Whether it’s hereditary, weight-related, or just another symptom of aging, a double chin adds unwelcome years to your appearance and can make even a slim person look heavy.

You may have had that double chin since you were a child, or perhaps it made its appearance in adulthood along with a few extra pounds. Until recently the only option available for diminishing it would have been liposuction – but the downtime and recovery that procedure entails made it an unacceptable option for many.

If you’re among those saddled with an unsightly double chin and haven’t wanted to go through surgery to correct it, there’s a new product available in our practice: Kybella®. How does it work? Kybella® is an injectable treatment for adults that actually destroys the fat cells under your chin to improve your profile. The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Though results vary based on individual patients, Kybella® treatments can provide noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin – and a slimmer profile.*

When you come in for an initial consultation, I’ll assess the amount and distribution of the submental fat you have, and we’ll create a treatment plan based on your unique profile. Each treatment session consists of multiple small injections under your chin (most patients require two to four treatments). Kybella® is considered a “lunchtime procedure” because it only takes around 15 to 20 minutes to complete – and no downtime is needed.

Kybella® isn’t for everyone, and depending on many variables – for instance, what medical conditions you may have, or what kinds of medications and supplements you take – we may decide it’s not your best option. But for the majority of people who are good candidates for the procedure, it’s an excellent nonsurgical treatment. Contact us to learn more about Kybella®. We look forward to speaking with you!
