KYBELLA®in Northern Virginia
AVERAGE COST: $650 – $3,000
A KYBELLA® injection can reshape the neck without an operation to reduce a double chin.
KYBELLA® is approved by the Food & Drug Administration.
KYBELLA® Neck Liposuction is made with deoxycholic acid, a natural substance in the body that breaks down and absorbs fat.
KYBELLA® is the first and only nonsurgical neck liposuction treatment approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). When KYBELLA® is injected into the neck under the chin, the fat cells are eliminated. Dr. Timothy Mountcastle, a plastic surgeon in Northern Virginia, is trained in this new injectable and can eradicate a patient’s double chin without surgery and minimal recovery time.
Dr. Mountcastle tailors every patient’s KYBELLA® treatment plan to suit their needs. After assessing the patient’s chin, neck, and profile, Dr. Mountcastle will perform a series of injections. The patient will be able to leave immediately after the procedure and resume their normal activities.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Patients should expect to have temporary swelling, bruising, mild pain, redness, and numbness for up to 1 week after their treatment. Results will start to appear from 1 week to 1 month after their treatment. Patients may receive up to 6 treatments at least 1 month apart until their best results appear.
Once the KYBELLA® treatments have destroyed the fat cells in the submental area, they are permanently gone. However, patients should maintain a healthy, stable weight after the procedure to prevent weight gain in other areas.
KYBELLA® has been approved by the FDA, scientists have performed over 20 clinical studies, and over 1,600 patients have been treated with KYBELLA®. Patients should disclose their full medical history to Dr. Mountcastle during their consultation, including any current medications, herbs, and supplements. KYBELLA® is not approved for use in patients under 18 years old and should not be used outside the neck and chin area.
KYBELLA® neck liposuction and traditional neck liposuction are both effective and similarly priced, but KYBELLA® does not involve surgery, general anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery. Dr. Mountcastle will discuss both methods during the initial consultation and help the patient determine their best treatment plan.
