Each person carries fat differently. Some people’s bodies store fat around their midsection, while others’ send it to their legs. Some people also struggle with fat deposits under their chin, making them look heavier than they should.
Fortunately, if you’re plagued by a double chin, Dr. Peymon Zarreii and our team have just what you need. Here at Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics in Delray Beach, Florida, we offer Kybella®, a convenient, injection-based treatment to destroy fat under your chin.
If you’ve ever wished you could get a more svelte profile, Kybella could be for you. Let’s learn more about it.
While diet and exercise can help to get rid of fat stores under your chin — called submental fullness — some people struggle with a double chin even if they’re at a healthy weight. Things you can’t control, like age and genetics, can make you more likely to deal with this profile problem.
Fortunately, Kybella delivers an FDA-approved treatment specifically designed to target fat cells under your chin. It works because it consists of deoxycholic acid, which breaks down the cells in your fatty tissue. It also helps your body absorb those now broken-down fat cells, leaving you with a trimmed under-chin area.
Kybella destroys the fat cells it treats for good. That means that as long as you avoid gaining weight, your results should be permanent.
What to expect with Kybella
Kybella is a minimally invasive treatment that usually only takes about 20 minutes.
The process starts with a conversation with Dr. Zarreii. He can help you determine if Kybella is right for you.
If so, he pinpoints the right location(s) to inject the Kybella solution under your chin and the right number of treatments to deliver your ideal results. Each treatment gets spaced a month apart so your body can absorb and flush out the fat cells destroyed in the last treatment.
Some people achieve their ideal profile with one Kybella treatment, but most people opt for around six treatments to get rid of the most fat possible.
There’s no downtime with Kybella. You may have some bruising or swelling under your chin immediately afterward, but it fades quickly and it shouldn’t keep you from any important activities.
