What Causes Submental Fullness?
The area underneath the chin, also referred to as the submental area, can accumulate excess fat and create the appearance of a double chin. In a recent study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly 70 percent of men and women reported feeling dissatisfied with their submental fullness. This common condition can be caused by multiple factors such as the natural aging process, weight gain, and genetics. This part of the lower face is difficult to target with diet and exercise, and at DuPage Plastic Surgery, we offer Kybella® for safe, non-surgical submental fat reduction.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is made of deoxycholic acid, which is found naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. This is the first treatment of its kind on the aesthetic market and it has been extensively tested by the FDA for safety and efficacy. A series of two to four treatment sessions is typically recommended for maximum results, which can be discussed with our medical team during your consultation.
How Does Kybella® Work?
This injectable treatment is administered into fatty tissue underneath the chin. The deoxycholic acid then destroys fat cells, disabling them from accumulating or storing fat in the future. This creates a natural lift and tightening of the submental area for a more elevated chin and jawline.
What are the Benefits of Kybella®?
- Visible results in as few as two to four treatments
- No surgery
- Zero downtime
- Fast, convenient treatment for busy patients
- Suitable for both men and women
Are There Any Side Effects?
As deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body, it typically carries no complications in patients who qualify. Slight bruising, swelling, and redness may develop at injection sites but typically fades after a day or so.
