Whether your double chin developed as a result of the aging process or it is a physical trait passed down genetically, the condition can be distressing as it does not typically respond to dieting and exercise. Until now, there were few minimally invasive options for slimming the upper neck, but Kybella has quickly changed the outlook for those struggling with stubborn submental fat.
What ingredients make Kybella so effective?
Kybella is made with deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring compound that metabolizes body fat. Over time, Kybella patients in Edmond can enjoy double chin reduction, a boost in confidence, and a smoother, tighter jawline.
How does Kybella work?
When injected, Kybella eradicates the stubborn fat cells that cause submental bulging. The body naturally metabolizes the fat and discards it as waste. The Kybella process may seem too good to be true, but rest assured, the treatment has been successful worldwide and is fully approved by the FDA. When performed by qualified, experienced providers such as those at Highwater Aesthetics in Oklahoma City, Kybella is a safe and effective solution for contouring the upper neck.

Who is a good candidate?
Patients who have acquired a double chin during the aging process, as well as younger clients who came by submental fullness as a hereditary trait, will be delighted to discover the remarkable benefits of Kybella injections. Our team at Highwater Aesthetics in Oklahoma City simply asks that patients be emotionally and physically healthy and that they have realistic expectations for their results based on a detailed consultation at our luxury offices.
Note that Kybella can help trim stubborn fat bulges in the upper neck, but it is not a solution for loose, sagging skin. Clients with bleeding disorders or problems swallowing may require a different approach. You can be confident that Dr. Amanda Satterwhite, our medical director, will personally oversee your treatment, ensuring a natural-looking, nuanced result that is perfectly tailored to your unique wishes and aesthetic objectives.
What can I expect after Kybella?
There is no downtime to speak of after Kybella injections. Mild swelling -- as well as bruising, tenderness, and temporary numbness -- is common after Kybella injections and can last 7-10 days. However, these minor side effects are not typically severe enough to stop patients from returning to work, school, or leisure activities directly after their Kybella sessions. The more Kybella treatments the patient undergoes, the less dramatic the swelling is.
