For men with a double chin, committing to an intense surgical procedure may be a little difficult. With Kybella, you can destroy your double chin without surgeries, scarring or downtime.
Kybella is an FDA-approved alternative to liposuction to rid your body of fat below your chin. This non-surgical procedure requires no downtime and uses the synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body to destroy the fat cells.
Am I a good candidate?
Those looking to rid their body of fat below their chin are great candidates for this procedure. Kybella, however, is not used to tighten the skin on the neck, therefore those seeking fat reduction and tightening may want to consider a neck lift or ThermiTight.
How is a Kybella treatment performed?
A Kybella injection will require many small injections in specific spots beneath your chin. Once injected, the toxin will destroy the fat cells in less than 30-minutes. Once the cell membrane is destroyed, the body will then metabolize the fat. Two to four follow-up treatments may be recommended monthly to achieve your goals.
Results and Recovery
Post-injection, you may experience some swelling, redness and discomfort, but this should subside within a few days. You may require additional treatments depending on the amount of fat necessary for removal to achieve your aesthetic goals. Over the course of a few months, you will notice continual improvement
