Excess fat under the chin is a common issue that affects both men and women of various age groups. The fat deposits under the chin can diminish the chin, jaw and neck definition, impacting the overall appearance of the face. A “double chin” is often not related to body weight and almost impossible to reduce without cosmetic treatment or plastic surgery. The extra fat can be caused by genetics or aging, neither of which you can control. At Avance Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer minimally invasive Kybella injections to eliminate your double chin at our clinic in the Reno/Tahoe, NV, and Lake Tahoe area.
Kybella uses a natural-forming substance to destroy fat cells. The main ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which targets the membranes of fat cells, causing them to deteriorate. When Kybella injections are placed in the area under the chin, the fat cells dissolve and the body reabsorbs the fat. Over a few weeks or months, the area shrinks and a large portion of the fat is permanently removed, revealing a more defined and svelte chin and neck.
Eliminate Your Double Chin
Kybella was the first minimally invasive treatment FDA-approved for treating a double chin. The procedure can be performed at our office in less than an hour, and there is no needed downtime or recovery. Several injections are required during each treatment. There may be some swelling or bruising from the injections. Most people require 2-3 treatments to achieve the desired effect to eliminate their double chin permanently.
