Fullness under the chin is a common problem encountered by both men and women. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to this problem including genetics, aging, and weight gain. However, many people with fullness of this area are not overweight and are unable to get rid of this stubborn fat despite diet and exercise.
Deoxycholic acid, also known as Kybella, was approved for use in 2015 and has revolutionized the way we treat a ‘double chin’. Previously the only options for treating this area were liposuction and surgery. However, we now have a minimally invasive agent that provides consistent, effective results.
Kybella is unique and is an FDA approved agent that improves fullness associated with submental fat. Kybella is administered in the office and is often tolerated well.
