Plastic Surgeon in Monmouth County Discusses Double Chin Reduction with KYBELLA
Dr. Christopher P. Godek of the Personal Enhancement Center highlights the benefits and treatment process for patients seeking to non-surgically eliminate stubborn submental fat via KYBELLA.
Toms River, NJ — One of the most common areas for men and women to experience an undesired accumulation of fat tissue is below the chin, states Toms River plastic surgeon Christopher P. Godek, MD. Frequently referred to as a “double chin,” he continues, this cosmetic concern often remains immune to even the healthiest of diets and most vigorous exercise routines. Traditionally, people interested in reducing diet- and exercise-resistant fat beneath the chin had only surgical options, he explains, but thanks to advancements made in the field of aesthetic medicine, patients now have a minimally invasive solution in the form of KYBELLA®.
FDA-approved for individuals who are at least 18 years of age, KYBELLA® is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment uniquely designed for the non-surgical elimination of stubborn fat cells underneath the chin and jawline. According to Dr. Godek, key benefits of this advanced technique include:
- No incisions and/or surgery
- A relatively short treatment
- Little to no discomfort
- Minimal to no recovery or downtime
- Long lasting results, potentially without the need for retreatment
During the procedure, Dr. Godek discloses that the KYBELLA® solution is injected into targeted areas of fat buildup using an ultra-fine needle. “Once administered,” he states, “excess fat cells in the treatment region are gradually broken down and destroyed, eventually leaving the body via natural processes.” The total number of injections will depend on the specific needs of the patient, though the New Jersey plastic surgeon says most individuals are finished with treatment within about 15 to 20 minutes. In addition, the majority of patients are able to resume normal daily activities within 24-48 hours, if not later the same day.
Ultimately, Dr. Godek notes that up to six KYBELLA® sessions may be required to achieve the desired outcome, though retreatment thereafter is usually not necessary. By continuing to eat a balanced diet and exercising on a regular basis, he adds that most women and men can expect their slimmer, more defined under-chin contour to last long into the future.
