There is a small area under the chin that can sometimes become full. This area, known as “submental fat” or “the double chin”, is bothersome for many people because no matter what they do or how much weight is lost, that area under the chin stays the same. Kybella offers a solution for patients ready to get rid of this problematic area.
Kybella received FDA approval in 2015 for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe submental fat in adults via injection to the affected area. Kybella is a formulation of deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body that helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. It works by destroying fat cells and once destroyed, the cells cannot store or collect fat. The end result is a nicely contoured chin.
Some candidates are a good fit for Kybella, while others may have better outcomes with neck liposuction. Please contact us today at (602) 222-9111 to schedule a complimentary consultation and find out what treatment is right for you.
