Are you distressed by the fat under your chin? If so, you are not alone! A double chin is typically caused by excess weight and genetics, but it can also creep up gradually as you age. Excess fat can change the shape of your chin and dramatically affect the appearance of your face and neck. But, there is good news. Kybella® is a nonsurgical double chin removal option for improving your profile and restoring more attractive contours to your face.
Kybella® Vs Surgery
Many Americans struggle with a double chin, which can be minimally to dramatically exaggerated when combined with lax skin caused by weight gain, weight loss and aging. Three cosmetic treatments remove this stubborn area of fat; these include neck liposuction, neck lifts, and Kybella®. Liposuction may be completed alone or combined with a neck lift. Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which a cannula is inserted under the skin to remove fat. This procedure takes about an hour and requires a few days of rest. A neck lift is a more serious surgical procedure that involves openings made behind the ears and beneath the chin. The muscles in the neck are separated from the skin and tightened. The excess skin is then removed and repositioned. The recovery time can take a couple of weeks.
Kybella® is a nonsurgical procedure that treats the fat under your chin. Facial plastic surgery can be eliminated, and you can remove a double chin and improve the appearance of the lower portion of your face with the nonsurgical enhancement of Kybella®. This is a minimally-invasive treatment designed for the removal of fat from under the chin. Each injection contains deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body to dissolve fat.
Ideal Kybella® Candidates
You may be considered a candidate if you have an area with unwanted supplemental fat under your chin. The ideal candidate is close to their ideal weight and is in good health. Men and women benefit from this nonsurgical procedure and experience contouring that removes their dreaded double chin.
Kybella® is tailored to match your needs based on the amount of fat that needs be removed. Each administration is strategically placed to dissolve and ultimately remove the pockets of fat collected under the chin. The skin naturally tightens as the fat is dissolved, and the procedure requires little to no downtime. You will receive instructions on how to stay comfortable and safe during the healing process.
