Let’s face it; nobody wants a double chin! However, many adults struggle with excess fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness. A double chin can be caused by many different factors, including weight gain, hereditary, and aging. Many find that submental fullness is very stubborn, and cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise alone.
What Can You Do to Eliminate Submental Fullness?
For those who wish to eliminate their double chin without undergoing invasive surgery, Kybella can help. Kybella is an injectable treatment that is made up of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat.
Treatment is quick and easy, usually only taking 15-20 minutes to complete. Multiple small injections will be administered into the submental fullness, and most people need to undergo a series of six treatments to see optimal results.
What is Recovery Like?
After a Kybella treatment, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, and numbness in the treatment area. This should resolve quickly, usually within a week. There is no downtime needed after treatment, which means you get back to your everyday life right away! However, try to avoid strenuous activities for a few days.
Patients who are tired of living with submental fullness can turn to Kybella for a slimmer chin contour. If you are interested in Kybella and live in the Tucson area, contact our office today! We would be more than happy to schedule your consultation with Dr. Eades.
