Non-Surgical Treatment for a “Double Chin”
An accumulation of excess fat under the chin and in the upper regions of the neck – often referred to as a “double chin” – is a very common condition, even in people who are of a healthy weight. In the past, surgery was the only way to effectively resolve the issue; however, a revolutionary new treatment is changing that. KYBELLA™ is a non-surgical, injectable product designed to dissolve fat that has collected under the chin. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for patients over 18, KYBELLA™ can be an ideal solution for individuals looking to reduce the appearance of a double chin without the need for excessive downtime.
“Excellent customer service and outcome.”
Benefits of Kybella™
KYBELLA™ is the first and only non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA to minimize submental fullness (excess fat accumulation under the chin). The treatment does not involve surgery of any kind and it is often a quick, in-office procedure. KYBELLA™ can dramatically reduce excess fat in the area and enhance your facial contours with beautiful results. There is typically no downtime required after KYBELLA™, and the results are often long-lasting – potentially even permanent.
Patients who have a double chin due to loose, inelastic skin, rather than fat, may not be the best candidates for this procedure. When your plastic surgeon meets with you for an initial consultation, she can evaluate your needs and help you determine whether KYBELLA™ or an alternative treatment option, like liposuction, is best for your goals.
