As we age, sadly, gravity takes over, and unfortunately the area under your chin where there is any excess fat or skin can be very noticeable, especially in photos! Up until recently, surgery was one of the only options to get rid of submental fat (double chin). Thankfully, the FDA recently approved a revolutionary new treatment called KYBELLA.
KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance found in our bodies naturally. When KYBELLA is injected, it destroys fat cells under the chin, leaving the skin much tighter and the jaw more contoured. According to Mona Gohara, MD, “more than 20 studies, with thousands of patients, have showed that almost 70 percent noted both physical and emotional improvement after treatment.”
Don’t have a lot of time? No problem! This injection takes less than 20 minutes on average, with minimal discomfort and little downtime. There can be some swelling and numbness, but it’s very temporary and very worth it to get rid of the extra fat – for good! Treatments vary from patient to patient, but typically most patients will need 2 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart.
So, this Thanksgiving, leave the “gobbler” on your turkey and get rid of your double chin forever!
