A double chin can be a source of frustration for many men and women. Excess fat can gather in the submental area, which is located between your neck and chin, and can be difficult or even impossible to address through traditional fat removal methods like diet and exercise. For those who have tried to get rid of a double chin with no success, Kybella™ injections can help to remove these exercise-resistant fat cells, resulting in a slimmer, better-defined jawline and chin.
Contact us online or call our office in Noblesville, Indiana to learn more about our options to remove a double chin. Our team of surgeons has helped thousands of men and women throughout the state of Indiana feel confident in their appearance through Kybella™ injections.
Kybella™ is a nonsurgical injectable treatment option that can help men and women get rid of the appearance of a double chin. Kybella™ works to remove a double chin by dissolving the small pockets of stubborn fat beneath your chin, improving the contours of your face.
The best candidates for Kybella™ will have excess submental fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, will be in good overall health, have good skin and muscle tone and should require minimal tissue tightening in the area beneath the chin. During your initial consultation with one of our skilled cosmetic surgeons, you can discuss your unique goals and expectations for your results in order to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. For men and women interested in a surgical procedure to correct their double chin, chin liposuction may be a preferred option.
Your Kybella™ Injections
Kybella™ works by injecting a form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in our bodies that helps to metabolize fat cells, into the area between your chin and neck. These injections then melt away the persistent fat cells, which your body will naturally expel, leaving you with the slimmer, well-defined contours and profile that you desire.
Although many men and women notice significant improvements in the appearance of their double chin after just one treatment, multiple sessions may be necessary in order to better remove a double chin. Generally speaking, most people receive 2 to 4 Kybella™ injections before they notice their final results, though the number of sessions you may need can vary.
Your Recovery & Results
Administering your Kybella™ injections will generally take less than 20 minutes, and because it’s a nonsurgical procedure, most people can expect to return to their normal activities immediately afterwards. Although some redness, swelling or bruising may occur, these side effects are common and should diminish over the next days and weeks, revealing your smooth, contoured results.
Because Kybella™ injections actually remove fat cells from the double chin area, your results can be very long-lasting. It is, however, important to maintain healthy living habits to ensure that you can enjoy your excellent results for years to come, as new fatty deposits can occur in the same area due to significant weight fluctuations.
