Submental fullness, more commonly known as a double chin, is a situation that a lot of people are dealing with. They may be at a healthy weight and have a slim body, but they still have a double chin. The problem with having fat under your chin is that there is no real way to target that fat. You can lose weight over your whole body, but you still may be with left with fat in this area. Unfortunately, we can’t target where we lose our unwanted fat. If you are at a healthy weight but still have a double chin, what options are available?
In years past, the only real option that could help someone who was serious about getting rid of their double chin was liposuction. A lot of people have had success using liposuction to get rid of a double chin, but it is a surgical procedure. Not everyone wants or qualifies for a surgical procedure, especially when it comes to getting rid of unwanted fat in a specific area such as underneath the chin. That’s where Kybella® comes in.
Kybella® is a medication that is injected directly into the excess, unwanted fat underneath your chin. The secret behind this popular injectable treatment is deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body to help break down dietary fat. When injected underneath the chin, it breaks down and destroys the fat cells it comes into contact with. As the fat cells are destroyed, the body naturally flushes them out as waste.
Several injections need to be made over the entire area under your chin in order to get the most even and best results. The number of treatment sessions and injections you will need per session will depend on factors such as your personal goals and how much unwanted fat you have in the area.
After your initial consultation, we will be able to give you a good idea of how many injections will be needed during each treatment session and how many treatment sessions you will need to be able to remove your double chin with Kybella®.
