Dreaded double chin
A double chin occurs when a layer of fat forms below the chin. A double chin is often associated with weight gain, but you don’t have to be overweight to have one. Genetics or looser skin resulting from aging may also cause a dreaded double chin.
Kybella (deoxycholic acid) injection, designed specifically for this submental fullness, can give you back your youthful chin profile. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
Your treatment plan may include up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments.
SmartLipo that dreaded double chin
SmartLipo is a minimally-invasive procedure that liquefies and extracts fat from pockets in many places on your body, including your chin. The fat cells, once removed, don’t return if you follow a healthy diet and exercise program after you recover from the procedure. Because SmartLipo leaves no scars, recovery can be quick. Having options to discuss that can relieve you of that dreaded double chin is a great feeling! Be sure to ask all your questions during your consultation with Dr. Nangrani.
