Up to 47% of the United States population suffers from the dreaded double chin, which is also called submental fat. Fat builds up under the chin due to dietary insufficiencies, genetics, and/or lack of physical activity. By eating better and engaging in regular exercise, some patients can reduce or even eliminate that stubborn chin fat. However, for patients who cannot, Kybella® may be the answer.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a treatment administered via an injection to treat excess submental fat. Kybella® is made of deoxycholic acid, which is injected directly into the chin’s fat deposits to disintegrate the fat cells. These destroyed fat cells are absorbed by the body, never to return again, making Kybella® a permanent treatment. Read More
