Can I get rid of my double chin without surgery?

Are you tired of your double chin, but don’t want to undergo surgery to get rid of the excess fat.   Thankfully, there is now a simple, non-surgical option for this common condition, and it’s known as Kybella.  But what exactly is Kybella, and how can it reduce your double chin.

Kybella melts away fat without surgery

Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment for moderate-to-severe submental fat (fat below the chin).   It is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

How does Kybella work?

When Kybella is injected into the fat below the chin it destroys the membrane of the fat cells, so they can’t store fat anymore. 

Multiple treatments are required to get optimal results with Kybella.  Most people achieve their required goals with 2-3 sessions.  Each session takes approximately 15-20 minutes.

Are there any side effects

Swelling, bruising, and numbness are the most common side-effects of Kybella treatment.

How do you know if Kybella is right for you?

If you would like to get rid of your double chin, but don’t want to undergo surgery, you may be a good candidate for Kybella.  Candidates for Kybella should also be over the age of 18. 

Although Kybella is a safe, effective treatment for submental fat, it’s not for everyone.  It’s therefore essential to consult with a Kybella specialist to determine if the procedure would be right for you (learn more).
