Can I reduce under chin fat without surgery?

Are you bothered by fat below the chin (double chin), but you’re interested in a non-surgical fix? Everyone knows that a double chin is one of those areas on the body that it is virtually impossible to contour with diet and exercise, but can you reduce under chin fat without surgery.

Can I reduce under chin fat without surgery?

Yes you can. It is possible to reduce under chin fat with a revolutionary fat reduction treatment called Kybella.

Kybella is a cosmetic injectable that is identical in make-up to deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is made naturally by the body, and is used to metabolize dietary fat.

How Kybella reduces under chin fat?

Kybella is injected into the fat below the chin using a tiny needle. When injected, Kybella breaks down the membrane of the fat cells, and this effectively destroys them. The treated cells are then expelled from the body over the following weeks.

Kybella is an outpatient procedure. A single treatment may consist of as many as 20-30 injections. Most patients need 3-4 sessions to achieve the desired results with Kybella, but this may vary depending on individual needs. Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Who is a good candidate for Kybella?

Kybella is ideal for men and women that are looking for an answer to fat below the chin, but are not yet ready for surgery. Candidates for Kybella should also be in at a stable weight and in good overall health.
