates how much Kybella each patient will need to treat your excess fat. Kybella is then injected into the skin.
There is the possibility for some bruising. You might feel numb and tingling under your chin in the injection area. You might be a little sore but you should start to feel better by the next day. You might be a little swollen. “Most of your friends won’t know. You can wear a scarf or a turtleneck to cover it up because you will be going about your normal day,” Dr. Parker said.
Kybella is an FDA cleared drug so you want to make sure it being injected by a medical and experienced trained provider. Dr. Parker suggests you have a doctor, physicians assistant or even a nurse inject it. “You want this to be in the hands of an experienced medical provider. You want to be under medical care just in case something were to ever go wrong when you are getting any type of injectable,” Dr. Parker said.
