One of the most undertreated facial aesthetic conditions is submental fullness—more commonly known as double chin. It affects men and women and is caused by a variety of factors including aging, weight gain and genetics.
Often, diet and exercise alone are not effective ways to reduce submental fullness. Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved, nonsurgical treatment for double chin. The active ingredient in Kybella™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that breaks down and absorbs fat. Once injected into the submental fat, the cells are destroyed and are no longer able to store or accumulate fat. It usually requires several sessions.
Our physicians can help you determine if Kybella™ or liposuction is right for you.
