A slim and contoured face, chin, and neck help you look and feel younger. However, it is very common for men and women alike to accumulate extra fat in the chin and neck regions as they age. This is a condition known as submental fullness and commonly called a double chin. Double chins are often unresponsive to diet and exercise, which may leave you feeling frustrated and hopeless as you work to enhance your appearance.
This is why Dr. William Adams Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in St. Petersburg, Florida is so excited to now offer Kybella, the first and only FDA-approved treatment for submental fullness. Kybella is an injectable that reduces the appearance of moderate to severe fat on the neck and chin in order to contour the area and create a smoother, younger appearance.
The Mystery Behind Your Double Chin
Even if you aren’t carrying extra weight on your body, you may find that you are forming a double chin on your face. This occurs when the natural layer of fat on your chin begins to slip down and become saggy. Instead of that fat providing contour and protection to your chin like it did when you were younger, it creates the unwanted double chin effect.
Kybella Busts Fat and Leaves a Contoured Appearance
Kybella is a clinically proven injection that dissolves extra fat in the chin and neck area while simultaneously tightening and smoothing the skin above the fat. Its main ingredient, deoxycholic acid, exists naturally in the body to break down and absorb fat. When Kybella’s deoxycholic acid is injected directly into the double chin, it works in two distinct ways to eliminate your double chin. First, it permanently destroys existing fat to reduce fullness under the chin. Second, it prevents cells in that area from storing and accumulating fat in the future.
What Is the Treatment Like?
Dr. Adams will work with you to determine how many Kybella treatments you will need to achieve the results you desire. Most patients receive between two to six injections over a six-month span. You can expect to enjoy visible results after the first few injections! Best of all, with a healthy lifestyle, your results will last permanently and help you enjoy a smooth, beautiful contour under your chin.
