Have you ever opened your phone’s camera app just to find your own double chin staring back at you? We’ve all been there. Initially, we’re horrified. Then, using the camera as a mirror, we lift our chins, find our perfect angle and snap the perfect selfie. However, the horrifying image of that double chin haunts us. Why is it there? How can someone who takes care of their health and fitness have a double chin? Well, honey, it’s genetics! That’s right, it’s your DNA. That may feel hopeless, but it isn’t. You can now lose the double chin without liposuction with Kybella, the FDA-approved non-surgical double chin reduction treatment.
Forget Liposuction: Non-Surgical Double Chin Reduction With Kybella
From the makers of Botox, Kybella was the first FDA-approved treatment for unwanted submental fullness. While other non-surgical fat reduction treatments were approved for other treatment areas all over the body, none of them treated double chin fat. Kybella filled that need for patients looking to reduce that double chin fat without liposuction.
How Kybella Works
Essentially, Kybella is an injectable fat melter. When injected into the unwanted, excess submental fat, Kybella gets to work targeting fat cells. The fat cells are dissolved and subsequently flushed from the body through the lymphatic system. After a series of repeated treatments, most patients see a noticeable reduction in double chin fat.
Prior to your Kybella treatment, your provider will mark the area with a grid pattern to denote injection sites. We will ensure your comfort with injectable lidocaine to numb the treatment area. Once the lidocaine is working, we will perform a series of injections along the grid to target the fat cells. After treatment, ice is applied to help with any swelling and mild discomfort.
The FDA approved Kybella for non-surgical double chin reduction, and most healthy adults can safely receive Kybella.
Kybella doesn’t work for everyone. Some patients will see better results with a liposuction treatment with a plastic surgeon. During your consultation, we will assess your submentum and determine if you’re a good candidate for Kybella non-surgical double chin reduction. If not, we will refer you to a local plastic surgeon in the Scottsdale and Chandler, AZ areas.
