Double Chin Fat melting Injection

Fat Dissolving Injections
Have recently been approved in the US and is called Kybella®.  This is a purified chemical that makes up most of the fluid that is stored in  and released from the gallbladder. It helps us dissolve the fat in our diet!  When injected into the fat in the form of tiny droplets in a precise pattern, it kills the fat it contacts.  The body then "gets rid " of the fat over the next few weeks. This will need to be repeated two to five times at least a month apart. Each  "dose" costs about $1200 (3-5 doses will cost $3600 to $6000).  Experiencing a bit of swelling after each set of injections is quite  common. 
Final results are pending on this patient and usually can be seen a month after the last injection set.
