The dreaded “double chin” is a very common concern amongst men and women of all body types. When fat accumulates under the chin, it can often be extremely difficult to get rid of — the fat cells in this particular region tend to be resistant to diet and exercise. When personal efforts seem ineffective, many begin to seek assistance from cosmetic treatments. While liposuction has traditionally been a very effective procedure for this concern, KYBELLA® now offers patients a non-surgical option.
KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved solution that can be strategically injected to break down stubborn fat cells under the chin. Once it has been administered, KYBELLA® works to gradually reduce fat in the treatment area. As your body filters out the destroyed fat cells, results should become increasingly apparent. Some patients may need to return to our office for follow-up treatments in order to attain ideal results; however, once the desired outcome is achieved, most patients will not need to return for any further retreatment.
If you are looking for a non-surgical way to eliminate a double chin, please contact us today to learn more, or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Thomas Lintner. In your consultation, Dr. Lintner can help you determine if KYBELLA® is right for you.
