Many individuals experience excess submental fat under their chin and around their neck. Genetics, aging, hormonal changes and other factors can contribute the formation of a double chin. While liposuction or liposculpture can be used to remove chin fat, it does require surgery. A less invasive option for removing a double chin is Kybella® treatment. At pēkomd cosmetic surgery center, we offer Kybella injections for chin fat removal at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
A double chin can affect the shape of the neck, chin and jawline. Many individuals with excess chin fat are not overweight, but tend to store submental fat under the chin. The heavy chin can make some people look older and obscure the jawline. Removing the fat can restore a more attractive, youthful jawline and neck, improving the facial definition and profile.
Kybella uses deoxycholic acid as its main ingredient to target unwanted fat cells under the chin and around the neck. Kybella is FDA-approved to diminish submental fat with a series of injections. Deoxycholic acid naturally destroys fat cells – the fat is absorbed by the body and the cells are permanently removed with this treatment.
Non-Surgical Double Chin Removal
Kybella injections offer a non-surgical treatment to remove a double chin. The treatment requires multiple injections per session – most patients require 2-3 treatments to achieve the desired results. After each treatment, the fat under the chin dissipates over the weeks following the injections. Over several months, the jawline, chin and neck become slimmer and more defined as the fat deposits are removed.
Kybella injections are an ideal treatment for patients with good skin elasticity that want to remove submental fat under the chin. Those with loose skin from aging or weight gain may be better suited to surgical removal of excess fat and skin with a neck lift and liposuction.
