Don’t Photoshop That Double Chin – Get Rid of it Without Surgery

You know that sinking feeling when a friend tags you in a photo on social media. You open it and see that dreaded double chin. Or, like many people, you may take the time to edit your double chin out of photos before you post them online.

A double chin can be frustrating and embarrassing, especially when you work hard to take care of yourself. In the age of online photos and smartphone cameras everywhere, feeling self-conscious about a double chincan affect your confidence. Perhaps you thought the only way to correct this was with surgery, and you’re not ready to take that step.

Why Do I Have a Double Chin?

The double chin, known medically as submental fullness, is an extremely common problem. It affects people of nearly any age, shape, size, and skin type. Often, it is due to gravity and genetics, which are factors we cannot control. And until recently, a neck lift or liposuction was the only effective way to eliminate it. But with the introduction of Kybella®, all that has changed.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is designed to destroy fat cells in the chin area with special injections and no surgery. Because it’s a minimally invasive treatment, there is little to no downtime and no anesthesia. The FDA-approved treatments are done in-office and many people go back to daily activities afterward.

Kybella’s full results are seen after two to four treatments for many people. It’s a safe, effective way to slim and contour the chin area without surgery, so it fits into most busy lifestyles.The treatments will be spaced a few weeks apart for best results. Your plastic surgeon can discuss the best treatment schedule for you.

Where Should I Get Kybella?

Like any cosmetic or aesthetic treatment, you need to talk with a qualified and skilled plastic surgeon before you move forward. Although Kybella works effectively for many people, only a board certified facial plastic surgeon can tell you if it’s the right treatment for your needs and cosmetic goals.

In addition, Kybella treatments should only be performed by a professional who understands facial aesthetics. Giving too much, not enough, or injecting it in the wrong places may produce less effective results. Unfortunately, there are many providers who are willing to give Kybella to patients without the proper skill and technique under their belts. Get it done right the first time by using the right provider!
