Some people are born with a double chin, and despite persistent dieting and exercise, they can’t seem to get rid of it. The problem with this type of double chin is that it’s hereditary. Although excess body weight can make it more noticeable, it’s primarily caused by genetics. The problem is commonly called submental fullness, and it can make you look heavier and older than you really are. If you’d like to improve your appearance and get rid of your double chin, you can undergo surgery, but if you’re like most people, you may want to explore less invasive options first. If you fall into this category, Kybella® may be able to help you.
Kybella® is specially designed to get rid of excess fat under the chin. For years, injectable formulas have been used to combat the effects of aging, but before Kybella®, there was no injectable available for the treatment of a double chin.
What Are the Benefits?
If you’re considering this treatment, you might like to know about all the benefits that come with it. The major advantage of choosing Kybella® is an effective reduction in chin fat. Since it’s an injectable formula, you get to enjoy a reduction in excess fat under the chin without any surgery or downtime.
In addition, since the injection completely disables the fat cells in the treated area, you may never have to worry about excess fat under the chin again if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
Kybella® is made deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced in the body. When injected as part of your treatment, deoxycholic acid keeps fat cells from being able to store fat. As a result, you get to enjoy a noticeable reduction in excess fat under the chin.
The exact number of treatments needed will depend on your specific situation, but most patients see best results with two to four treatments. Dr. Rao will help you determine the best number of treatment sessions for you during your consultation.
The Science Behind Kybella®
Once injected, the formula goes to work to break down excess fat in the treated area by permanently disabling the fat cells. When Kybella® is injected into the submental area, it effectively dissolves the fat that is responsible for your double chin. Once you’re finished with the series of injections, you’ll benefit from an enhanced jaw line and better contours without the need for surgery.
Should You Consider This Treatment?
Many people make good candidates for this safe and proven procedure. If you’re bothered by the fat under your chin, and you’ve become very self-conscious about it, then Kybella® could be right for you.
This treatment is a great choice for patients who don’t want or don’t qualify for undergo invasive surgery. It is also a popular choice among patients who aren’t able to eliminate submental fat with standard diet and exercise alone.
