A Minimally Invasive Way to Eliminate Chin Fat

Are you constantly strategizing how to angle the camera in a way to show your neck and chin in the most flattering light? Do you try to hide behind scarves and turtlenecks? Do collared shirts feel too tight or constricting? It may be that you’re self-conscious about the way that your neck has aged over time. Or perhaps your chin has multiplied into chins, and you would like to turn back time to reclaim the chin of your youth. If this describes you, know that you’re not alone with this concern.

Over half of Americans worry about submental fullness (fat under the chin). Genetics, aging, and lifestyle habits all contribute to the appearance of a double chin, and the area under the chin is notoriously hard to tone. Despite such a significant population worrying about it, there are relatively few options to reduce the fullness under the chin without surgery.

Introducing the first minimally invasive injectable to destroy submental fat under the chin: Kybella.

Kybella is an incredible tool to target specific fat accumulations. It is a natural product our own body makes. Deoxycholic acid, a scary name for a very mundane secretion that the gall bladder makes, dissolves fat permanently.

How Do We Administer Kybella?

The product is simply injected using tiny needles. Kybella destroys the existing fat cells and disables the cells from retaining fat in the future. There will be some swelling and discomfort after the procedure, as the fat is dissolved and eliminated from your body. Because each person is unique, the number of treatments necessary to achieve the desired result varies. Most folks need two or more procedures to get the correction that they desire.

Is Kybella right for me?

Ideal candidates for Kybella should:

  • Want to reduce moderate to severe fat under the chin
  • Want to try a minimally invasive alternative to surgery
  • Be in good health

Your practitioner will create a treatment plan based on your specific needs, but many patients see results in 2 to 4 treatments.

The most common side effects are bruising, swelling, and redness but trouble swallowing may also take effect.

When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
