Is double chin reduction possible without surgery?

Are you unhappy with your pesky double chin, but would like to get rid of it without having surgery?   If yes, you will be happy to learn about Kybella.  

Is double chin reduction possible without surgery?

Yes.  Double chin reduction is possible using an effective, non-surgical option known as Kybella.  Kybella is a one-of-a-kind cosmetic injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness, commonly referred to as a double chin. 

Fullness beneath the chin is often the result of factors such as weight gain, genetics, or general aging. Whatever the reason for your double chin, Kybella can destroy the fat cells, and improve chin and neck contours.

What exactly is Kybella?

Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid.  Deoxycholic acid is a substance that is found naturally in the body, and assists with the breakdown of dietary fat.  When injected into the subcutaneous fat below the chin, Kybella dissolves the fat cells, which are then naturally removed from the body over the course of several weeks.

Kybella is a safe, simple treatment that consists of a series of injections into the excess fat below the chin.  

How many Kybella treatments do I need?

Doctors recommend a series of 3 Kybella treatments to achieve optimal fat reduction in the area below the chin.  However, depending on the volume of fat present, some patients may require up to 6 treatments.

Am I a candidate for Kybella?

If you are bothered by excess fat under the chin, and have not been able to reduce it with diet and exercise, you may be a candidate for Kybella.
