Making a good first impression is crucial to developing friendships, relationships, and even business deals. People often form an opinion of somebody based on their first looks alone. If you don’t look your best, it can affect how people view you and alter the course of your social interactions. This is the primary reason behind why people pay close attention to how they present themselves.
Who doesn’t desire to look fabulous after all? No matter what age you are, we all want to look and feel our absolute best. Thanks to the many advancements made in the field of cosmetic surgery, there are a great deal of options available to those who want to improve their look.
A pleasant face is always a delight to look at, but if it is hindered by the appearance of a double chin, you may start to feel insecure about your looks and lose your confidence. Fortunately, with the help of Dr. George Pope, your problems with a double chin can be solved for good.
Dr. Pope utilizes an injectable treatment known as Kybella to deal with the excess fat that accumulates under the chin, which leads to the formation of the dreaded double chin. In the skilled hands of a plastic surgeon such as Dr. Pope, Kybella is careful injected into the appropriate area to act on the excess fat.
Kybella is not something you can find over the counter. It requires a prescription from a qualified medical practitioner. It belongs to a family of drugs commonly called as Cytolytics and works by inducing forced disintegration of the fat cells.
Kybella is a Kythera Biopharmaceuticals drug that was approved by the FDA in 2015. Before this, the only treatment available for double chin was liposuction, which is an invasive procedure that requires downtime. The kybella treatment, on the other hand, is quick, effective, and does not require you to take time off from your normal daily activities.
Preparing for the Kybella Treatment
To begin the treatment process, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Pope. During your consultation, he will analyze your body as a whole to help determine the amount of correction needed to achieve your desired look. You will also need to provide him with your medical history, including any allergies you may have.
It is important for you to talk to your doctor about any cosmetic surgeries you have had in the past, medicines you are currently taking, and any pre-existing health conditions you may have.
Kybella is used for treating fairly moderate to excessive fat under the chin. You will need to have realistic expectations about the results provided. After the treatment, you may experience some minor swelling and numbness, but this is temporary and will subside quickly.
What to Expect During the Treatment
The time required for one session of Kybella is typically around twenty minutes. It is administered in terms of multiple small injections. Your doctor will begin the treatment by marking out a grid of dots, focussing on the submental fat, and then Kybella is injected as needed. A mild stinging sensation is to be expected.
