Kybella Neck Lift
Are you interested in getting a neck lift without undergoing surgery? Dr. Joseph Russell is now offering the patented Kybella non-surgical neck lift to patients in the Charleston, SC area.
What Is a Kybella Non-Surgical Neck Lift?
Many people struggle with fat under the chin as well as a noticeable double chin. This can occur with age, but also with weight gain, weight loss, and simple genetics. This chin and neck fat can change the entire appearance of a person’s face, making them look older and making their entire face appear to droop. Removing these imperfections can create a more youthful and healthy appearance while making the face look tighter and more streamlined.
Until recently, neck lifts always involved invasive surgery and general anesthesia. The Kybella procedure offers a much-needed innovation, with the physical transformation of a neck lift without the knife. Kybella is an injectable substance that dissolves stubborn fat under the neck while tightening double chins. The result is a tighter and more youthful appearance without surgery.
This injection is the only non-invasive way of tightening the chin that has been approved by the FDA.
How Is a Kybella Neck Lift Performed?
This neck lift is innovative because it can be performed in our office without general anesthesia. First, Dr. Russell numbs the area. Second, the Kybella solution is injected directly into the unwanted fat, usually in around 15-30 small injections. This solution is made of deoxycholic acid, a natural substance made by the human body. One of the roles of deoxycholic acid is to break down fat deposits without damaging other tissues in the area. This molecule breaks down and metabolizes the unwanted fat cells, so they can be carried away and disposed of by the body.
The entire procedure takes around thirty minutes in most cases. Patients should begin to see results soon after the injections. The process is complete after four to eight weeks. The difference is subtle and gradual enough that most people in your life will not realize it has happened; they will simply notice that you have a trimmer, more youthful appearance in general.
The recovery from this non-surgical procedure is fast. The most common side effects are swelling or redness at the injection site. There are no hospital stays or recovery time necessary. The results are permanent. Some people opt to get other non-surgical procedures such as fillers or botulinum toxin injections at the same time for a completely non-invasive facelift.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Procedure?
This procedure is a great option for people between the ages of 18 to 50 years of age and has a facial appearance that is negatively affected by a double chin or a fat pad under the chin. It is important to know that this procedure will not tighten excessive loose skin or muscle, which usually starts to occur around age 50. It also cannot stop hair growth, discoloration, or other complaints common with this area of the face and neck. It is appropriate for men and women of all ethnicities and skin types.
