I am excited to announce that last night I attended a training course for a new treatment product that Allergan released at the beginning of this year, Kybella®! Kybella® is a formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring bile acid, that is FDA approved for eliminating fat cells in “double chins.”
At my office we have the additional advantage of offering Ultherapy®, which pairs nicely with Kybella® for the treatment of sagging necklines. Please email or call my office at 540-776-1600 for an appointment if you are interested in more information about this new and exciting treatment.
There will be many physicians in the near future who will be trained to do these injections and patients may be lured to offices that call themselves “Cosmetic Medicine Specialists.” Please remember, and tell your friends who are considering such services, that only a board certified plastic surgeon can give reliable information contrasting the effects and results of injections versus surgery.
At present, Kybella® is approved ONLY for that area but there is ongoing research that may allow its use elsewhere in the future.
