What is KYBELLA?
Even a little extra fat in the upper neck can make you feel like you have a "double chin." The additional pockets of fat below the chin (the submental area) can be caused by aging, weight fluctuations, or even just genetics that lead to a weaker chin and jawline for an undefined profile. Oklahoma City, OK plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan is proud to offer a revolutionary technique to eliminate neck fat at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is a new nonsurgical option for reducing submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid (DA) that acts like the body's natural DA to break down and absorb fat. Once it has been injected under the chin, you can see a visible reduction in the amount of fat, smoothing the area underneath of your chin. Once the fat is removed and with weight maintenance, you can enjoy a slimmer facial profile for years to come.
"I recently moved to Edmond about a year ago when I first saw Dr. Sawan for filler. I loved my first experience and still enjoy every appointment. Dr. Sawan is honest, trustworthy and so educated in all the products he uses. He explains and answers all concerns and questions and also helped me by correcting my previous filler work. I recommend him to anyone."- A.L. / Google / Aug 21, 2020

"Dr. Sawan is a miracle worker. Had eye surgery, upper and lower kids, and now look much better, and healthier. Not surgeries that look obvious that you had eye lift surgery. I asked him for a natural and healthy look. I’m “very” pleased, and his staff is wonderful. Highly recommend you see him before choosing anyone else."- J.T. / Office Visit / Sep 25, 2020
Can I Get KYBELLA Treatments?
You may be an ideal candidate for KYBELLA treatments if you have additional fat in your upper throat (submental) area, which causes a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection treats resistant sections of fat that can't be removed with common weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet don't seem to eliminate the fat in your upper neck, KYBELLA may be just what you need to get the slim facial appearance you're looking for. While KYBELLA can address small to moderate pockets of fat in the submental area, larger pockets of fat may be better suited for surgical liposuction. Call Dr. Kamal Sawan at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics to schedule your consultation today.
How Do KYBELLA Injections Work?
KYBELLA is completed in one of our treatment rooms in around 15 - 20 minutes. Dr. Sawan may apply a numbing gel to the treatment area, if requested, once the skin has been cleaned and prepared for treatment. The procedure comprises multiple small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may require a single treatment to get to their desired goal while others may want a few treatments spaced three weeks between each appointment. Dr. Sawan will work with you to determine how many appointments are needed to reach your goals. After your treatment(s), your neck should appear sleeker and tighter and your profile more defined.
What Can I Expect After My KYBELLA Treatment?
You can leave the office right after your KYBELLA treatment and get right back to your daily routine when you're ready. You might have some swelling, redness, bruising, or numbness at the injection site, but it shouldn't last more than a few days. If you experience facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, an uneven smile, or another unusual side effect, call Dr. Sawan as soon as you're able. Once the treatment is complete, the fat cells cannot regenerate; however, remaining cells can become larger so it's important to maintain your weight in order to prevent new fat pockets from forming. Following your treatment, you'll have a sleek, slimmed-down profile.
