The Choe Center Is One of the First to Introduce Kybella™ Treatment In The Virginia Beach Area.

Dr. Kyle S. Choe, M.D., F.A.C.S. is now offering Kybella™ treatments to his patients. The Choe Center is one of the first centers in the Virginia Beach, Virginia area to offer this treatment. Kybella™ is a treatment that is designed to remove a double chin. It is a FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment. Kybella™ is made up of deoxycholic acid. This is a chemical that is naturally produced by the body. It helps absorb fat.

When the Kybella™ is injected into the submental chin, it will destroy the fat cells. The fat cells will then be absorbed by the body. It is important to note that once fat cells are destroyed, they will not return. That is why the results of Kybella™ can potentially last for several years.

Kybella™ as approved by the Food and Drug Administration in April 2015. There have been over 20 clinical studies done to prove that this treatment is both safe and effective. A pilot study showed that 79 percent of patients who received Kybella™ were satisfied with the results.

In the past, liposuction was the only option for dealing with a double chin. Liposuction is invasive, which is why more patients are opting to choose Kybella™. Kybella™ is the first FDA-approved non-surgical treatment for submental fullness.

One session of Kybella™ typically takes about 20 minutes to complete. General anesthesia is not required for this treatment. Patients will typically notice the results over the course of two to four weeks. Most patients will only need to get two to four treatments. Because this is a non-surgical treatment, little to no downtime is required.

Furthermore, side effects of this procedure are minimal. Redness, minor pain and bruising are some of the most commonly reported side effects. They typically subside quickly.

Double chin is a problem that affects many men and women. Aging, weight gain and genetics can cause a double chin to develop. This is an embarrassing problem that can cause a person to look much older than he or she is. Kybella™ can improve a person's appearance and self-esteem. It can also take years off of your appearance.
