Are you bothered by fat under the chin? Do you feel that the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are? If so, Brandi Tynes, a nurse practitioner at the Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Center of South Central Mississippi, says that Kybella may be the solution. Kybella is the only FDA approved injectable treatment option for fat reduction in the chin area. Kybella works by destroying the fat cells in this are so they can no longer hold or accumulate fat. Then, the body just processes and eliminates these cells naturally. A topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure, and the area is iced after the procedure. The typical number of treatments is three depending on the fullness present in the area.  Most people who receive Kybella treatments are extremely satisfied.
