Cos Cob, CT patients who are unhappy with the appearance of excess fat underneath the chin, playfully referred to as the “double chin,” now have a nonsurgical way to address it. This excess fat, known medically as “submental fullness,” is problematic for both men and women. It often has nothing to do with weight, and more to do with genetics. The double chin can keep patients from desiring photographs of themselves, which often make them appear heavier than they are.
In the past, the only way to resolve this excess fat was with liposuction at a plastic surgeon’s office. But now, there’s another approach! At NaturallYou in Cos Cob, CT, we are pleased to provide a simple injectable that can reduce submental fullness over time: Kybella.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella is formulated with deoxycholic acid, which can target and break down fat where it is injected. When the providers at NaturallYou inject this formula into the chin area, it will start the process of removing fat. This occurs naturally through the body’s lymphatic system over the course of several months, during which patients will notice a gradual improvement in their profile appearance and the frontal view of their face. These small changes can help patients keep their secret of “having work done” without the scarring or downtime associated with alternative solutions.
Is Kybella safe?
Kybella is one of the first FDA-approved injectables that is designed to reduce fat in the chin area, and continues to be a popular choice for many of our patients who are faced with liposuction as another option. Liposuction carries several risks, and requires downtime and healing, while Kybella can be done quickly in the office, allowing patients to return to their normal activities immediately. It is safe, effective, and convenient!
