If you are embarrassed by extra fat under your chin creating a double chin effect, you are not alone. A recent survey by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery found that 73 percent of people were unhappy with their appearance because of excess fat in the neck.
A man’s body confidence can be especially affected by the appearance of a double chin because our society associates masculinity with a chiseled jaw line. Kybella® can help you regain a more masculine jawline so that you feel more comfortable in collared shirts and ties and more confident in your overall appearance.
The neck is one area of the body in which stubborn pockets of fat can settle into and that fat will not budge no matter how dedicated you are to diet and exercise.
Kybella is a non-invasive injectable that allows you to eliminate that double chin without downtime for plastic surgery. Kybella is a form a deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring chemical in the body. It is injected into the fatty area under the chin to break up the membranes of the fat cells. Your immune system then naturally works to remove those broken up fat cells.
Depending on your specific needs, you may require a few treatment sessions, which last 10-15 minutes and are spaced about a month apart. Because those fat cells have been eliminated, your results will be long lasting.
