Improve Your Double Chin With Kybella

Posted on February 1, 2018 under Plastic Surgery

A double chin is a very common complaint caused by submental fullness. Extra fat under your chin can cause your jawline and chin profile to become lost! It can also steal the attention away from your facial features and make you look older. If you suffer from a double chin, it might be time to consider treatment with Kybella!

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella is an FDA approved injectable formula that can be placed under the chin to target fat cells. The formula works by breaking down these fat cells, preventing them from ever storing fat again. A board-certified surgeon can place the injections around the chin, avoiding any nerves.

Who Can Benefit?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of a double chin, you might consider Kybella treatment. however, there are many different treatment options to improve the chin area, so you’ll want to make sure your concerns can actually be addressed. Kybella is only successful at treating stubborn fat. If your double chin is caused by sagging skin, talk with your surgeon about a neck or facelift instead! You should also make sure that your double chin is not the result of poor eating habits or obesity. Kybella should only be used for stubborn fat that can’t be removed with proper diet and exercise.

What to Expect After

After treatment with Kybella, you might experience some mild swelling, bruising, and redness, but these should diminish within a few days. Because the fat cells were destroyed, you can expect long-lasting results as long as you maintain a healthy weight!
