Kybella Can do What?
- Posted on: Oct 30 2017
It has been only a short time since Kybella became available in the United States, and what a time it has been! Since 2015, men and women of all ages have been turning to this injectable solution to reduce the appearance of submental fullness. A double-chin created by excess fat beneath the jawline can be problematic to such a degree that it creates self-consciousness, so having a remedy that does not involve surgery has been a significant advantage for many. But there’s more.
If you remember the original days of Botox, you may recall that this “wonder drug” was initially approved for the treatment of glabellar lines, those nasty frown lines that refuse to go away when the face is at rest. Since the onset of use, physicians have discovered numerous other ways to make the most of the muscle-relaxing qualities of Botox. Now, this injectable is used to reduce crow’s feet, smooth worry lines, and even lift the brows. Botox is also used as a method of managing TMJ disorder, migraines, and even urinary incontinence in women.
The point here is that most new products are developed for the particular aesthetic purpose and that those products eventually reveal much greater capabilities than were initially imagined. Just as we witnessed this with Botox, we are now seeing just how far Kybella can go in addressing concerns related to localized pockets of fat. As an expert injector of the Kybella product, Dr. Shridharani has developed some off-label techniques that have patients cheering.
Some of the common off-label (for now) treatment areas for Kybella include:
- Back (bra strap)
- Knees (inner knee and top of knee)
- Male chest
- Backs of the arms
- Lower buttocks (banana roll)
- Outer thighs (saddlebags)
- Inner thighs
- Upper abdomen
- Lower abdomen/mons pubis
At Luxurgery, this injectable treatment for excess fat is referred to as Surgery in a Syringe℠. We are proud to provide this extended service to patients who want to improve body contours without cosmetic surgery.
