How You Can Eliminate a Double Chin

For most people, diet and exercise can only go so far in the battle against persistent fat. That’s because genetics, age, and hormones all influence where and how your body stores excess fat. Even when you do your best to stay active, eat well, and maintain a relatively healthy body weight, you may still find yourself dealing with submental fullness or a “double chin.”

If you’re troubled by stubborn fat beneath your chin, you’re not alone: More than three in five people with submental fullness believe their extra chin fat makes them look older, and they wish there was an easy way to get rid of it. Fortunately, Kybella® neck lift injections provide a simple, affordable, and effective solution for that pesky double chin.

Advances in minimally invasive aesthetic medicine have made it possible to dissolve extra submental fat and erase your double chin for good, without having to endure liposuction or undergo invasive cosmetic surgery. Read on to discover how Kybella can benefit you.  

A game-changing treatment for double chins

Kybella is an FDA-approved form of mesotherapy, a minimally invasive treatment that safely and effectively dissolves targeted fat cells through a series of small injections.

As a treatment that’s specifically designed to reduce excess chin fat, Kybella contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, a highly effective lipolysis agent that destroys unwanted fat cells without harming any surrounding tissues.

So how does it work? There’s a naturally occurring form of deoxycholic acid that’s present in your body; it plays a major role in helping your digestive system break down dietary fats for absorption. In much the same way, the active ingredient in Kybella disrupts the integrity of your fat cells, effectively undermining their ability to accumulate fat.

The result? After a complete treatment cycle, you’ll see a noticeable reduction in submental fullness, revealing an improved chin profile as well as a more youthful appearance.

Multiple treatments for optimal effect

Kybella is designed to work over the course of multiple treatments, with each session spaced at least four weeks apart. Some people see significant results after just two sessions, while others need as many as six sessions; if you’re like the average person, you can expect to achieve optimal results after just two to four treatments.   

Here at Mrudangi Thakur Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, PC, your treatment starts with a customized plan that addresses your personal needs. During each 20-minute Kybella session, Dr. Thakur administers multiple small injections under your chin. The exact number of injections you require depends on your degree of submental fullness as well as your desired chin profile.

Because the injections are so small and the process is so quick, most people don’t experience any discomfort. Common side effects, which include swelling, redness, bruising, and numbness, are generally brief and mild.

An ideal solution with long-lasting results

If living with a double chin makes you feel self-conscious about your appearance, heavier than you actually are, or older than you feel, Kybella may be just the solution you’ve been waiting for — especially if a healthy lifestyle doesn’t seem to be having any impact on this notoriously stubborn area of diet- and exercise-resistant fat.

As the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for submental fullness, Kybella is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive way to get rid of persistent chin fat and improve your facial profile without going under the knife.

Even better, once you’ve completed your entire Kybella treatment plan, you can expect long-lasting results that don’t require future upkeep. Unlike most other injectable cosmetic treatments, Kybella’s results are permanent.

If you’re ready to say goodbye to your double chin for good, Dr. Thakur and her team are ready to help. Call our Jefferson Valley, New York office today to learn more, or schedule a consultation any time using our convenient online booking feature.
