If you have a double chin, chances are you’ve tried a lot of things to get rid of it.
You’ve eaten the right foods. You’ve logged in plenty of time at the gym. Maybe you’ve even tried out face exercises – but no matter what you’ve tried, you just aren’t seeing that double chin give up.
Blame it on aging, poor skin laxity, genetics, or all three. Whatever the case may be, double chins are notoriously hard to get rid of…
Unless you try Kybella, of course.
How Kybella Works on a Double Chin
Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that contains deoxycholic acid as an active ingredient. When injected into the submental tissue (that’s underchin fat to the rest of us), the acid gets to work burning away fat cells while leaving surrounding tissue healthy. Over the course of eight to twelve weeks, patients can see a noticeable difference with their double chin fat. In some cases, patients can use up to 2-3 Kybella treatments to effectively eliminate the appearance of a double chin.
While Kybella is a popular treatment option with many patients, liposuction is still a preferred method for getting rid of double chin fat. Sometimes liposuction can be less expensive than Kybella, as it’s used in a small area. In most cases, liposuction for double chin fat can be performed in under an hour, with better results, and in one treatment (as opposed to 2-3 Kybella injections). Submental liposuction can be done under local anesthesia, so removing neck & chin fat this way requires little downtime!
