Double Chin Treatment

Double Chin Treatment Roswell, GA

People with a double chin, also known as submental fat, have excess fatty tissue under their lower jaw. This common condition affects all men and women, young and old, and doesn’t necessarily happen due to weight issues.

Using Kybella for Double Chin Treatment

Kybella, also known as deoxycholic acid, is an injectable natural substance that dissolves fat in your body. Kybella attacks fat cells’ membranes in your body, causing them to turn to liquid form, allowing the body to absorb them. Kybella is popular due to its non-abrasiveness, rather than patients using other traditional methods to get rid of double chin, such as fat excision and liposuction.

Kybella treatments should be permanent since it destroys the fat cells that make up the double chin. However, gaining weight can cause a double chin to return, so maintaining a good diet and exercise program will help solidify your results. 

Should I use Kybella for my double chin?

Kybella isn’t for everyone. It is meant for adults, so you must wait until you are an adult to consider Kybella. For those who have difficulty with swallowing, bleeding issues, weak facial muscles or if you have infections under your chin, it is not wise to get a Kybella injection. 

Kybella is used for excess submental fat, meaning those who have just excess skin, should not use Kybella, as it would not help in this case. Tightening devices or surgery may be your path in this case. 

It is very important to meet with your doctor to discuss your wants and needs as well as possible causes of your double chin. This is the best way to get to your desired results.
