Are you self-conscious of your double chin? Men and women of all ages can have extra fat under their chin, diminishing the definition of the jawline, face and neck. Diet and exercise cannot target this specific area of fat accumulation that may be caused by genetics. If you want to reduce the fat deposits under your chin with liposuction or surgery, Kybella injections may be right for you. At Blaine Plastic Surgery, we offer double chin treatments with Kybella injections or other facial injections at our clinics in Huntington, Staten Island and New York City, NY.
Get Rid of Your Double Chin
Kybella is a perfect treatment option for patients who are unhappy with their jawline contour and complain of a double chin. This injectable treatment works to improve your profile and eliminate submental fat (fat underneath the chin) by breaking down and destroying fat cells in this area using an injection of deoxycholic acid. Once these cells have been eliminated, they are no longer functional and cannot store fat, so fullness in this very noticeable area will not return. Kybella is a quick, non-surgical option for those who are self-conscious about excess fat under their chin.
To perform Kybella treatment for a double chin, several injections are needed to target the fatty areas under the chin. The session can be performed in less than half an hour with little to no discomfort or downtime. The fat cells will begin dissolving and the area will shrink over the next several weeks. Most patients require 2-3 treatments of Kybella over a few months to achieve the chin definition they desire. Once the double chin disappears, it is gone for good, as those fat cells that are destroyed cannot reproduce.
If you are tired of seeing a chubby chin when you video chat on your phone, in photos or in the mirror, consider seeking Kybella injection treatment. Contact us at Blaine Plastic Surgery in New York to schedule a consultation to determine whether Kybella injections are right for you.
