Portsmouth, NH, August 17, 2015 - Dr. Mark Ballentyne, Dr. Lawrence Gray and Dr. Heidi Harrington are now offering Kybella, a new non-invasive treatment to target submental fat, sometimes referred to as “double chin”. Until recently, surgery was the best option for anyone looking to achieve a sharper, more chiseled chin. Now, Kybella provides an alternative to liposuction.

The first injectable substance that the FDA has approved to treat submental fat, Kybella is designed to dissolve stubborn under-the-chin fat. Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults including men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics, and weight gain. Fat under the chin is often resistant to diet and exercise alone and can detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance leading to an older and heavier look.

Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance found in our bodies naturally, which aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected, it destroys fat cells under the chin, leaving the skin substantially tighter and the jaw more contoured. Once destroyed those cells cannot store or accumulate. Because Kybella is non-surgical, there is no recovery time and no downtime. More than 20 studies have been conducted with thousands of patients. Nearly 70% of study participants reported both physical and emotional improvement after treatment with Kybella.

Kybella treatments are customized by the doctor to achieve the patient’s specific aesthetic goals of an improved chin profile. Many patients see visible results in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Re-treatment is not expected and results last for up to 6 years. Treatments are about 20 minutes per session. Visit our website at www.atlanticplasticsurg.com to read more about Kybella.
