Many people struggle with this common issue, whether weight fluctuations, genetics, aging, or posture cause it. Unfortunately, once it’s there, it’s hard to get rid of it on your own. But don’t worry; we have a solution for you!

The History of Kybella® 

Kybella® is a prescription medicine authorized by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April 2015 for treating moderate to severe fat accumulation under the chin, also known as submental fat. Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in this area.

Kybella®: A Non-Surgical Solution to Your Double Chin 

The Kybella® treatment effectively reduces submental fat by using a minimally invasive technique. It utilizes deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body, to destroy fat cells, which are then eliminated through the body’s natural waste-removal process. Kybella® typically requires four to six appointments, spaced a few weeks apart, to achieve the desired results.

Effective Results with No Downtime 

Kybella® is an effective treatment option without the surgical risks, scarring, or other complications associated with surgical fat removal. You can expect to see significant improvements after treatment, and our staff will be happy to discuss timing and outcomes in more detail during your initial consultation.

Combining Treatments for Optimal Results 

While Kybella® is effective in melting chin fat, some individuals may need additional treatments if their skin lacks elasticity or fails to tighten naturally. In these cases, we can help you determine the best treatment options to combine with Kybella®. Some popular options include Ultherapy®, Profound® RF Microneedling, dermal fillers, or wrinkle relaxers. During your consultation, we’ll assess the health of your skin and provide information about all potentially helpful treatments to help you select the best options for your needs.

How Kybella Injections Can Dissolve Your Double Chin

You can improve your profile from any angle and be free from those annoying fat deposits under your chin by treating yourself to Kybella. Using Kybella injections, submental fat can be contoured away from your under-chin area by the skills of Donna Krummen, MD FACS, practicing in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Kybella Injections Are Designed to Dissipate a Double Chin

Approved by the FDA in 2015, Kybella is the first non-surgical, treatment designed to dissolve the double chin fat pocket that is exasperating for many men and women. Kybella is an alternative to liposuction or other invasive surgery. A synthetic version of deoxycholic acid injected into the target area of concern to destroy fat cells. This cytolytic medication breaks down subcutaneous fat by destroying the cell membrane in one’s digestive tract. Over a span of several weeks, the dissolved fat becomes cellular debris and is cleared through the lymphatic and circulatory systems, ultimately to be excreted as waste.

Candidates for Kybella Injections

It is very challenging to address double chin fat through contemporary weight loss and exercise regimens. This is because submental fat is very resistant to even the most stringent diet and exercise regimen.

The following factors will determine if you’re an ideal Kybella candidate:

  • You want a non-invasive procedure to reduce your double chin
  • You are close to your BMI and weight goals
  • You have a double chin that is diet/exercise resistant
  • You lead a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise regimen

Kybella is not a weight-loss tool. It is a very effective cosmetic procedure to lose your unwanted double chin fat and have a smoothly defined facial profile from every angle.

Melt Away Your Double Chin with Kybella Injections

Get rid of your bothersome double chin by scheduling a consultation with Donna Krummen, MD FACS, at her Cincinnati, Ohio practice, by calling 513-985-0850. Bolster your self-confidence by taking advantage of Kybella injections or other nonsurgical profile procedures Dr. Krummen offers, such as a facial peel.

Facelift Timing May Not be What You’d Expect

Facelift surgery is not new, nor is it uncommon. This procedure has long been sought by people “of a certain age.” That age has often been sometime after mid-life; sometime around 55 to 65 or even older. This timing is not wrong, per se. Dr. Krummen often consults with patients in this age group. However, since the early 2000s, the general approach to cosmetic aging has changed quite a bit. This shift began with the development of injectables.

Botox, the first injectable cosmetic to be introduced, gained traction relatively quickly. Shortly after people began softening wrinkles with Botox, they had the option of also adding dermal filler injections to their anti-aging regimen. These treatments have seemingly become the new norm. However, they have not eliminated the value of facelift surgery. This procedure has remained popular and beneficial despite innovations in aesthetic medicine. Younger patients are seeking facelifts more frequently today than in the past. Here, we discuss two reasons why.

Natural-Looking Improvements

A skilled plastic surgeon has techniques to successfully correct the signs of aging and achieve natural-looking results, so we’re not saying that a person who has a facelift later in life will look unnatural after their procedure. One reason that facelift surgery is popular among forty- and fifty-somethings is that the early correction of facial deflation can achieve subtler improvements. The younger patient looks refreshed but doesn’t look like they’ve had work done.

A Revived Professional Image

It is between the age of 45 and 55 when many people reach the peak of their professional careers. Conversely, this is also a time in life when some people are starting over in a whole new field. In either situation, the professional image leads the way. A person’s character, ethics, and motivation are interpreted through their appearance. The benefit of a facelift is not limited to looking younger. This procedure also boosts professional image to maintain that competitive edge that is needed for long-term success.

Age is a minor factor in deciding to have a facelift. The primary factors are the degree of aging that occurred and your cosmetic goals. To schedule your facelift consultation in our Cincinnati office, call (513) 985-0850.
