This past Wednesday, August 12th, Dr. Kenneth Sanders of Knight and Sanders Plastic Surgery introduced the revolutionary product KybellaTM to North Louisiana and performed the areas first KybellaTM treatments at his office in Shreveport, LA. KybellaTM, an FDA-approved injectable, works by permanently breaking down the fat cells in your chin and neck. Previously, patients had to undergo liposuction, an invasive surgical procedure, to eliminate their unwanted, “double-chin.” With KybellaTM, patients can now improve the appearance of their neckline during an in-office procedure, and fully recover in as little as 3-4 days. Currently, Dr. Sanders is the only doctor in North Louisiana offering this new, fast, and safe alternative to liposuction.
Dr. Sanders shared, “A double-chin is so common for many people because it can be caused genetically, through weight gain, or aging and it is a very difficult area of fat for patients to lose. Kybella is a great alternative to liposuction because it requires no surgery; the results are permanent, and patients experience a much faster recovery time. We are excited to be able to offer this to our patients who have struggled with this troublesome “double-chin” area for so long.”
Because of the high level of expertise required for a successful result, Kybella injections should not be administered by nurses. It is critical to place the injections in the correct plane to avoid complications.
Knight and Sanders is holding an open house, Wednesday, August 19th, from 5:30-7:30, to help inform interested patients about KybellaTM. At the open house, patients can enter to win one free KybellaTM treatment with Dr. Sanders!
