If you are bothered by the fullness under your chin, also known as submental fat, consider Kybella. Submental fat can be due to weight gain, aging or genetics. Sometimes, even with diet or exercise, this fullness may not go away.
Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying the fat cells. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. Results are permanent. Once the aesthetic response is achieved further treatment is not expected.
Kybella is an option for you if:
- You are bothered by a double chin
- You don’t want surgery (neck liposuction)
- You feel that the fullness under your chin makes you look heavier than you are
- You eat well and exercise but submental fullness does not go away
