A double chin is not necessarily the result of being overweight or getting older. Sometimes it’s just hereditary. No matter what the reason for it, no one likes having them. When it comes to getting rid of a double chin, there are multiple options but the biggest decision is whether to choose a surgical or non-surgical procedure.
Since the 1980s, liposuction has been one of the most popular choices when it comes to choosing a surgical procedure for getting rid of a double chin. The procedure is performed by a board certified surgeon. Excess fat cells are carefully removed through a small, hollow tube called a cannula. The cannula is gently moved through the fat deposit while suction is applied, removing the excess fat cells and eliminating the double chin.
But why go under the knife if you don’t have to? While liposuction has progressed since the eighties, becoming less invasive, there are other effective non-surgical procedures for getting rid of a double chin and Kybella is one of them. Specifically designed for double chins, also known as submental fullness, Kybella can give you the lift you want.
What is Kybella?
A prescription medicine, Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental fat resulting in a double chin. It contains a naturally occurring molecule that dissolves fat, which your body then flushes out.
Benefits Of Kybella
Less Invasive – So many cosmetic procedures have evolved beyond surgical options and Kybella is among them. It offers a much less extreme option for getting rid of that double chin. With just a series of small injections administered by a trained and licensed practitioner, it is possible for you to achieve the profile you always wanted.
Quick Procedure – Your practitioner will evaluate your individual needs and determine how many injections are necessary to achieve the desired results. While this may cause treatment time to vary, typically they take about 20 minutes. In addition to being quick, the treatments don’t require any general anesthesia.
No Down Time – With virtually no down time, those who receive the treatment may return to their daily activities immediately. There may be a bit of tenderness, swelling or bruising in the area that was injected which is temporary and will dissipate.
Permanent Solution – Kybella is not a temporary solution to the problem of a double chin. The results of this procedure are permanent. Once the treatment has been completed, there won’t be a reason to have them done again. The excess fat cells destroyed and eliminated by the process are gone for good.
Youthful Results – A double chin can often make you appear older than you actually are and no one wants that. By getting rid of a double chin, not only is the jawline redefined, your appearance will be more youthful and your confidence level boosted.
Is Kybella Right for You?
As is true with any procedure, Kybella may not be right for everyone. It tends to be most effective on those with moderate to severe submental fullness and a good degree of skin elasticity which allows the skin to bounce back.
It’s not as ideal for people to have excess skin under the chin and in the neck area as well as excess fat. These individuals may find that after the fat is dissolved, the appearance of loose skin may be intensified.
