Ditch the Dreaded Double Chin With Kybella®

A double chin is a concern for many. Unfortunately, a healthy diet and exercise cannot melt away the fat under your chin. Instead, weight loss occurs throughout the body, and spot reduction is impossible. This leaves your fat distribution at the mercy of your hormones and genetic makeup. 

Until recently, liposuction was the only way you could remove under-the-chin fat. However, many people don’t have the time to go through a lengthy recovery period or aren’t comfortable with going under the knife. Plus, if you’re a smoker or you suffer from diabetes, you may be advised against having any type of surgery for cosmetic reasons. 

At Best Impression Med Spa Board-certified Plastic Surgeons, Robert Mirabile, MD, and Vivian Hsu, MD use an FDA-approved procedure that melts away the fat tissue under the chin without incisions, scars, or pain. Stick with us to learn more about Kybella® and find out whether it’s the right procedure for your aesthetic goals. 

How Kybella eliminates fat in the chin area 

Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that breaks down and absorbs fat in your digestive tract. When injected into your fat tissues, deoxycholic acid damages your fat cells, enabling your body to safely remove them. 

The treatment is most effective when you receive at least 2-4 treatments spaced one month apart. The first results are visible just 4-6 weeks after the first round of injections. Once the fat cells are flushed out, the results are permanent. 

Recovery and satisfaction rates 

Kybella is a noninvasive procedure that comes with a low risk for serious side effects. You may experience some mild pain and irritation due to the injections, but most of our patients resume their daily activities on the same day of the procedure. 

In a study conducted on 500 patients, more than 82% reported significantly improved satisfaction with their appearance after receiving injections with deoxycholic acid. If you’re wondering how well it reduces fat in the chin area, take a look at the Kybella photos in our before and after gallery for injectables. 

Melt away fat with zero effort

If you’re in overall good health and your main issue is fat accumulation under the chin, not loss of skin elasticity, you may be a good candidate for Kybella.

At Best Impression Med Spa, we can help you eliminate your double chin with no downtime, no incisions, and no scars. Contact us to schedule an appointment and find out whether Kybella is the right procedure for your needs. Call our office in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania or use the online booking tool.
